Had a breakfast meeting at this place and it was quite good. I had a NY Bagel which was good. Wi-Fi worked as supposed too.

Average Cafe. Spacious area but tight seating and small tables. Manhattan clam chowder had very very few small shreds of clams. Chicken fajitas were tough.

We got right in here for brunch. Their omelettes were great! I had the spinach/feta omelette and it was great. The bread was wonderful and it came with a small salad! A wonderful server! I know it's a chain, but the food is really good.

Searching for refuge after a busy day in NYC. Found this wonderful oasis. Great coffee. Nice assortment of eats. Friendly service. Willing to go the extra mile. While my wife and I were there, the place was invaded by thirty Japanese children who were performing across the street at Carnegie Hall. The staff bent over backwards under tight time constraints...

We were burned once for breakfast in our midtown hotel ($60 for granola and yogurt for two), so we tried this cafe across from Carnegie Hall, and we were well rewarded. Our $60 breakfast here included eggs, bacon, toast, milk, coffee, served by a waitress who was personable without being intrusive and in a NYC setting. Ask for a window... More

Undrinkable latte, stale pastry and the staff was not interested, not helpful and rude. There is no shortage of similar café/bakeries in NYC; apparently competition is of no concern to management. As for prospective customers, continue walking to a nearby competitor.

Very comfortable cafe. The cappuccinos r.delicious. The French toast is good, but a little too sweet. The scones are fairly authentic. Prices r typical for the city. Service is friendly and efficient. Can eat in or take out.

This cafe is around the corner from the Essex House, convenient location for breakfast. While in New York City I had breakfast at this cafe every morning. They have a nice selection and service is quick.

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.
