We were tempted by the cakes on our walk back from the piers to the main shops and it was a good value for money option rather than a Macy's cheesecake pit stop. A good size diner we didn't need to wait long and the service was fast. We watched lots of food options arrive at surrounding tables from breakfasts... More

The menu has everything you could think of on it. A true diner experience if you're visiting NY. omelettes are great. Make your own up or pick from the selection.

Stopped for breakfast as I love diners and this one has been around a long time. Pleasant setting, quick service, plenty of early morning space. Ordered pancakes as I do the first time I have breakfast at any restaurant and was greatly disappointed. They were soggy and spongy and for the first time in ages I did not finish my... More

As part of our visit to New York we wanted to eat at an authentic diner and this place definitely fit the bill. The welcome from the staff was warm and they led us to a table with plenty of room for the five of us. The menu was extensive and the prices affordable. We ordered a variety of items... More

Would recommend other diners, it was okay but would rush back. Had breakfast and found food to be standard and staff a little rude.

We just happened upon the Skylight Diner and saw lots of customers coming and going so we decided to give it a try. We sat right down and had quick friendly service. I had scrambled eggs, potatoes,& toast. Great price,great food! We will definitely be back on this trip.

This great diner has a expansive menu, very fast & friendly service, also very reasonably priced. It's open 24 hours a day and all options are available on the menu. If you want to get away from the crowds from Broadway & 7th Ave I recommend this place.

We ( 2 of us) were headed for the bus home and starving! Peaked in the window and saw people with fresh vegetables on their plates and enjoying their food. We went in and sure enough... No pretense and great service! No problem accommodating us with special requests. Crispy, HUGE, fresh salads and vegetables with your entree and as sides!... More

Stumbled upon this place on Christmas Day after a walk through the Highline. Very few places were open, so we settled on this one. This is such a typical American diner. The menu is big and one can always find something to eat. The quality was OK (once you adjust your expectations).

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
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 City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
