“Weird service, food just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

We were a party of three adults, but one of us joined the table after the other two. The waiter was notified, but 15 minutes later came over and said to the latecomer, "You know what you want?" Tough to decide since he had neglected to bring a menu or a third place setting. We constantly had to flag this guy down, waited quite a while for the check and it wasn't even busy. We ordered a reuben sandwich, two Greek salads and a side of fries. The reuben was open face, so my friend ate it with a knife and fork. The Greek salads were pretty good and large enough to take half home for the next day. However, the pita bread triangles were pretty hard, possibly over-toasted or stale. Fries were typical previously-frozen, but OK. Our teenage kids were at another table and I had a taste of their brownie dessert. It was really good - very chocolately, very rich. A large square, too. They need to improve the service, though. Left a very small tip. The place is very convenient to Iona College. I would guess they get a lot of student trade.

“I would not eat here again if it was free”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Went to this dive at 6:30am. There was nobody in the place. It took 10 minutes to get a coffee. I ordered two eggs over, with sausage, home fries, toast. Well as soon as the waiter went into the kitchen he came out with my breakfast, IMPOSSIBLE. When it was served the sausage was burnt, and looked like last weeks supply. The eggs where cold and runny., and not over easy. It was terrible. I sent it back, and don't you know the waiter came out with the same meal again!! I left the place and told him where the chef could put both meals. I would not go here if it was the last meal on earth. PLEASE STAY AWAY. There are much better place in New Rochelle to have breakfast.....
