This restaurant has been around since the 80's. if any of the reviewers were in their teens or older in the 80's then they would know that THIS is what a diner truly is.

Handy spot on 11St that does great value breakfast options. Ate here rather than the hotel (Z hotel) and really enjoyed the food - tasty and massive portions - fills you up for the day. Down to earth, honest to goodness, proper diner.

This place was inexpensive (really) and the food was decent and good. Did I mention inexpensive...my favorite was just a simple roll with butter, a throwback to my youth...it's a NY thing. But the breakfast menu had a nice variety with a no frills feel. I was only disappointed that it was closed on Sunday when we went back.
