“Great breakfast! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

This is a popular place so get there early.
They do really light pancakes with fresh strawberries yum!
The service is quick but rude. So come in knowing this, and you wont be offended! Coffee ain't great but their juices are great.

“Defiantly recommend !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

We visited here during a few bitterly cold days in February 2014 and loved it! We had eggs Benedict with Canadian bacon and omelettes with hash brown both amazing x go you will not be disappointed ! We went back after trying other less impressive diners.

“Perfect diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

As I bemoan the decline of simple, classic diners in New York, I am always comforted to know the Waverly still exists. They of course have a menu jam-packed with everything under the sun (as any good diner should), but what I go to diner's for is breakfast at any hour of the day or night. Went again recently with a friend for a super late lunch - waffles and scrambled eggs. So good! Also critical to a real diner... bottomless cup of coffee and waitstaff who never kick you out.

“Quality Has Gone Down Lately”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

I used to be a regular at this place but moved out of the neighborhood. Maybe "you can't go home again," but things are not what they once were. The service is attentive if perfunctory, like it always was, and the food has gone downhill. They're clearly using more frozen products and bulk-prepared items, such as hash browns and chicken salad. The muffins used to be really good but now taste like a cardboard box. It's still a cool destination, very popular, but try to order something they make in house, like scrambled eggs or a hamburger. And don't think you can sit and relax at this cozy joint. Once you take your last bite, they strip your table and make it clear you need to move on.
