Been there several times, it is not cheap but in a sunny New York day it's cheerful, service with a smile, good food and plenty of coffee. No time limit you can stay there and read with your coffee, or sit outside and see the Amsterdam Avenue life.

We first used this restaurant for breakfast as the hotel above it, in which we were staying, offered a 15% discount card on breakfasts. Their Eggs Benedict were to die for! So we returned for dinner ... 3 times! Very good food, fairly good service and a wide choice, but a little pricy. However, the food was well worth the... More

Great atmosphere. Very interesting brunch menu. Delicious coffee that flowed freely. I had the Croque Madam which was the best I have ever had. Even the lightly dressed side salad was excellent. My fried egg was perfectly cooked and the cheese and ham were delicious. My husband had the spicy lamb sausage scramble. Side potatoes and side salad. Outstanding meal... More

After seeing "An American in Paris" on Broadway, we took the 1 train uptown to 79th Street. Nice Matin is on the corner with Amsterdam Avenue. It has outdoor tables, but we chose to eat inside. We chose a table in a corner, near an open door. We were attended quickly, given the menu, and a wine list that has... More

OK food, mediocre service, a low-end wine list, but a great location on the Upper West Side. Some people like to be seen there, but why? It's just an OK restaurant, with tourist hype and a hotel connection.

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.
