I had breakfast here 4 times during my stay at The New Yorker. The food is fast, the service is really good and the food is pretty good. Price is reasonably.. not super cheap but portion size is pretty good. I would definitely return.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
