“Classic NYC Diner”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Holy cow ... these guys are fast! I don't know how those cooks do what they do as fast as they do it, but awesome! Small diner, super friendly service and lightning fast. We had a bagel with a schmear of cream cheese, my boyfriend had the lox eggs benedict, which he loved. Great location, felt like a local. Wish I lived in the neighborhood so I could stop by all the time :)

“CHOCOLATE CHIP PANCAKE! OM NOM!”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

I visited in March 2012 and continued to go for Breakfast 3 times in one week on my stay, my Boyfriend loved their eggs and bacon with toast and I had a personal preference for their Chocolate Chip Pancakes which were easily the best thing on the planet!

Wide menu, friendly staff and 100% value for money we couldn't believe all that food came to only $18!!!

One downside is the toilet facility which can be a bit tricky to lock correctly and it is a bit worrying that someone might burst in on you if you have locked it incorrectly, but that has no effect on the great service and food they provide!

“Great Service”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

This is a great wee diner which is open 24hrs. We went for breakfast one day and had to go back the next it was so good. Service is quick, staff are super friendly and food is good.

“Top quality meals at reasonably price.”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

Found this cafe/restaurant having stayed in Affinia 50 just around the corner.

Started with breakfast and enjoyed so much return for dinner with our 3 kids who also loved the place.

Very friendly staff who would fill up soda and coffee as soon as cup/glass is empty. The place is basic, nothing fancy but the food is exceptional. Would highly recommend.
