I met my friend here for brunch on a Saturday. It was REALLY packed. She beat me there and sat at the bar. By the time I arrived, it was clear we were going to have to wait for a while but we got lucky and there was another seat at the bar for me. We decided to just sit... More

Stopped in for a breakfast meeting with a friend yesterday and was floored by the prices. It was freezing so we decided to go for it. My omelette was $12 and coffee was I believe $6- my friend had eggs and toast that was the same price. It was very good mind you but really?? A dozen eggs are $3!... More

Managed to get a seat no problem, but shortly after there was a large queue forming. We ordered 2 coffees, my partner ordered eggs two ways and I ordered the chocolate chip pancakes with coconut. These were amazing! The best part was they came with strawberry butter - something I had never even heard of, but it was delicious! Definitely... More

If you are looking for country Vermont dining in the upper west side, follow the cows and quilted blankets to Good Enough to Eat. Great comfort food from scratch and a country feel are the highlights. Steel cut oatmeal with Canadian syrup with fresh bread to dip into it was a highlight. Great for breakfast with kids.

My family and I waited for almost 40 minutes outside to sit for lunch. Granted there was no line when we left. Food was good, loved the BLT. Slightly cramp accommodations. Large families will be a challenge but they will do their best.

I went to Good Enough To Eat last week for dinner with a group of friends. They have a great room in the back which accommodates some 12 people. We shared a number of dishes from their all-day menu - including their signature buttermilk pancakes, the best thick cut bacon I've ever had and amazingly flavorful omelettes. To top off... More

I went to Good Enough to Eat with my colleagues after work. I had a really good time and I ate such delicious dishes. First, I ordered a wonderful cocktail named “Ginger Margarita”; a nice interpretation of the traditional Margarita. It was sweet and acid in the same time thanks to the lemon and ginger flavor. Then, we decided to... More

The other day, I went for diner to Good Enough to Eat with my colleagues for an afterwork party. I had the pleasure to taste a selection of the main specialty dishes of the restaurant: it was kind of a shareable food situation which was fun! I particularly enjoyed the turkey accompanied with stuffing and cranberry sauce, a very seasonal... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
