I stopped by on a Thursday morning in search of brunch with a friend while attending a conference at Columbia. We were both quite pleased. The setting is both charming and laid back, with decor that is sure to make you smile, super friendly staff and a menu that has something for every taste. I ordered a garden omelet and... More

Had breakfast there this morning. The table was visibly dirty, the dining area unswept. The food was tasteless and served in chipped, cracked plates, and there was hair in the breakfast sandwich. Absolutely unacceptable!! The waitress was very kind, so I crumpled my napkin in the plate, paid the bill and walked out without distressing her. Do not make the... More

A friend and I stumbled onto this place when looking for somewhere to have breakfast. We walked in and were immediately greeted by the staff. When we were seated someone was right there to take our drink orders. It was a bit of a wait for the food but it was absolutely delicious and very filling. I couldn't even finish... More

The decor is adorable with a touch of kitsch. The service was wonderful: our server was John and the manager was Rebecca - - both were warm, friendly,... More

Looking for old fashioned counter diner with modern great food this is for you. You enter to see 1950s counter but go around back to the tables. Great breakfast friendly service

This is the classic diner go-to in Morningside Heights. If you can get past the cons of noise and service, you will be in breakfast nirvana. For the pros and cons, the pros are their décor and polka dot theme palace of kitsch. There is also a good variety of tasty of menu items from savory to sweet. For their... More

Many options available and food is delicious! The seating is pretty cramped, and they seem understaffed so service is on the slower staff, but the food makes up for it.

Very crowded little lunch spot. We were quickly seated and the service was really fast. Our waitress was welcoming and offered several suggestions. My colleague and I both had the half kitchwich (chicken salad that day) and clam chowder. It was really good on a cold day. The cakes looked amazing when we came in the door - too bad... More
