The nicest thing about this place is that people from the neighborhood come here and not precious minions seeking celebrity salvation. Also you don't need to stand on line endlessly watching people watch their phones while you grab breakfast. There's power in being reliable and...More

This diner is a few blocks from Central Park, and where the Claremont Riding Academy used to be. I liked the egg salad sandwich as an entrée, and a piece of strawberry shortcake for dessert.

How much do I love this place? Hard to put a number on it. They have the quickest service, they can make any kind of eggs you want, and the coffee is strong. If you don't want to waste your whole day in a restaurant...More
