“Good eat'n in Chelsea”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

I visit the city several times a month but never stop long enough for breakfast. This is a must for those willing to venture away from the tourist areas and blend in with the locals. To my surprise, it was not crowded at 10am despite the recommendation for reservations. Must have been a sleep-in Saturday in Chelsea, because this is a great value diner. The wait staff was very friendly and made us feel very welcomed. The food was good, typical for a well run diner. Definitely will visit again when I'm back in the city.

“Loads of choice, huge breakfasts”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

Went there several times for breakfast and was impressed by the value and size of portions - you certainly won't go hungry! There is lots of choice - and various specials offerred Monday to Friday. Pancakes bacon & syrup, or french toast with fresh berries, I would highly recommend. Service is quick and reasonably friendly, by New York standards. I personally wouldn't choose to eat there in an evening and it is a bit basic and just a diner, but plenty of people did. There is also free wifi here!

“Great Diner”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

I revisited this diner as we had several excellent breakfast's in there when we went in December 09. It is run by a great family and we got to know all the waiters. We were stopping at my brothers apartment nearby and he tells me the family regularly ask how we are. The portions are big and there's loads to choose from. The Diner is spacious and clean but well worn. An excellent experience and well worth a visit for a good value meal.
