We were in the area and decided to have breakfast here. Negatives: Small place with tables quite close together. We spent our entire breakfast listening to our neighbours animated conversation. Service was ok, but I really wish breakfast servers would remember to fill up coffee cups. Positives: One of my daughters loved the fact that they had a tofu scramble... More

Just stopped here for coffee, so not a real review. But on the look of it, I'd have to say that it is very promising for food also. Down for a return.

Loved their brunch. The restaurant is not very big, but if you get there before noon, you're not going to wait too long. You definitely have to try the strawberry butter with the biscuits. We ended up taking more to go because it was so good.

I went for a late breakfast today around 1pm. The service was abysmal--it took 25 minutes for my eggs to arrive, and they came only after I asked numerous times for the order and then threatened to walk out. The coffee was brought lukewarm and was tasteless--in fact it tasted like dishwater. I had to ask the waitress to make... More

The food was excellent!!! However, the service was TERRIBLE. there was only one other table in the restaurant and it took 20 minutes to get drinks, and they sent the wrong food to our table twice.

I had very high expectations. Food was fresh and good, but I have had better. Omelettes were good, very good french toast. Prices within normal brunch range

The breakfast here was delicious. My husband got the lumberjack, which was a ton of food. I ordered the french toast, and it was amazing. Unfortunately, the service wasn't the best. Our waiter wasn't the friendliest, and it took a while for our food to come out. Overall, it was a good place for breakfast food.

I was lucky enough to come on a weekday for lunch with some friends so we didn't have to queue up outside or anything which was good. Because if we had to line up for the meal we had, I likely wouldn't have been as happy with the meal. The food was quite tasty overall but the prices were a... More

We went here for breakfast/brunch on a Sunday and were not disappointed. True American breakfast with scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon and really good pancakes! The portions are generous. The service is good. There was a bit of a line outside when we got there, but we didn't have to wait very long. If you are more than two people you... More

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.
