We were made to feel really welcome here. Glasses of water as soon as we arrived. Coffee topped up as soon as we needed and delicious food. Friendly and efficient staff watched over by the owner who seemed to take a real interest in the customers. Lots of local New Yorkers in there so felt very authentic to us British... More

We both wanted to try a 'proper' American breakfast. I had French Toast with fruit and Dave went for Pancakes and Bacon. Both were very tasty and the pancakes were unbelievable light. We went at brunch time rather than breakfast. The staff were very friendly and happy to help as we asked questions on the menu. Didn't even give us... More

This place was just a couple of blocks from our hotel on Park Avenue. We visited a few times as it was ranked so highly on Trip Advisor. Other places around, but nit ranked as highly. Great menu, all the stuff you would expect on a US b/fast menu. Quick and speedy service, generous portions and half decent food that... More

I had Pancakes and my friend had Bacon and Eggs. Both were very tasty. The Diner is very central and close to Grand Central. The atmosphere was very good and the service was very good too.

My third visit in eight years. Still the same staff. Always buzzing, and busy. Nothing too flash, just how it should be. Water on the table within seconds, huge menu(try the californian omelette), coffee automatically refilled, broad range of customers, lots of locals as well as some tourists. Thankfully they now include service in the bill which helps us English... More

Our hotel concierge recommended Scotty's for a cheap (but good!) breakfast, only it wasn't that great. I ordered blueberry pancakes and bacon; pretty simple right? The pancakes had to be sent back to the kitchen as they weren't thoroughly cooked and when I got my plate back and ate my meal, it was just ok. Nothing to rave about. It... More

Popped in to Scottys Diner for breakfast one morning. Greeted and sat down right away. Asked for our drinks order and given menus. The menus are very extensive and can offer you most anything you can think of for breakfast. Our food arrived at different times, but the waiter did apologise for this, and we did have a couple of...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
