Yum!

Lovely food with appreciable variety but the queues were unbelievable. The first day, after queuing outside for 25mins in temperatures slightly above zero degrees celsius, we had to give up as our 5yr old was starving.

A little bit of a wait for 4 people. But the food was great. The French Toast was very good and the memosas were excellent. Can't get over how good the coffee has been everywhere in NYC. This place was no exception. Hilly recommend making this a breakfast stop.

Feel in love with this place as soon as I walked in the door. The staff are friendly and relaxed. The food is all baked in house and delicious. Highly recommended.

I had a late lunch there and it was very good. The desserts are homemade and yummy. I've never eaten brunch there but I assume it must be outstanding as there's always a long line of folks waiting to eat.

It is not good, but it is okay. Food proportion is more than Enough but that also makes my taste bud stricter after the big dose. Bacon was thick, dry and hard (also burned black at the corner). We went on a cold 40°F April morning and the reception would not let us in till two other friends arrive. We... More

I've been here with some friends for a brunch during a sunny day. The food was delicious and very genuine. Here you can taste excellent pancackes and fries and of course bacon and eggs! The price was average. I surely suggest this place.

Headed up town to this lovely restaurant after seeing good reviews and we were not disappointed. Great pancakes and possibly the best bacon I've ever had! A large tub of Maple Syrup and all the tea/coffee we could drink also went down well. We'll definately come back if we are in NYC again.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
