This is where you go for a super NY breakfast experience. You won't have to wait too long even on a busy Easter weekend which is when we visited. We loved the food, service and atmosphere so much we came back for a 2nd time during our Easter weekend NY visit from Dallas.

We used this twice in this trip to New York. So popular you usually have to queue, but not for long. We had Pancakes which were light and fluffy. I had poached eggs with sausage as well which was perfect. These guys are friendly and efficient and are also clean freaks. I saw someone spill some orange juice on the... More

We ate here twice, once on an evening and once a lunchtime. The restaurant is very clean and also probably the cheapest place we found to eat but the food was very nice, fresh & cooked to perfection. The staff were friendly and not pushy in any way. Big thumbs up from me.

Got in quick. Could tell this guy means business. Rat-a-tat-tat ordering. Food out in probably 5 minutes. Good, decent diner fare. Nothing to write home about, but worth a decent mention here.

Stopped in for a quick breakfast. Had good food, good service, good people watching. I had an omelet with a side of fruit. My partner had Pancakes with some delicious bacon. We would definitely go back.

Loved every single bit of this! Plain great breakfast. Lots of omelette choices, great service, great atmosphere and a good coffee. This got us started really well for a busy day in the Big Apple.

Our hotel recommended this place for breakfast after we arrived on a red eye. The food was so bland and tasteless and overpriced. On a positive note, the service was good.

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.
