“Good Choice for Breakfast”
Reviewed June 12, 2008

We ate here in early June 2008. Located on 2nd Avenue near 53rd Street. Good breakfast (eggs and bacon, etc.) for a reasonable price (by NYC standards). The cafe was busy but we didn't have difficulty getting seated. Staff was very friendly.

“Fantastic Breakfast”
Reviewed March 3, 2007

This place is a gem in New York City. It was always busy, we always seemed to get the last seats available! The staff were friendly and smiling, and the service was quick.

We had Eggs Benedict - toasted english muffins with poached eggs, canadian bacon and hollandaise sauce - delicious! and American pancakes with maple syrup - divine!

Very reasonably priced, great choice. The fresh fruits looked gorgeous. We also visited for lunch and had burgers and fries (well, you have to sometimes!) and they were great! Hot and tasty.

We look forward to visiting again on our next trip to NYC.
