If you want a decadent cheesecake, New York style, buttery and mouthwatering, this is the place. Unfortunately we only came upon this little gem at the end of our trip and when we got off the subway at the 2nd Avenue stop, otherwise we would have gone there for breakfast and other goodies. The cheesecake was so good my husband... More

Well, without a doubt, this cafe has THE most decadent red velvet cheesecake! I will go there every time I am in NYC. My sister loves their blackout cake. Which ever your fancy, you won't be disappointed.

We stayed 1 week in NY and this became our breakfast place. Great bacon and eggs, and amazing cheese cake. Staff was super friendly and nice.

Staff were great at this little quaint breakfast place. Great food and you certainly get what you pay for (and then some). Highly recommend eating your breakfast at this place in the lower east side.

Stopped here hungry, cold and disillusioned with the look of Katz's deli. It was a great surprise. The food was delicious and the service was extremely friendly and efficient. Great burgers, fries, quiche and soup. We were given glasses of iced water as soon as we sat down. Loved this place.

Stopped in here after a trip to Katz's Deli. The sweets were good and the menu looked good. The espresso was in drinkable and service rather brusque.

I had the cherry pie which I barely tasted or saw the cherries. It was just gooey. The lady at the counter behaved like she hated her job and everyone else. She told me off when I was trying to make an order. Why is she even here.

Omg this place is terrible! The service was max terrible. ThEre were two waiters there fighting like yelling across the dining area. That was awkward. Then the food comes and was just bagged whole wheat bread like the kind you used to get pbj's on when you were 7. Undercooked eggs and they forgot the bacon on both breakfasts. Coffee... More

Popped in for a quick breakfast while staying at the Thompson next door. Good selection of breakfast and lunch options, and a full case of desserts. Staff was friendly. Nothing fancy, but a cute spot for a quick breakfast - sometimes that's all you need.

A perfect breakfast in the LES to fullfill your stomach before going to work. The price is cheap given the size of the meal...
