We ate breakfast here one morning, and the food was pretty good and the service was pretty fast. They had a group of British students coming through and eating breakfast there from a reduced menu, so seating was a bit hard to come by. There was quite a queue waiting for tables at one point. That having been said, they were out with the food pretty quick, the food was well-prepared although not remarkably good, and the price was right.

My date is correcting me as I read this review out to him. He thought his lox Benedict was really good. I enjoyed my French toast, but wasn't amazed by it.

Ordered meatloaf special and broiled chicken special. Both came with soup and vegetables. Chicken matzah ball soup was delicious. Meatloaf was three large pieces with mushroom gravy. Chicken was done just like I ordered it. Not expensive especially for New York City.

Super traditional american breakfast. My boys loved ordering their eggs 'over easy'. Good french toast and coffee. Friendly and efficient.

Stumbled upon this diner and must say, it was a good find! Service was good and the meal was too. Was a little disappointed with the veal dinner.. Wasn't cooked all the way, nor did they ask how we wanted it cooked. Fettuccine was excellent, definitely would get again. A bit surprised when the check came, everything was reasonably priced, but the 'special' of the day was double the cost of the average meal. (And probably wouldn't even have cared if it were cooked the way we wanted it). Overall, it was a great find and would return again.

Went for breakfast twice in a 5 day stay. Excellent service and great food. If you are looking for a traditional New York diner experience, this is the place.
