This cafe is well located and has an appealing way of presenting the food. Has lots of traffic and a good variety on the menu. I gave it a 3 because I returned a second day and asked if the food in the display was fresh - I was informed it was from that same morning. I asked for a salmon and cream cheese sandwich that looked appetizing and when I bit into it the cucumbers were still frozen as were bits of the salmon. Not fresh. Omelletes were good and coffee excellent. Perhpas defrost before putting out displays or don't tell customers the food is fresh.

Recommend - but would advise on getting your food prepared and not buying ready made.

Stopped here after touring the Empire state Building... wanted something quick and easy. This place deserves more than just a quick stop - the staff are fantastically friendly and helpful - the food is GOOD and reasonably priced for New York City. Located at the corner of 36th and 5th Avenue it's a convenience place to have a quick meal... Belgian Waffles for breakfast ! YUMMY !!!

Ate here for a quick dinner on 11/6/13. Cheese burger, fries and 2 blue moon's...$18.39. Not cheap but it IS NYC and it IS ON 5th AVE...huge variety but not a lot different from many of the othersimilar establishments in this area...typical city fare. Staff was friendly. Hamburger was nothing speacial (from a frozen patty). Would eat here again if I was in the area....stayed at Holiday Inn Express a few doors down so convenient to hotel too.

a block off Broadway and a couple blocks from the Empire State Building ... you'd expect an authentic NYC Deli. Don't be fooled as this place has the look; but, that's about the only thing that resembles a deli. Staff was surly and nasty. sandwiches were overpriced (higher than the venerable Carnegie Deli by a couple bucks) and assembled from sub-standard pastrami, corned beef on a stale kaiser. we also ordered a penne pasta w/ chicken that was borderline inedible. an unequivocable, absolute rip-off!

Stopped in here one evening late. Ordered a Philly Cheesesteak which was really good. There is a good variety of food, you're sure to find something to suit.

There's nothing fancy about it. It's a perfect place when you want something nice and tasty but didn't want a big formal meal.
