“Tasty Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Stopped in here for bfast one morning. It's an old school diner that serves delicious bfast food. After eating a dried mess at the Red Flame, this place was like Diner Heaven. Yes the decor is dated and worn but you have to ignore that because the service, and quality of food is what makes this place tick.

The only reason I didn't give it an excellent rating was because the server reminded me that the tip was not included in the bill he handed me. DUH dude you think I've never eaten in a restaurant before?

Anyway, I highly recommend this Diner for an old school, delicious, cheap breakfast. GO Olympic!

“Excellent value”

Found this to be an excellent location for quality, no frills breakfasts each morning of our trip. Fast and efficient service and consistently high standard of food. A great way to start busy days in the city.

“As good as I remembered”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We had breakfast here every morning of our last visit to NY and did the same this time. Good plain food served quickly at a reasonable price. It's perfect for breakfast or any meal, particularly if you're on a budget.
