Nice NY diner with reasonable prices, it's handy for the Cooper Hewlett, Guggenheim and Metropolitan Museum, but on 3rd Avenue which feels to me more like 'real' New York with 'real' people (so not just tourists) and it means you get to stroll across Park...More

We enjoyed a very nice breakfast at the Stargate Diner. Food was tasty and price was reasonable. Atmosphere was more like a family restaurant than a stand-alone diner in the South.

We had omelettes after a run in Central Park. Nice neighborhood place with better flavors than average. Very tasty and appropriately spicey potatoes to accompany. Prices reasonable. Service fine. Not sure why its named stargate??

Do you want a BLT? A grilled cheese sandwich? Bacon and eggs? Stargate isn't fine dining, but it's a cheery place that meets the basic food requirements of New Yorkers as we go on our appointed rounds.
