My wife and I dropped in for breakfast. Liked the outdoor seating but thought the food horribly overpriced and uninspired.$22 for one coffee, one bagel ,and one muffin is excessive even by NYC standards! There are restaurants within a few steps from Lindy's where you can get 2 full breakfasts for the same price. Do yourself a favor and skip Lindy's. It no longer is what it used to be.

Our 1st day in NYC we wanted to have a real american breakfast. However we were slightly surprised to see the prices on the menu. This is really too expensive for what you get. Just walk down the street for more reasonable breakfast options.

From the rude hostess to the awful service & overpriced terrible food, just skip this place. We went there for breakfast as we were staying next store & it was a huge waste of time & money. There are plenty of other dining options within walking distance so just keep walking when you go by this dump.

This was probably the worst place we ate on our 5 day trip to NY. The staff were underwhelming, not very attentive for drinks or cleaning away plates. I had pancakes and bacon (which I had to order separately as it's not on the menu?) and boyfriend had blueberry waffles, neither of which were particularly memorable. It was also pretty expensive in comparison to similar chains (Applebys, TGIs) where we also ate.

We ate breakfast here because it was convenient to the hotel. Way overpriced, paid $30 for oatmeal, side of 2 small pancakes, and a coffee. Not sure what a draw would be here, maybe cheesecake?
