We ate breakfast at the Galaxy and it was just okay. Prices were in line with other similar breakfast type restaurants in the city. Service was okay and we didn't have to wait too long for the food but one or two us got our food way before the rest of the table which was a little annoying. I would... More

The food was good but you need to make sure you get there early if your eating breakfast because it had a line out the door. They were quick to serve you and it was a fast paced meal so the slogan from Chicago's Ed Debevicks "eat it and beat it" came to mind.

We intended to go to westway diner but it was closed by the mental health dept.... some locals pointed us to galaxy and said they don't go anywhere else so we headed over! It was crowded but tables not too close together. Staff gave us lots of time to look at menus, I had eggs, home fries (which are boiled... More

I must apologise for the extreme (8 months!) delay in reviewing this location! We came across this place by chance as we walked from Intrepid towards Times Square (and trust me, that's quite a walk!) in mid-March 2016. By now the morning's food had worn off having walked for miles and miles already this day. We were happy with the... More

Nothing fancy, but good food at decent prices. This is our "go to" breakfast place. The service is fast. Crowded on the weekends at breakfast time. Only a few people at breakfast during the week. This is worth a visit, if you're on the west side at breakfast time.

This diner was a good find. We ate breakfast there twice. I can definitely recommend the Belgian waffle with fruit and yoghurt. Refills of coffee are complimentary and service is excellent. Prices are reasonable too. A must try.

Thank Dawn C

Thank you so much for joining us not once, but twice, Dawn -- it was such a pleasure to have you start the day on the right foot with us!

We stayed at the Ink 48 nearby and they recommended the Galaxy. It is a busy place but worth it. On the first morning we had to wait for a table and liked it so much we went back for breakfast four times. My favourite was pancakes with fruit and the eggs and bacon looked fantastic!

It may not be the best burger you have ever had, but it is consistent. Quick and reliable. Basic diner.

We stopped here for milkshakes and a snack before hitting Times Square. The food was decent, service decent too. There wasn't anything remarkable about the food, though the fries were definitely top notch, but it's a good easy option in the city.

This restaurant is not impressive from the outside, but it has a large menu and delicious food. We had stuffed sole, lasagna and ravioli they all came with a side salad or cup of soup and amazing bread and they were all delicious. The portions are quite large, too full for dessert ... which looked delicious too. I would highly... 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.
