I was staying at a hotel around the corner for a week in July. I came to this place most mornings for breakfast before work. I am from the UK and this place summed up to me what a good New York City diner should be... quick and efficient service, generous portions, tasty food, relatively cheap and lots of coffee... More

Quick and tasty. Actually served tea hot - very welcome. Service was good and I felt it was an iconic set up of diners/cafes/restaurants you see in the movies!

Good to great food, pretty much whatever you want. Daily specials, ridiculous desserts, you know what you're getting.

I first visited Viand when I stayed at the nearby Beacon hotel with my family 4 years ago and such was our delight with the quality of this cafe we had breakfast in there every day. I returned to New York last month with my wife and stayed in a different part of Manhattan but had to re-visit Viand to... More

Cafe Viand has great breakfast and lunch specials. It is uncrowded by NYC standards, service is quick and the prices are reasonable. Nothing trendy about it, but easy for kids and others who need a break from high prices and precious food.

Went there for breakfast. The place was rather busy but the food was not nice. Though the portions were large but the food was tasteless. I ordered french toasts and that didn't taste and look very nice. Will go elsewhere next time.

We stopped here twice... Fresh ingredients, tasty and reasonable for Manhattan. Wife's Cobb salad ha enough moist chicken for 2 meals. Right next to Beacon theater on Broadway where we watched all preparations for the Tony awards. Will be back!

Food portions huge, service was great and you get to take home what you can't eat, which makes for a cheap breakfast the next day

I might have given this a "3" if there were few places to go in the area, but as there are lots of restaurants, I'd have to advise to go someplace else. Maybe part of the problem was that they sat us right by the door. But, this could have been overlooked if the food was good. They serve diner... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
