“Great Potatoes”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Warm, friendly place to be, with a mix of regulars and visitors. Good, varied menu with fairly speedy service.

This might sound funny, but the home fried potatoes were by far the best I had in New York.

Generous portions made this a really good place for breakfast.

“Perfect breakfast in NYC!”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Huge pancakes with juicy berries, maple syrup, eggs Benedict, home fries and huuuuge slices of French toast. Plus the coffee keeps flowing. All served in diner booths. Perfect!

“Old fashioned, disappearing coffee shop”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

This is the real deal. Solo regulars. Breakfast is best. Try the oatmeal. Very, very accommodating staff. You may start to call one "Mom."

“Choose wisely and you will be happy”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

So party of 10 (6 adults, 4 teenagers) great vibe- we had all just met after a year apart and were spending the weekend together some from NC and us from Scotland. This menu is vast- like nothing you have ever seen before. Most choose grilled lemon chicken salad but for those who ordered the chicken or lamb Goya not so good!!! Hey ho, I choose the chicken and the French fries are quite possibly the very best I have ever tasted - not kidding!!!
Get's my vote for a return trip
Great job by the staff
Ps gave a 4 for balance

“My favourite breakfast in New York!”
Reviewed 30 August 2013 via mobile

The pancakes! Delicious, huge, with strawberries and masses of maple syrup. Yum!

I expect this is quite a staple diner but I love it and think it great value. The staff are civil, it's not expensive and the coffee flows. I don't want any thing else for my New York breakfast .
