We dined here twice, once for a late breakfast and the other time was an early dinner before we went to a show. Both times the food was well presented and good size serves. Would recommend for a quick bite at reasonable prices.

Enticed by a display cabinet full of delicious looking sandwiches and sweet, we stopped here for a late lunch. The place was practically empty (should have been our first clue?). We were seated immediately and drink orders taken. The wait for the order (and, subsequently, the check) were extraordinarily long for a place that had few customers. The food itself,... More

Had breakfast here 5 times during our stay in NYC. Consistently good service and great food. We did visit other cafes, but kept coming back. Good value for money were the breakfast wraps, served with a fruit bowl and bottomless coffee. $9.95 My wife had a crepe and she said it 'exceeded expectations'. Free WiFi, just ask them for a...

Found this place while trying to get on the subway and decided to walk in before heading downtown for site seeing. Happy we did. It was perfect for the fast breakfast we were looking for. Yummy bagels, croissants and delicious bold coffee. Did the trick.

Want breakfast? Go, it is worth it. In the mood for just coffee and something sweet? Go they have an extensive 'I just want something sweet' section.

I love this location because it is close to my hotel. You can get 2 breakfasts and drinks for under $20. While it took a couple of minutes to get a table on a weekend morning because they were so busy, they were able to get us sat quite fast. The tables were clean, the staff was friendly and the...

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.
