Great, quick food

We went for a midnight supper after a busy day in the city. I got the gyro dinner, it was delicious. The service was fast. The menu has many different options.

We stayed at the St Giles Tuscany around the corner from Scotty's. We had a sit-down breakfast there once, and then each morning after that I went on-line and ordered toast, bagels, coffee (and one morning, eggs/potatoes/bacon) that I would go pick up and bring back to the room while we got ready for the day. Scotty's is fast and... More

We visited on 3 occasions during our week long stay at a nearby hotel. The waiters were friendly and after walking around NYC the regular top ups of water and ice were much appreciated by us. Food was all very tasty. I don't know what their service charge policy is, twice it wasn't added to bill and once it was.

We were headed up toward Grand Central on a Sunday morning and decided to stop off at Scottys for Brunch. We found the place on Trip Advisor whilst wondering around. The staff were helpful and courteous and our food come really quickly. My wife and I had the deluxe waffles and pancakes with bacon and eggs. Both were big portions... More

Called in for Breakfast before a long day sight seeing on foot. Plenty of choice on the menu for reasonable value. Opted for the eggs benedict,delicious and big serving. Plenty of good coffee too It's just a couple of blocks from Grand Central and right by out Park Ave. Hotel so an ideal start to the day.

We stayed in a hotel just round the corner and had breakfast there every morning of our five day stay. Service was quick, food was fab and far less expensive and far more filling than the Hotel Continental breakfast available. Being open 24/7 we also used it one evening on our way back for a late night tea and I... More

We really enjoyed the food, they served it very fast and it is a good price for what you receive. We went back every single day to have our breakfast there (4 days). I liked the french toast and the waffles, not too much the pancakes. The omelettes are great.

Did not see any reviews before we landed up here. We were just walking past looking for somewhere to eat. Fast friendly service. The food was reasonable.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
