I met a group here on a Sunday around 12:00pm. This was a good time to arrive (earlier is better too). We waited about 15-20 minutes for a table. You won't be seated until everyone arrives. It's a small cozy restaurant (common in NY) where the staff is friendly and the menu has an ample variety of options. Afterward you... More

Seated promptly. Good food in reasonable portions. Tables a bit small for all the plates etc. The eggs in purgatory seemed like more cheese than egg, a bit much even though we like cheese.

We stopped in unexpected and found this to be just a marvelous breakfast option. The items all have a Belgian style from the eggs to the waffles and desserts. The coffee was just excellent. The staff were attentive and very polite.

My daughter wanted to eat breakfast here for some time and yesterday we finally made it. A nice, quaint restaurant that serves delicious food. The menu is one page with daily specials written on a chalk board. Plenty of selections and variety. The servers were welcoming and friendly along with a clean environment. I will judge a restaurant by the... More

Don't let the front diner-kitchen counter look and feel stop you from going into the rustic restaurant area. Good coffee, small but good breakfast menu and friendly service. Often relatively empty so a good alternative to the sometimes packed Union Square restaurants down the street.

Belgian trappist bier and good food. I always eat here when I visit friends in Kipps Bay. They have a fine selection of beers from Europe and the food is always hearty and tasty.

So I didn't get to come here for brunch but stopped by in the evening while waiting for a spot at the bar next doors. They have a happy hour for drinks from 3 to 7pm. Nice ambiance inside, loved the decor. Amazing selection of tripels, prices are anywhere from 8 to 15$ for a beer and 13$ for cocktails.... More

The interior is cozy and on the tighter side, with lighting that was a little too dim at times. Food was pretty good overall - on the richer/heavier side, but expected with this type of bistro. My husband had the mussels, which came in a nice large portion. Prices are a little steep for the setting/vibe of the place. Wish... More

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighbourhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighbourhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being the home of a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
