Quality diner-like cafe

They have classic/chewy bagels, sandwiches and sweets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lots of seating. Staff are friendly and engaging and the coffee is good. Clean, efficient, bright space... not cozy with brown leather chairs... but also not the tight crowds.

Stopped in as an alternative to the expensive buffet at my hotel. Got a good bacon, egg, cheese sandwich on a roll...made to order and very reasonably priced. Found out that they would deliver to my hotel so I tried that the next day. Omelet and potatoes were so-so...probably due to the delivery time...which wasn't really bad time-wise...I guess breakfast... More

Good little spot to grab breakfast and watch the world go by in midtown. Prices were good - plenty of cups of self-serv steel cut oats, grab the brown sugar and raisins below and stir in and enjoy the sights of NYC.

Great selection of food for a group that can't agree on what they want to eat. Yummy pastries. Crowd depends on the time of day.

Not many places for good breakfast in this neighborhood, I agree. But this is one is particularly expensive for an mediocre quality. Muffins and croissants are tasteless. Waiters are rude. Ah, and to to top it all, loud music at 6:30 in the morning.

I had been really disappointed with other breakfast options nearby but this one was a winner. Love that they will make your omelet to order; they also have other healthy options to round out a good breakfast. Will certainly skip some of the others and go here next time we're in New York.

I absolutely love the different types of quinoa salads!! I've tried the tofu bowl and the mediterranean bowl - just fantastic! The place (on 51st. betw. 5th & 6th) is clean - really great & fresh!

We had a quick breakfast in here one morning, lots of options, fruits, yoghurts, eggs and pancakes. I asked for an egg white omelette which they were happy to oblige and make. The place is clean and tidy, lots of seating and good lighting. Coffee wasn't bad either and the staff were friendly

This place is an average fast food place. It was ok but nothing tasted unique to the place. At least what I tried. It was a forgettable experience.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
