The food is tasty, portions generous, prices reasonable and lots of variety. But I rate this diner higher than others for service. Very friendly, relaxed and helpful. Lots of solo diners there and it was obvious some were regulars -- just very comfortable. It was a great stop after 2 hours in Barnes and Noble across the street. I had... More

Brilliant wee cafe we went to for breakfast a couple of days. Food was fantastic - really wide choice, and excellent service. Would highly recommend - but go early at the weekend as it gets very busy.

Two out-of-town ers looking for something early Sunday morning. Didn't want to wait hours for the overpriced brunch places to open and we found this place. French toast was phenomenal, caramelized on the grill but not too sweet. Eggs were delicious and there's nothing like fresh squeezed orange juice! The service was on point and I would definitely return and... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
