“Recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

During a recent vacation stay in NYC we ate breakfast in this typical New York diner four times (which shows how much we enjoyed it). The food is good, the service efficient and it is reasonable value for money.

The place is open 24 hours a day except Sundays when it closes at 10.00 pm. The menu is extensive and offers a lot of choice for lunch and dinner as well.

There is a lot of competition in the area but the Morning Star Cafe is definitely worth a try, I don't think you will be disappointed.

More information, including full menu is available at http://www.morningstarcafenyc.com/ - they also deliver!

“Quintessential NYC Diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

On checking into our hotel and room not being ready, this diner was recommended by the hotel for lunch. Enjoyed it so much came back 3 times during our short NYC stay. The place is clean, welcome is friendly, service is good and appears to be frequented and supported by an army of contented regulars.

Can recommend the burgers - but beware, portions are large. The French Toast breakfasts are superb with genuine maple syrup. Bottomless cup of coffee rounds things off nicely. Very busy at peak times and the vibe is good. Good value for money in an expensive city.

“Great neighborhood place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

Food, service and atmosphere were so perfectly NYC. The sausage is amazing - its seasoned with rosemary. Yum! This restaurant was recommended by a local and we'll most definitely recommend it to our friends.

“Ok place but not first choice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

The food was decent but the place could use a makeover and cleaner bathrooms.
Waiter service was ok but not very friendly, strictly business.
