Just had a delicious meal, welcomed by friendly staff and quickly seated with drinks and menus. Calamari starter was tasty, I had the pesto pasta which was fabulous and my husband had the burger which he said was good. Very attentive staff also asking if we were ok and if we needed more drinks. We were so full but squeezed... More

Stopped here in a rush before a show. The place was busy but we were seated right away. Waiters & busboys were friendly and very attentive. Always refilling drinks. Decent wine list for a diner. The food also arrived very fast and was good. I recommend the portobello burger. I'd definitely return. Prices were fair as well. Huge menu.

You can get any of the standards here, eggs, pancakes, french toast, omelettes, etc. Service was fast and efficient. We enjoyed a couple of meals here during our stay at the neighboring hotel. Solid option!

What a nice stumble upon in the Upper East Side. Not far from the museums, but miles away in spirit from the madness around you. It was like pulling into a diner in any small town. The owner of the place was present and making sure everyone had what they needed. Wish we had a place like this in my... More

We ate here twice in our short stay for a rock show at the Beacon Theater just a few doors down. The Turkey here is superlative in any of it's menufications on the very comprehensive Viand dining chart. Even sampled the Meat Loaf plater, a basic dish but nonetheless excellent. Location is fine tuned also being next to the Hotel... More

We ate here several times during our stay. Breakfasts were varied and tasty. The waitress even remembered us on our second visit! Dinner was also exceptionally good one evening with and Italian chicken dish and a shrimp and pasta dish.

We stayed at the Beacon Hotel which is next door to this café. We had breakfast there 3 times and was excellent each time. The omelettes are amazing you can choose almost anything you like to have in them, stuck for choice. Good food good coffee good staff and excellent location

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
