Came across this restaurant on our way from our hotel on 49th street to the Lincoln centre. We had a lovely pasta, wine and desert. The staff are very welcoming and helpful and prices are very reasonable. Would come back again.

I love the place! Small and very friendly. I had eggs benedicts with salmon and it was AMAZING! The table took a little while to be ready for us, but the food compensates the waiting time. My husband had omelet with spinach and ham.

We were staying nearby at the Hudon Hotel & had breakfasts here on 3 of the 5 mornings. We tried a couple of places nearby but kept coming back to this one. Great choices on the menu & pleasant staff.

For breakfast, service slow and scrambled eggs were not really scrambled but omelet like. Real veggie omelet was quite good. Coffee not very good and toast buttered with a toothpick! Better places on 9th ave.
