I have been to this diner a number of times. Viand, adjacent to a hotel, is a good size, clean and comfortable with tables/chairs, booths and a counter in the back. It is a bit pricey, but the selection is good, and you are not limited limited to eggs or burgers like with other diners. Have not tried everything on... More

Fast service and great comfort food. Good old fashioned diner. My husband ordered the omelette which was served well. Pancakes were light and fluffy. Lox and bagel was fresh. Will definitely come back again.

We have enjoyed Viand on Madison for many, many years, especially for breakfast. It was hard to beat for food, atmosphere and fun! Did not realize a second had been opened on Broadway! We enjoyed the new venue and neighborhood. It is larger and brighter but nicely reminiscent of the original. Had the oatmeal with berries and walnuts for the... More

I ate here for breakfast every day of my 4 day stay and felt like I found a home base. Had the oatmeal, omelette, corned beef hash and scrambled eggs. Toast comes with homemade jam - and they even substituted for an amazing gluten free toast at no extra charge! It's really a neighborhood oriented place - the waitress commented... More

We were staying at a hotel 2 blocks away and decided to try Cafe Viand. The menu is large and it looks good but I didn't like the food as much as I expected to. I had the meatloaf and it tasted very garlicy and not hearty and meaty. The bread came out all warm but once it cooled off... More

Great service, great coffee, and the food...was out of this world. One of the best breakfasts I have had in a very long time. Hope we can do lunch next time we are in town.

Cafe Viand is next door to the hotel I stay in when visiting NYC and given that it had snowed all day, there was a good 6" on the ground and I'm currently needing a crutch to walk I ate dinner there rather than risk a fall crossing the street to get some prepared food at either Fairway Market or...

We went for breakfast. The place is OK but not moer than that. There are many other options in this area which are better.

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.
