If they called it Bus Stop 'Diner' it would among the best.

The name they use is "Bus Stop Café." The menu and staff are evocative of a Greek diner, but the space and decor fit in with the West Village area. As diner fare, it was above average. Part of the "café" ambiance comes from the outdoor seating which, alas, was too cold to use. It would have been a... read more

This was my first time here after walking the High Line and exploring that part of the village. The food was very tasty and I thought the price was very reasonable. The staff was very polite and it was quiet and cozy. I will return.

Great New York breakfast! Good service, nice feelings about this place. Genuine and simple! Close to BonBonniere, which is overrated, In my opinion. I'll come back to Bus Stop some day!

After jogging the High Line we went here for breakfast, and yumm was audibly heard from our table. I had the cornbeef hash, and my wife had the filled croissant. Both were amazing, and the coffee was hot on a slushy New York day. Try the Bus Stop, and you won't be let down.

It's not always easy to find an affordable place to eat (well) in NYC but Bus Café was really a positive surprise. We came here just after doing the walk on the High Line. Staff was very friendly and welcoming, Local customers. Of course it's not a gastronomic place, food is like at home, big portions and very tasty. We... More

Open very early! We needed a place at 6 am and it was the only place that was open. So we tried! Nice atmosphere, the food and coffee was good and the service was very friendly! Low prices compared the other places nearby... We went back!

The coffee and Reuben sandwich were very good, and the staff was very friendly: a nice place to stop on the run.

Randomly a lady on the street said go to the bus stop, so not knowing where to go for dinner we did. It was a great recommendation and was just what we wanted - really nice food and good value - great salads, pastas and fish selection. Lovely ambiance, so nice in fact that we went back there for breakfast... More

The food here is simple but good. I had the western omelette and my wife had the pancakes. My omelette was good but my wife's pancakes were amazing! Sweet and light and massive. The service here is efficient without too much fluff but that is how I prefer it.

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.
