I'm the kind of person that needs a strong breakfast to start the day, and when you're visiting Manhattan and needs calories for walking and walking, make sure you start your day here for a "real" breakfast, you know that I mean: fried eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, etc. Want a nice lunch for a fair price, a good dinner after...

Just around the corner from our hotel, this place is open 24hrs a day. Feels like a small family run business. Breakfast was good, plenty of choices.

Scotty's Diner is affordable and fast. The space is limited but they turn tables quickly and efficiently. Your dollar goes far at this diner. The portions are generous. Great spot to start your day.

Scotty's was ok, the food was good and the service friendly but we paid over $75 for breakfast which I thought was a bit steep even for NYC for 4 x breakfasts and coffee.

The barbeque burger deluxe was hot, fresh and juicy. Service was prompt and the fries were fresh also.

Exactly what we wanted, American breakfast in a real American Diner. After seeing it on trip advisor, it was well worth following the recommendation of others. Took a while to find it as the sign was being replaced but when we found it we thought it fabulous. Food was great, and far too much, and service was great, New York... More

I was visiting NYC for a week long event and stayed at a hotel around the corner from Scotty's Diner. I ate breakfast at Scotty's most mornings and occasionally had diner there. The service was excellent and the food was good. Most dishes had plenty of food on the plate and for the cost it was economical compared to other... More

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.
