Recently stayed in times square on a family vacation, there was 8 of us needless to say we got up late and missed breakfast at the hotel! The concierge told us about Galaxy stating it was the best breakfast around! And within walking distance with the kids. The employees were very welcoming, and service was quick. We pretty much all...

Great value for money and fast service. The lemonade is home made and is worth going in just for that! The food was good and large servings. Would go back again for casual dining

We stayed in New York the first week of march for 1 week. We had breakfast at galaxy diner 4 out of 6 mornings, even though we had to walk several blocks to get there. Great food great service at a lot less cost than many other places. Would definitely go back if visited New York again

A comfy place for very casual dining. The fare is standard, the service is attentive, and you can dash in and out or linger awhile over your meal in the comfortable seating with a glass of beer and wine. Caters to a mix of tourists and locals.

First stop in and we loved it! Service is fantastic as are most diners operated by Greeks. Nice brunch menu and the regular menu has great selection. My wife had a huge Greek salad and I went for a simple scrambled egg platter. I was disappointed that they didn't have raisin toast and they would not scramble the eggs with... More

Well this is the place for you. Towards the end of your vacation if you find you spent too much money on souvenirs head to the Galaxy Diner. Very good food at very reasonable prices. We were there for breakfast and it was filling and cheap. I recommend the Creamsicle Shake, yum-yum. TIP: watch the charges on your bill. It... More

Enjoyed delicious, hot coffee while waiting for breakfast to go. Friendly staff and menu looked great. We only had breakfast but would make a point to go back if we had more time in NYC.

We got breakfast take-out and the staff could not have been more accommodating and attentive. The food coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled awesome ... Including the fresh fruit and granola. Wish we had time to go back and eat in the restaurant ... Maybe next trip.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
