This cafe was close to our hotel and is right by the subway entrance. We visited twice during our trip for breakfast and I wish we could have gone back for lunch, they had some delicious looking options for salads, quinoa bowls and pasta. For breakfast, the first morning we did wraps (choice of 3 fillings plus eggs). Delicious and... More

Whilst having a general wander round, we both decided we were a bit peckish, but not out-and-out hungry. Seeing the brunch specials sign we went in here, and both chose the egg, cheese and bacon sandwich, along with a cappuccino each and a bottle of juice to eat-in. The food arrived quickly, and it's a good job we weren't hugely... More

This place has a nice selection for a no hassle breakfast - omelets, breakfast sandwiches and traditional eggs, bacon and toast. A great price and friendly service.

Close to our hotel, we popped into Teleon for a light supper quite late on our first full day in the City when the Cafe was fairly quiet. Friendly and welcoming staff and an excellent menu at fair prices. Having discovered there were open on Thanksgiving Day, we returned after the Parade, at which stage the building was packed. Nevertheless,... More

Just a street away from the banal and very overpriced eateries in the tourist area of Times Square, this deli style cafe makes and sells delicious fresh and reasonably priced food to eat in or take out. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and clearly take pride in their food with the cooking/preparation counter in full customer view. I had... 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.
