“Great brunch!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Amazing food - simple dishes with quality ingredients. We arrived early for Sunday morning brunch and got a great seat by the window, making people watching a perfect addition to our meal. Highly recommended!

“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

Got off the subway early on the way to The Guggenhiem for a proper American breakfast. It was definitely worth it. Two of us had French toast - a big plate of brioche toast with toppings (I had banana and almonds - they certainly didn't scrimp on the topping) and a bottle of warm maple syrup. Big glasses of fruit juice and continuous refills of mugs of coffee. Service also good. Would definitely recommend!

“Good authentic NYC diner”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

Good authentic. Don't take credit cards. Happy to keep you on the door until your full party arrives, so they know they're popular. But friendly and the food is genuine American diner fare. Really enjoyed it.

“Great Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

We went there for Sunday Brunch on a recommendation. Busy as you'd expect. The staff got us seated within 5 minutes. The food was terrific. Big portions. Mimosas. Good coffee. Very prompt and efficient service. Very good value. Handy location.

“Avoid Avoid Avoid”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Went here as a quick stop for some lunch and were very disappointed. Not only were the burgers dry and tasteless but you had to pay extra for fries - 15 bucks for a burger at a self proclaimed 'diner'? Secondly no where when entering the diner or on the wall does it state that it is a cash only restuarant, so when we went to pay we got a huge surprise and were told we could use there 2.50 per withdrawal ATM in the basement! They are just taking money from customers while providing bad service, overcrowded seating area and overpriced food.
Avoid.
