This is a local only chain with multiple locations. Food was diner food, but high quality and good size portions. We had the Koogle, Tuna Melts and Cheese cake. All were good quality, good portion size efforts. I would go again.

Did not enjoy this place at all - salad was a plate of lettuce with a couple of bits of avocado and hash was a plate of grease. Very overpriced - could not get out of there fast enough!

My daughter picked this place from the looks of the exterior. I went with it, but was iffy. I am so glad we did. The burgers were amazing. The service was great and the atmosphere was nice.

Perfect pancakes, french toasts and a very tasty regular coffee( difficult to find in US ). The butter is also tasty and creamy and the service excellent. Not very cheap, but worth.

...and way overpriced. Don’t fall for the hype. Try Bagel Haven or something similar for much better food.

What a fascinating place this was, although the air conditioning did make it on the cold side. The food was lovely and the service was great, really entertaining place and very authentic.

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

Seriously, if you're concerned about the price of a corn beef sandwich, you may want to choose another destination besides NYC.
