“A great greasy-spoon”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

This was a great little cafe, a good greasy-spoon being hard to find. They were very busy but the waiters moved pretty fast and the little kitchen kept up very well.

Breakfast menu had options for everyone and a great selection omlettes. Portions were very good with unlimited coffee and the prices were very cheap.

I would definately go back again when in the area!

“Great start to the day”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

The food choices on the menu were plentiful. The breakfast portions were large and delicious. Great diner in Midtown Manhattan that makes you feel like you are somewhere else. We came back a second day on our trip because we liked it.

“Breakfast of champions!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Like many earlier reviews this diner became our go-to breakfast place during a week long work trip. We were staying in a glitzy hotel on Lexington where a basic in-room breakfast cost $50, so it was a no-brainer to find some comfort food round the corner.

The service is friendly and fast, without feeling rushed and them wanting to get you out for the next customer. The food of course is the star and reason we went back several times - tasty, perfect portion size and great coffee.

See you next time!

Came in for a late dinner. The chicken wrap on whole wheat was plentiful. Chocolate cake was delicious.
