“Great food, amazing prices and a great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Went here after reading the reviews on our first morning and again on our last as nowhere else lived up to this place.

When you walk in you sit at the counter or the table at the back, if you prefer you can order takeout from the window rather than going in.

More or less every imaginable breakfast item is available and its all cooked in front of you. The portions are more than generous, service fast and very friendly and the food pretty dam good.

What made this place for us was how all the people in there are talking to each other. We got some great tips for our holiday from locals in there, which we wouldn't have got anywhere else.

If you are here on holiday and looking for places to have breakfast then this place really needs to be on the top of your list.

“The Greek Wrap Is Awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

The Greek Wrap was very good.The prices are a bargain at this establishment.The menu is somewhat overwhelming to me.Many restaurants try to have every item on a menu and make it more complicated. If they narrow down,it would help them.

Thanks Brigitte Grisanti New York Foodie

“Best breakfast I've had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Came here three times during my week in New York. First time was just for a snack, had a cinnamon bagel which was very good value for $1 hot with butter and they wrapped it for me to take away! Second time I had French toast which is amazing and served with the best golden syrup for under $5 and constant refills of my tea. Staff were friendly and very quick, really quirky bar service and very small place so not good for large groups. Would definitely recommend the big man breakfast that I had on my 3rd visit - toast, bacon, eggs, home fries and French toast or pancakes for about $8.50. Amazing value and very good food! Can't wait to go back, will definitely try one of the sandwiches next time - they looked very good!
