Awake early in NYC with jet-lag traveling solo, found this spot among the few proper diners already open at 6am. Clean and modern feel while still a familiar and friendly down-to-earth diner made the location nice to visit. Service could improve. For there being only two customers there, it was surprising to have to ask for coffee and wait a... More

Conveniently located to Yotel where we stayed, this diner has standard diner fare at competitive prices. The place was clean and well lit. The single booth was a bit crowded for me and my purse and packages. The service was a bit slow, though the wait staff was friendly.The hamburger was juicy. The fries were decidedly old and dry. The... More

The diner is located between 9th and 10 th on 42 St which makes it in the Theatre district. The decor is well done and imaginative. Service is excellent, fast and professional. The menu offers a Brunch which was quite well done. The Mexican Frittata was exceptional. The sandwiches are also excellent. They have a well stocked bar as well.... More

Great stop for breakfast- right around the corner from our hotel. The Eggs benny and potatoes were very good too! Service was decent.

Having been here a few times before, on my recommendation my friend and I came for brunch. We wound up with the regular breakfast menu because alcohol couldn't be served until 10 even though the menu billed the brunch beginning at 9. Although the staff was very nice and the service was good, the food was not nearly as good... More

I can't speak of anything on their menu for lunch or dinner, but we had a wonderful breakfast here and the waitress was very nice and friendly. Potatoes were especially good and of course it's New York so there was a great bagel with lox!

I ordered room service from Travel Inn (just down the street). Delivery was prompt and food delicious - reasonably priced too. Chef's salad was amazing, and there was enough to last me 2 days!

Neat little place. Food was very good. Kind of pricey but fairly typical for NYC. Off of the Times Square area a little, so not too busy. Breakfast good, would come back and try lunch/dinner if we had the chance. Worth a visit!

Visited for breakfast where food was fantastic especially the pancakes and sausages. What I didn't like was waiting staff informed you service charge was not added to your bill but they would expect to get 18%. Do not like getting told what to give as a service charge. Rudest thing was they did not even thank you when they got... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
