Cute place across from BMCC. Good food with fast service and friendly wait staff. Plenty of options and plenty of seating. Prices reasonable

Our doorman at the Conrad hotel recomeended us to try Gee Whiz for breakfast and we are so glad that he did! We had the most amazing omelettes which totally filled us up for the rest of the day. The decor was pretty outrageous all dressed up for Halloween and lots to look at. We would definitely go back here again if we return to New York and stay in the same area.

This is my favorite diner in Manhattan. Their service is great and their food is delicious. I have been to many diners and none of them can top this one. I've had their paninis, pastas, salads, wraps, breakfasts, just about everything. The atmosphere is great.. they decorate their seating area every holiday season. They also give complimentary a appetizer. There is no doubt I will come back again and again.

We had breakfast here, eggs sunny side, crispy bacon and potatoes, the basic diner breakfast. Very good it was, and good value too. The Americans get the service angle just right in diners like this. It is all very traditional, the booths, the ice water and the snappy service. We look for places like this to begin our day.

It is as much about time travel as anything else, as it has been done this way for 100 years, and the prices can't have changed much in that time, as it all feels very good value.

The only beef I have is that the Yanks don't know that tea in a pot is the only way - a tea bag and a cup of nearly boiling water is not the way to make a proper breakfast cuppa.

We found this place by pure chance, we were standing on a street corner looking at a map for a restaurant when a New Yorker stops, asks what we were looking for, he then recommends this place which was only a few blocks away. Two adults one teenager and a toddler all left very happy, food was good, service was great and the price was fantastic. Definitely one of the best value meals we had in our 3 days in New York.
