“Great staff; good variety, quality; ideal location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

Isadora's is a natural place to visit for breakfast (to go, or in) or for a snack later in the day if you are staying in midtown - especially if you are at the Omni Berkshire (directly opposite).

Long opening hours, 7 days a week but not busy at any time I have visited.

Like most of these places, it has a huge variety on the menu and the staff are only too happy to help with questions.

Very happy with the omelettes, pancakes and other breakfast items. Pizza at lunch one time was fine. Coffee is not the best, but it's OK.

For the price & convenience and the great location, it's ideal and for those staying at the Omni it's almost a no-brainer to get breakfast here (cheaper and better !).

“Very happy with this cafe for breakfast, great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

This cafe is right across from our hotel - we have eaten breakfast there three days in a row. The food is very good - my husband is a french toast "aficionado" and really likes the cinnamon challah french toast special. Fresh orange juice (not part of the special), freshly made french toast, eggs and bacon all for about $20 for the two of us. Can't beat that, especially in NYC. I particularly want to compliment and thank the hard-working staff in Isadora's. They are so pleasant, helpful and efficient - what a great group! Even when serving a lot of people, they are terrific. (This is in contrast to another cafe close by, which was quite a different experience.) The cafe has nice seating upstairs. Lots of good options for breakfast and lunch. Lucky for us this cafe is so close.

“Great choice of food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

Many fresh meals - mexican, soup, pizza, burgers, salads, lasagne... The list goes on and on! Choice of desserts too - cakes, muffins....
There is a seating area upstairs, away from the busy streets.

“Incredibly Nice with Awesome Muffins and Coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

I am used to New York deli's and bodegas but Isadora's is phenomenal!!! The coffee is outstanding, the muffins, if possible, are even better!! I even got four muffins to take back home with me and wished I'd gotten more. If we hadn't been in meetings for lunch, I'd have loved to have tried on of their sandwiches. The team that works in here is so incredibly nice and sincerely appreciates your business. This little spot is an absolute gem in NYC!!!
