Real fast service both late Friday night and early Saturday morning. Menu was normal diner menu and every thing available 24 hours a day. Stopped in Friday night with just my wife and Saturday with a group of 6 service was fast both times, even though Saturday morning it was crowded.

Just happened to find this place, a hidden breakfast and lunch gem. Friendly waitress and staff. A mom and pop place. Big menu for such a small place.Good food for a reasonable fee. Quick service, and a good reason to return! A good assortment of pastries and bagels. A breakfast winner in my book.

This is just a good old-fashioned New York diner with counter chairs or tables serving up great breakfast twenty-four hours a day. The prices are about two dollars cheaper that surrounding breakfast places and the coffee, which was terrific, was seventy-five cents cheaper that diners down the street. The service was excellent, the portions large and you can get in... More

Staff welcoming and a clean and pleasant interior. Unlimited coffee was good and breakfast was huge but the 3 egg omelette seemed to be made with with liquid egg mix, rather than new, fresh eggs. Home fries and bacon were good. Bill with tax and tip came to $20.

This place is open 24 hours. Most morning we had a great breakfast with wonderful service. I always enjoy getting extra cups of coffee without additional charges. Wide variety of food to suit everyone's tastes. We even tried dinner there one evening. While it is very busy for breakfast, dinner was quieter. In saying that the pasta dishes and soup... More

We read the reviews before we came out to NYC, we normally eat in the same diner each time, so thought we'd give somewhere else a try, and also our hotel recommended this diner... The service was ok, I ordered pancakes (my fav NYC breakfast) they were a disappointment, no taste, stodgy, undercooked and essentially inedible. Hubby had eggs and... More

This diner was just around the corner from our hotel and we loved it. It was the place to go to for brunch and the service was fast and friendly with constant iced water and coffee refills. It has a big menu and everything is prepared within eyesight. Thanks to all the staff for a great and authentic US diner... More

This NYC diner was great. Had a real diner feel to it, and everyone we encountered was really nice. We had the waffles and the cheese omelets, both very very good. The cheese omelet was my favorite, I added spinach to it, and it was delicious. I love breakfast and brunch, so to find a place like this for me... More

I would have eaten here more often but we didnt find it until the last day. I had a great cappuccino and my daughters had 2 massive slices of cake. The guy working the counter was really friendly. I was happy to see an authentic Italian diner in a sea of Greek owned diners (nothing against the greeks but the... More
