Easy breakfast a block from our hotel. Friendly servers despite being busy. Lox and bagels and pancakes were good.

As first-time visitors to NYC, and after a 3.5 week roadtrip across 10 states, I can safely say this was the worst meal we had over our entire trip. Never mind the loooonnnng waits for any sort of attention (ordering, receiving food, waiting for check etc.), the food was TERRIBLE! All the focus appeared to be on the take-out diners... More

Not great, kind of shabby for sitting in maybe ok for a takeout breakfast or lunch. Price was ok for a couple of breakfast muffins and some pancakes, quality was ok but nothing special. Cutlery and plates are all disposable plastic and the coffee comes in a paper cup which was disappointing for a sit in cafe. Waitress was fairly... More

Our "free" breakfast vouchers came with a list of acceptable choices and even though we picked exactly what was allowed, we were told we would have additional out-of-pocket charges. The cashier was rude and very unclear when we asked her to please explain why. When we asked how much more she pulled some random figure out of the air without... More

Great selection of breakfast rolls etc at very reasonable rates. Wife and I got to breakfast rolls sausage bacon egg and coffee for about £10 all in. (Thats about Starbucks' coffee money!) Lunchtime unlimited salad bar is superb. Just round corner from Empire State building

Ordered. Received confirm but food never arrived. Don't even bother with this place. There are way too many good places around.

I was staying at Hotel 373 next door, and received vouchers for free breakfast here each morning. The service was speedy and very friendly, and the baked goods were delicious. There was a large seating area, and everything seemed very clean.

Went here for breakfast during my stay in New York and I'm so sorry I did. Cannot believe this place has so many good reviews on here. If it was possible I would mark this place 0/5. The staff are unfriendly, barely looking at you as they take your order. I had the eggs, sausage and potatoes. The eggs were... More
