Doesn’t look like much from the street, but when you enter you are welcomed right away. The food came just a few minutes after ordering. And it tasted delicious.

Exactly as we expected - Scotty's diner was the authentic NYC breakfast experience we hoped for. Pancakes to die for and great efficient service - all at a very good value for money. Thoroughly recommend if you are staying in the area.
