Food Ok, but service is garbage and they only accept cash. The only good thing is that it stays open until late night and 14 hours on weekends

Really only went for the Seinfeld link. Fun to see the memorabilia, especially the Kramer painting. Food was decent but could get what we had at a hundred diners throughout Manhattan.

We are big fans of Seinfeld so when in New York we had to eat here. The place is clean and the service was very good. The food wasn't excellent but good enough for a meal. Not sure if I would go back but it was an experience to have!

It was a lot of food and hot! Important that food is hot. Pot roast sandwich and mashed potatoes were good.

Seriously, I live in the neighborhood and we all know not to eat there. We're talking cafeteria level food for 3 times the price. I would love it if this iconic facade had a decent meal inside, but it doesn't, so don't eat there.

We went today and they have everything from breakfast to lunch to dinner. Two of us had breakfast and I had the bacon lettuce and tomato. We all enjoyed our meals. It was fun to see all the pics. Of Seinfeld. I would put this on my to do list if I was you.

We were hungry when we arrived just before midday and had shakes with a full breakfast of pancakes, bacon, sausage and extra toast.....the pancakes were the lightest and fluffiest I've ever had and the maple syrup with them was lovely. Great service, they are no frills here but rely on fab food to make you smile. Would definitely go back... More

Not a big fan of Seinfeld, but did recognize the place. Inside the place is overflowing with great food and friendly vibes. Service was great as well. Students, locals, a couple musicians and a bunch of tourists all enjoying breakfast together. Nice.

For the Seinfeld fans! The food beyond great! The service even better! It was a privilege to dine at such a remarkable place. I see why the college kids love it so much!
