Good breakfast

Excellent pancakes and omelets. Nice find in upper west side in Manhattan. Service was slow for our table but owner made up for it by automatically giving us a significant discount on entire bill! Food tasted fabulous and bill adjustment made it worth the wait in the end!!

You would be hard pressed to find a cheaper brunch spot in NYC. The food quality is excellent as well. The wait staff leave much to be desired but the overall experience is great. Be prepared to wait for brunch if you go late in the day (10-12). Go early and shouldn't be a problem (9-10).

Had lunch here. It was my second visit. The first time the queue was too long and we were hungry! This was a random weekday lunch and the place had a few tables free. Outstanding Veggie burger. Great service. Has a lovely small town cafe ambience. Worth dropping in if you are in the vicinity.

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. We returned the next day, earlier in the morning this time and got in after 15mins. The pancakes, waffles and biscuits were absolutely moreish.... More

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.
