Loved it. Food was the highlight. They do an Israeli breakfast better than the original in Israel. Large and tasty portions, friendly service and refreshing menu. Great for kids.

We ate at the Manhattan location (93rd and Amsterdam). The portions are large and the food very tasty. My only issues are that the tables are one on top of the other and the place so noisy you can't carry on any conversation.

We went here for brunch. Generous portions for a reasonable price. Also centrally located with good shopping in the area

Salads really are great and so are the panini - try the Mizrahi. The split soup was watery and salty - but since I had asked to taste it before I ordered, didn't end up getting it. It's cheerful and spacious - definitely good for a lunch or outing with the kids. Less so for dinner.

The noise level at lunchtime is a bit high but the food usually makes up for it. The variety and freshness of the menu items is excellent

This is a kosher dairy restaurant. The food is OK but nothing to write home about. I normally get an omelette which comes with a salad. The dressing on the salad tastes the same no matter which one you order - only the color changes.

I brought my family for brunch this morning, for my Son's birthday. 7 people In my 30+ years of going to restaurants, I have never had worse service in my life. EVERYONE, from the waiters, to the woman at the cashier, was nasty. Not one person, even from the beginning, even said Hi, good morning, thank you, - I don't... More

We have been here many times as a family. The food has always been tasty (and a bit pricy) but the service has often been poor. As well, I have a pet peeve, where if we order appetizers, they should come BEFORE the main course, as opposed to they coming with the main course. We have asked the servers here... More
