This was a good place to grab a quick bite to eat. Kid friendly. But they have cocktails for the adults. We got sandwiches and breakfast for dinner. The service was quick and friendly. Near the August Wilson theatre. I would go again.

We came here for breakfast one morning and the food was fantastic. Lovely restaurant that seems to be family run. Great selection and reasonably priced. Will definitely be back!

Very close to Novotel and the theatre where Jersey Boys is performed. They are open 24 hours a day and we ate there twice for breakfast and once for dinner. At night, a lot of people go there after seeing one of the plays at nearby theatres. They have a delivery service. Don’t be scared off by lines. They somehow... More

Really good food, the omelette and pancakes are delicious. The French onion soup and the coffee is perfect for snowy days.

My son and I grabbed a quick bite to eat here after a show. He got a deluxe cheeseburger that he said was great and I enjoyed my matzo ball soup and turkey club. Big portions, lots of fries. Wish we could have ordered dessert but we were both full!

My wife and I had afternoon tea there during the week leading up to Christmas. The coffee was tasty and the Cheesecake was the best I've eaten. To top off the afternoon, the Manageress gave us a cup full of the greatest tasting mint lollies on the planet. They are available for all restaurant guests and one is reminded to... More

This is a classic New York diner -- a vast menu, quick service, cheap prices. The food simple and fresh, and portions are ample. It's just a few blocks from Broadway, but it has more of a local-joint feel to it than places like Ellen's Stardust Diner (which I like, don't get me wrong!) I had breakfast here at 2... More

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.
