“Great music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

The waiters and waitresses here are all attempting to find a spot on Broadway and show their talents off whilst you eat - they are all very talented

Good food and great atmosphere

“A lot of Style, food was OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

We visited this place as it was round the block from our hotel. We stumbled on the place we did not go on purpose.

We went for breakfast and thought it was fantastic idea with the Waiters and Waitress' singing and taking in turns to entertain the guests, again a novelty we don't have in the UK.

Jaz had a Bagel with Egg and Bacon and I had BAcon omelette with home fries. It was nice enough but my omelette was ruined a bit by the cheese I have to remember when in the USA avoid the cheese as its always processed cheese slices!!!

Good fun and worth a visit for the amazing entertainment.

“I expected so much more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

Went there for breakfast and it was such a disappointment. The lox and bagel were great but the eggs, etc. were mediocre. If you're in the neighborhood, fine. But don't make a special trip.

“A real gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

This is a little cafe/deli bar serving all day. We went for a late breakfast. The food was really nice and American Diner quality. But the real gem is the fact that the waiter and waitresses are all budding broadway singers. During breakfast we heard a good dozen songs sung live by our waiting staff. Some of them had really amazing voices that made you stop in your tracks transfixed by the quality of the performance.

To me, this is a must. I will definitely go back on my next visit to New York
