Friendly staff, went once in the morning to grab a drink, and came back in the afternoon and the cashier remembered me - that's great customer service!.

Discovered Isadora's during a recent stay at the Omni Berkshire hotel. LOVED the food and especially the prices. Helped this Kansas gal stay within her travel per diem. You'll find everything from breakfast cooked to order to roasted chicken to New York pizza to designer cupcakes. I ate breakfast, lunch and dinner there during my stay.

We visited New York just before Christmas and stayed straight opposite at the Omni Berkshire Hotel. Isadora's Café was fantastic we went there every morning for Breakfast and coffee. The staff are so very welcoming, polite and you are served with a smile!! I recommend the egg, sausage & cheese on a roll. Look forward to seeing you all again... More

Service is friendly and quick. Food is typical of the lower order of deli/self service places in Manhattan.

We stayed in the hotel across from Isadoras and used it many times for lunch or snacks. They had a great selection and it didn't get too busy.

We found this little gem of a cafe quite by accident and returned 5 times out of our 6 night holiday. There was so much choice for both adults and children. We had pancakes, omelettes, pizza, salmon, pork steaks, wraps and muffins, during the different visits of course. The portions are ample and the prices are very reasonable. A brilliant... More

Across from our Omni Hotel, I had planned to visit during our stay, but saw they were open on Christmas Day, didn't think they would be, so went then as we needed a quick breakfast before ice skating. The menu is vast, they do basically everything, you order off pics on the wall, we both had breakfast, egg, hash browns... More

Fast, friendly, and complete. Isadora's gets you in and out in a hurry without being unfriendly. Good for a quick meal on the go in midtown.

The quaint cafe is across the street from the Omni Berkshire where we stayed. We quickly discovered this as the place to eat for anything quick and easy. We had breakfast and coffee throughout our stay here.

What a treat to find when staying at the Omni Berkshire. We only visited on our last day in the city, but we will go back! Breakfast was delicious, well priced (for NYC), and tons of options! Lunch options looked great too.

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.
