The prices were not bad for NYC. I would say mid-range. This is a very casual, diner type place. The service and food were both good. All four of us enjoyed our breakfast. We would definitely return to this place in the future.

The Morning Star Cafe is a great old school diner. I had breakfast here a few times on a recent visit and I would go back again. The portions were good size and the food was typical diner, comfort food.

I was pleasantly surprised with the portion size of the food. Especially with prices not being any higher than any other breakfast place. My wife got an omelet and it was huge. I got a grilled cheese and it was delicious!

Found this place via Tripadvisor. Tried it, Loved it! Excellent food, superb portions. The 3 egg omelette was actually good for two in our case. The omelettes and pancakes were fabulous in particular. We went there for breakfast 3 days in a row. Highly recommend.

Found this place on Tripadvisor and it was only a couple of blocks from our hotel off Times Sq. The place was busy and bustling and I thought we'd hit upon a traditional American diner. The food was ok and they were very willing to...More
