“Awful place”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Served by an awful waitress who barked orders at us and was very impatient. Made to feel very rushed in ordering and we felt as though we had to eat quickly as they needed the table. Hardly any choice on the menu. Never offered a refill. Told when our bill (very expensive place too) was given to us that it didnt include a tip. I really really really dislike people saying this. I think its extremely rude. I tip very well normally. Well above the 18% recommended tip but this awful woman got next to nothing. Avoid the place. Go a bit further up the 7th avenue on your left to La Parisienne coffee house. Much more relaxed, better service and more choice.

“Wellington Park Cafe”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

I'm not sure if there is more than one Park Cafe, but our hotel, the Wellington, has a Park Cafe. We had breakfast there. It was o.k. We would go there again but nothing fancy. Prices are reasonable.

“Good food, great value - a "well oiled machine"”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

This restaurant - a cut above a diner - is in the ground floor of The Wellington Hotel. It is on the corner of 7th Avenue and 55th Street. It has been there for years, and we have eaten there for years. Service is quick, portions are large, and prices are NYC reasonable. The staff is efficient and friendly. The kitchen is super fast. We usuallly eat breakfast there, but have also done lunch and super - and never disappointed. I think many of the staff have been there for years, so it really is a "well oilied machine'.

“Excellant breakfasts”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This cafe / restaurant sits at street level at the front of the Wellington Hotel in New York.
The breakfasts are superb with a great selection from the menu. You can mix and match such as pancakes with bacon, ham ,eggs, have pancakes with everything or just on their own, really tasty and filling!
May have to queue to be seated but usually seated quickly, unlimited tea and coffee, water.
Service is quick and efficient and to say they are so busy the staff are friendly and happy to help and you are not rushed.
Open all day and in the evenings with a full restaurant menus.
Excellant value for money
