Had breakfast here twice and both times the food was delicious. Staff were great to watch as they placed orders for the chef. Always busy and always good food. Loved it.

Omelette regrettable like a bad blind date. The potatoes were just warmed up on a pan and cooked God knows when. Distrust good reviews for this place and just go somewhere else.

Twenty-four hour menu, quick and delicious breakfast, lots of coffee and quick service in a bustling and gruff, yet friendly, attitude. A true taste of NYC in every way - loved it!

Tried this place after reading some positive reviews. Friendly staff and a TV style American diner layout. Never ending coffee but underwhelmed by the food. It arrived very quickly, almost making us feel rushed. The French toast was good but the eggs benedict came with a strange mustard sauce. Nice to have tried it as an experience but left feeling...

This was a 5 minutes walk from my hotel and with a toddler, you don't want too much of a time lapse between waking up and breakfast. The reviews on both TA and other sites were great. Atmosphere is quintessentially that of an American diner. Servers are polite. Menu lacks excitement or may be I'm spoilt for choice. We ordered... More

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.
