Great food and very friendly staff! It's very close to Central Park and you can walk off your meal in minutes. Nice street views of NYC too.

Visited for breakfast on day 1 of our trip. Busy suggested good. Not so. We had to prompt for coffee refills, scrambled eggs overdone, bacon overdone. And the worst of it - each time one server went past me he bumped me. Not once did he acknowledge this or apologise. There's better across the road at Jackson Holde.

We waited twenty minutes to be seated and a half hour for our food to arrive, but it was pretty good! Here's what we had: Cafe Au Lait: Average Provençal Omelette: Average Homemade French Toast with real Maple Syrup: Exellent! Biscuits with Strawberry Butter: Excellent! Total price for two: $35. Overall we'll give it a Very Good, but I'm not... More

The food was fantastic- fresh, flavorful. The double thick smoked bacon was a stand out in the BLT omelet and they serve delicious organic French Roast coffee. We only tried breakfast but the quality was exceptional and very reasonable for NYC

I picked this restaurant based on the TripAdvisor reviews for a Sunday breakfast before heading the the Natural History Museum. Frankly, I don't know how it's gotten such good ones because we had a terrible experience from start to finish. We arrived right before 9am, and the restaurant was only about 1/2 full. We walked up to the hostess stand,... More

We went there 2 mornings to have breakfast. It was amazing. The second time we had to wait in line to be seated for about 40 minutes but it was worth it

Good Enough to Eat - that about sums it up. The food was good but not great. Our party of 4 waited about 15-20 minutes on a Saturday morning - really not too bad for a beautiful day on the Upper West Side. We had heard good things about this restaurant and were looking forward to a better than average... More

We can confirm the good reviews. if you are looking for a hearty breakfast this is pretty good. Country ambience... with plenty of variety on the menu. Service was good. Be careful on Sundays... the line is around the block!

I think this place is overrated, you'll have to wait in a big line to have some breakfast. The breakfast itself is okay, but not amazing. Ambiance is okay.

We got there on the early side on a beautiful Sunday morning, so we got a table outside. Decent service, good food, nice way to start our NYC vacation! By the time we left, there was a long line, so it is clearly a popular place.
