Quality diner for a great family breakfast next to Grand Central Station. Tables and seating in the main restaurant gave a relaxed family feel with booths providing privacy and comfortable dining. Quick and polite service with plenty of waitors. Towards the higher end of budget but good american diner experience.

Really glad we found this place under the bridge by Grand Central. Fairly expensive for a diner but you could tell it would be good by the number of people eating there. We had pancakes which were delicious and my husband had the best omelette he had ever tasted! Another day we had lunch there and my daughter and husband... More

Amazing atmosphere, amazing food, amazing location. p.s. if you want something off of the menu or a combination of foods (like pancakes with eggs and bacon) theyll make it for you.

A lovely ideal location for breakfast if you are planning a visit to Grand Central Station in NY. We received super service from our waitress. Food was plentiful albeit expensive. I would recommend it to all tourists looking for an authentic New York/American breakfast.

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.
