Excellent Service

A traditional American Diner. Great for breakfast! Good food quick service.Because of its location and good service it gets very busy. If you are in the area of Grand Central Station give it a try.

Fortunately, we beat the rush as there was soon a line out the door. This is a NY diner, so don't expect to be coddled, they move you in and out, and will let you know to get out of their way while on the narrow aisle. That being said, they have plenty of staff on the floor to get... More

Just another expensive mid-town diner. My mum likes it here, but I am not wild about it. An omelet and hot coffee are my traditional choices here. Only one big advantage about this place. It's the cheapest diner of the others nearby. Staff service and seating is ok.

Probably not a first choice for a future breakfast. The Leo (Lox and Onions) Omelet had a good quantity of lox, but was overcooked, and my order of potatoes was not browned as requested. A blueberry muffin was dry and rather tasteless. We returned a cup of coffee because the mug was stained with lipstick (but this was not acknowledged... More

Literally stumbled on this place but we were sure glad we did! The atmosphere feels traditional NY authentic...lots of shouting, rushing around and general hustle and bustle. Loved the food...great value and loads of choice. Good value too...not at all bad for Central Manhattan.

We were in New York for 3 days and looking for a place to have breakfast, we came accross Scotty's and thought we would give it a try, how lucky we did. A great little place serving a great selection of food. We all had a scrumptious breakfast served by some really friendly staff. You might walk by it as... More

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.
