We were staying nearby at the Hudon Hotel & had breakfasts here on 3 of the 5 mornings. We tried a couple of places nearby but kept coming back to this one. Great choices on the menu & pleasant staff.

For breakfast, service slow and scrambled eggs were not really scrambled but omelet like. Real veggie omelet was quite good. Coffee not very good and toast buttered with a toothpick! Better places on 9th ave.

Came to Morning Star after finishing a 5 day conference in NYC. I've been traveling to NYC at least once or twice a year for the last 10 years for leisure or business and I've eaten in so many diners throughout. Morning Star is one of the best diners and places to eat. I had the Cypriot breakfast without the... More

I had heard that this was a great place for breakfast for those staying in the area, so I gave it a try one morning. The restaurant is popular, clean, and located on the corner of 57th St. and 9th Ave., so you can sit at a table and watch the world go by. I ordered a western omelet with... More

Found this small little place on a morning stroll! It was packed at 11 am. We were seated immediately. Our server did take 15 minutes to come over for our order, but it was a busy time. The food was delicious and fresh and budget friendly, We ordered the three egg omellettes and French toast and everything was prepared to... More

A brilliant breakfast! None of the pomp and ceremony of the main streets just good honest excellent food served in a very friendly and welcoming establishment. A little escapism from the madness of NYC

good food and service overall. Nothing wow buts serves its purpose as a decent restaurant. Burger was good ( the burgers I got in new York tended to have a somewhat greasy sort of feel in my mouth, this one had that grilled feel. Anyway, an ok place as I already stated.

Thank rod905

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.
