Looking for old fashioned counter diner with modern great food this is for you. You enter to see 1950s counter but go around back to the tables. Great breakfast friendly service

This is the classic diner go-to in Morningside Heights. If you can get past the cons of noise and service, you will be in breakfast nirvana. For the pros and cons, the pros are their décor and polka dot theme palace of kitsch. There is also a good variety of tasty of menu items from savory to sweet. For their... More

Many options available and food is delicious! The seating is pretty cramped, and they seem understaffed so service is on the slower staff, but the food makes up for it.

Very crowded little lunch spot. We were quickly seated and the service was really fast. Our waitress was welcoming and offered several suggestions. My colleague and I both had the half kitchwich (chicken salad that day) and clam chowder. It was really good on a cold day. The cakes looked amazing when we came in the door - too bad... More

Visited for brunch. Food was excellent and great value.Staff were brilliant and unlike many places in New York we were able to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. Enjoyed so much we returned later that week.

This restaurant is in my neighborhood. I used to come here a lot when I was younger. I just went this past weekend and was very disappointed. The food is soooo mediocre. Take their biscuits--dry, chalky, bland, turn to cement in your mouth. I literally would rather have a Pilsbury biscuit from a can. And one biscuit as a side... More

Muffins straight out of the oven stuffed with fresh-tasting blueberries. Organic coffee like we make at home (better than Starbucks). Very cheery waitress. Large selection of breakfast selections. We had the omelet, farmhouse breakfast, pancakes. Everything was fresh, simple and attractively prepared. The salad was yummy. Jams are homemade. We will be back!

Have to find our way back here more often (it's not exactly around the corner for us). What a pleasant surprise. We went on the recommendation of "foodies" (chefs and otherwise) and were not disappointed. Attentive service, generous portions and, oh yeah..good food!

We took the time to catch the subway after a recommendation and were not disappointed!! Great food, friendly service, well priced. I had the lumberjack breakfast and it was mega!! Highly recommend booking or you will be waiting at peak times - well worth it though!!
