We had one lunch and one breakfast during our stay. Burgers one time and omelette the other. Portion sizes were large, service good, quick and efficient. I thought prices were average for NYC.

We had breakfast here on a few mornings of our holiday. The food was really good and we were served quickly. The diner is very popular and can get really busy in the morning but there are plenty of tables. Staff were pleasant and efficient.

Loved this place, not cheap but then New York isn't cheap. Good variety of meals and drinks. Suits families. Fantastic staff, can't praise them enough.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

It's a big diner, we never needed any reservations, and there was never a wait for a table.
