Fantastic coffee. Great breakfast food. Pancakes were amazing, avocado toast was amazing. Friendly service. If I lived here I would eat here all the time. Also serving mimosas and espresso cocktails if that’s your jam.

It was well worth the trip from our hotel for this great cafe. Very good coffee and excellent food. Reasonably priced and awesome service from the host through to the waitress. Definitely recommend and will go back!

Visiting NYC after long time, glad that we found this place on our first day. Will get busy during lunch hour, schedule an extra half hour of wait times. We ordered from the weekend brunch and from the weekday menu the day after. Once seated,...the staff was quick to take orders and deliver. The coffee and food is freshly made and one can smell the aroma and taste the fresh ingredients. Must visit if you are near the Grand Central Terminal area.More

Excellent food Excellent service Every time. Be prepared for moderate wait times. It is popular, but worth it! Get the green eggs and a blueberry scone. Truly excellent.

The food and coffee were enjoyable, but my overall dining experience was quite disappointing. I visited on the Friday morning before Christmas Eve, and as I dined alone, the host seated me at the communal counter near the entrance. Brianni, the initial waitress who took...my order, provided excellent recommendations for dishes. However, my experience took a downturn when she was transferred to the take-out order section before my meal arrived. The newly assigned waiter who took over did not check in on my experience, only approaching me to present the check 46 minutes after I entered the restaurant. When I requested a few more minutes before settling the bill, he insisted he had already granted me a one-minute courtesy and pointed out that I had spent 45 minutes in the restaurant. He stated that if I didn't place additional orders, I needed to pay and leave. I spent approximately $30 per person on my breakfast, while the two pairs sitting next to me at the same countertop only ordered coffees. Furthermore, the pair to my right, who arrived earlier than me, only ordered a coffee during their stay. It's perplexing that despite spending significantly less (under $10), they were allowed to stay longer than me. The only plausible explanation seems to be that I am Asian, while most of the other patrons were White, even though the waiter himself was not. Disappointed with the discriminatory treatment, I chose not to tip the waiter who failed to attend to my dining needs. Instead, I tipped Brianni, the original waitress, who deserved it for her excellent service. Before leaving, I inquired about the typical turnover time for a table in the restaurant, and she mentioned it is usually about 1.5 hours. This was the worst dining experience I've ever had, and it seems the behavior of the newly assigned waiter was discriminatory.More

Servers very pleasant, great service and with a smile. We were seated without a reservation within 10 minutes. We waited around 15 minutes for our food which tasted great. We ordered pancakes and the vanilla yoghurt Creme brule with granola. Both were tasty, very well...presented and enjoyed throughly.More

It's quite busy. Wait is somewhere around a half hour. Get on a waitlist to sit at the front counter on the right. Counters are part of the waitlist as well. Order at the counter in the middle if it's to go. We decided to...take the food to go and eat back at the hotel instead of waiting for a table. We ordered the Smash, The Muse, vanilla bean panna cotta and Green eggs and Damn and an oat milk latte. $77.30. Food was out after 25 minutes or so, same with the coffee. The coffee had to be remade, was made with whole milk and not the oat milk as ordered. The green eggs and Damn was okay. It’s a green mean omelet, more of a novelty order. The panna cotta was quite good. Granola and berries were really good with it. The muse was just okay. I think this might be better warmed for me. It tasted cold and mushy and lack luster. The smash was okay, the bread was crunchy and yummy. I think it could use more oomph as the handful of red pepper flakes doesn’t add much to it. It just seemed too plain.More

I went to their other cafe back in August when I was in the city for US Open tennis because the flat white was so good ! We visited the bigger cafe twice on this visit. Despite having to queue outside for a table it...was well worth it. Bright, attentive and engaging young staff, great coffee and a varied and delicious menu.More

I had breakfast two days running in Little Collins. The cappuccinos were pretty decent and the basil/spinach omelette (green eggs ‘n’ damn) was delicious. Service was rapid and friendly, and the place had a nice feel to it. Worth a visit.
