This restaurant was packed, so I assumed it would be good - bad assumption on my part. It was dirty, the counter help was surly. I had a gyro. It was dry, the pita bread was rock hard and stall. The meat was dry and the portion small. It came with a Greek Salad - lettuce and tomato is not... More

First time visit after stopping in at NYU's Barney Hall. Also very close to New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. Clean place, lots of choices and food wasn't bad -- except it was not what I ordered. I asked for a cup of soup and got a bowl. I ordered a turkey BLT light on the mayo and got a... More

We've eaten lunch here once every week or so for a while, and we've never had a bad meal. We often get "breakfast food"--eggs, pancakes, french toast--but we have also gotten the pasta, burgers, and salad. The food is always excellent, which is why we keep going back. Great shakes too.

I have compiled a very impressive and extensive list of restaurant outings in my brief 22 years on earth and I have never been so angry at my life than at this place. First off setup of restaurant is very crowded and awkward. We placed our order and paid and sat down. As in NYC we did a lot of... More

We had omelets and French toast and all of it was good. Cooked fresh. Food is served on plastic dishes and plastic forks which is strange but I can understand the ease of cleaning up and not having a wait staff. It's a busy place and they get people in and out quickly. Very friendly owner and staff.

We had the egg sandwiches andthe vegetable omelet. Owner was very friendly. Food was terrific. Only complaint i can think of is that the food and drinks are served on take away platters and cups. Plastic forks amd knifes. Very strange.

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
