Cozy little diner... what's not to like?

This is a great little diner with a good menu selection and cozy atmosphere. Staff is friendly, food is fresh and delicious. My hubby loved his bagel and lox and I my tuna platter totally hit the spot. My daughter was thrilled to see a smoothie selection too!

The woman in charge is entertaining, she is a tough lady that shows her workers who's boss....it was fun to watch. It was a real NY kinda place. The food was really good for the price. It was a great start to the morning.

8 go to NYC once or twice a year, usually going into the city very early with my son. I need to get breakfast and kill some time before the stores open. My daughter had introduced me to this place when she lived in the neighborhood 20 yrs ago. Wow! What a treat! Great poached eggs, hot, crisp toast, and... More

We went in search of breakfast at the Sunflower Diner in New York but it did not live up to its rave reviews. Very disinterested service, which is unusual for NYC and breakfast was only average.

Typical local diner, where everything is made fresh to order for a very decent price. My eggs Benedict were perfect. Only minus thing: the waitress was so fast that she missed my request for some extra bacon.

I was a customer for 14 years until tonight. I walked in at 12:45am (place closes at 1am) to grab a muffin to go. The door was open but the guy at the register gave me the rude and obnoxious cut throat "we're done" gesture. I asked one of the waiters who has known me for over a decade if... More

neighborhood restaurant with varied menu, but mostly breakfasts. Excellent menu and proportions, very affordable. A busy place but excellent service. Perfect place for a leisure breakfast

Breakfast is best. For some reason, the oatmeal doesn't appear on the menu. But it is the real deal--stirred and cooked not instant from a packet. Coffee refills never stop.

Lovely food, great friendly, fast service, nice calm family atmosphere. $2 -$3 dollars less than Tic Toc for similar meals. Waitress very helpful, even gave us her phone to use so we could check for water taxi details. Would well recommend this diner to anybody looking for a relaxing meal...wish we had found it earlier.
