Definitely worth the experience. Food tasted fresh made. The french toast was very good as was the BBC omelette. Coffee was very good. Prices were reasonable and service friendly but a little slow.

Had breakfast food at 2 pm on a Monday. It was awful. Potatoes too hard to bite in to, dried out left over toast, cold coffee. How can you ruin breakfast ?? Have a smelly bathroom. We won't be back. Sorry.

This is a gem! A traditional NY diner that did great breakfast/brunch. We ate here four mornings out of five on a recent NY trip. It's a popular spot so get there early especially at weekends.

Good breakfast options, huge portions. You better be hungry! Efficient service. The place looks like it could do with a good cleaning.

We had breakfast here a few times during our stay in New York City. A wide variety on the menu with some good offers available. Staff extremely friendly and overall good service. Very busy in mornings but no problem getting a table. Would definitely recommend.

While I love the simple but varied offerings at reasonable prices that diners provide, you do want the food to be good and "comforting", bringing back memories of Mom's cooking on her best days. The "Thanksgiving Everyday" option I chose had turkey that was real...More

Dress code is as you are very informal it's a diner not a formal type restaurant . Think you can make reservation and it's open all day if I remember rightly
