“Excellent breakfast! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Heaving venue, but fast friendly efficient service that whittled down the queue with ease. Refillable coffee was great, omelettes to die for and the scones were great! Right next to grand central for sight seeing and connections to the city!

“A little disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

We had lunch here on our last day, and was expecting great things. A little underwhelmed...service average and food ok without being memorable,

Will not be returning as better options all around.

“Looking for perfect pancakes?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Well Pershing Square is the place to go! I only go there for breakfast and enjoy their perfectly made pancakes! They are fluffy and tasty and alway good. Make sure you make a reservation if you want to sit in a booth.

“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

We were visiting NYC with our eight year old and twelve year old and looking for a good but unique breakfast choice. Pershing Square was definitely a hit. A beautiful diner located UNDER a bridge right outside Union Station in sight of the Chrysler building. The food was fantastic and you can watch them fresh squeeze the orange juice just inside the door. We beat the breakfast crowd on a Sunday morning and didn't have to way too long. The ambiance of the brick tiled ceiling and classic ambiance was great. Highly recommend it!

“Best Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

The sign says best breakfast. It was pretty good. There was a long line when we arrived for a Saturday brunch but it moved very quickly. Food was delicious and quick. Our server didn't come back to ask us if we needed anything. We did ask 2 other people for another cup of coffee but never got it until the waitress brought our check. They were cleaning off our table while we were still sitting there as if trying to get us to leave quickly. We weren't planning on staying long, just for a 2nd cup of coffee. The food was good though!
