Basic dinner at best !! It definitely went down hill over the years. Maybe a new owner. Service at minimum.I really don't want to say anymore

We had brunch here one morning and wished we'd kept moving up the street. Friendly enough place, but the food was mediocre and prices a bit high for the quality. It's popular with locals, so maybe we were missing something.

Each time I go to NYC, a Saturday routine is a wander round Chelsea and breakfast here. It's great. A small family run small café with about 10 tables. A wide and varied breakfast menu with healthy (and not so heathy) options. Try it.

Great coffee Service attentive and food is good. Great location for people watching on Hudson. Good location to catch a taxi or uber after to get to destinations. Nice outdoor seating. Very close to shopping on Bleeker Street.

Great value for money, lovely location, superb freshly cooked food with great staff. You may guess we love this place. We had breakfast there twice and would go again.

We stopped in here on Halloween. The staff were friendly, service was good and the food was fresh and good. There seemed to be a lot of regulars who knew the staff, yet we felt welcome. Wonderful dinner.

I went to the Bus Stop café for breakfast and enjoyed an eggwhite omelet with spinach, goat cheese and bacon. The service was swift and nice and so was the food. I really enjoyed this cute little place and can absolutely recommend it for a wonderful morning break:o)

We have been going here regularly for 20 years. This is a solid diner with lots of variety and specials. Its the kind of place where I come dragging in after a long day and the Manager takes one look at me and says relax and hands me a glass of wine. How can you not appreciate that? The food... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
