This old Woolworth Building is a fun for quick looks! It takes about 30 minutes (or less) to look at the displays (many which are interesting, especially to Baby Boomers who will remember Woolworth luncheonettes and stores. Disappointingly NO milkshakes, per the "older days of Woolworth" or any other iconic foods from the "good 'ol days".

It had the typical store appearance and it's great to see the name around still even though the stores have gone. This is mainly a cafe with a small museum and it is a... More

The menu here is a little special with items that most other restaurant do not have. It is a place to go for a treat when the "fast food type of menu" gets old.

We are old enough to remember seeing or buying display objects and to appreciate relative brevity of tour experience. We learned that NYC Woolworth building was tallest

Tiny museum in the cafe, takes you back to the 50's. Only takes about 10 minutes to look at everything, but kind of fun.

Food is great and lots of choice. Some of the local police eat here so you know it is good. Friendly staff.

Very limited menu, dark not friendly decor. Wait staff was very friendly. We will probably not return.

Stopped in Woolworth's just because it was there still and going in took me back to childhood times. (Only other one I've been recently was in Santa Fe, NM). The store is very authentic in its layout keeping with the old times store. Cafe has pretty good simple American dishes. Fun to visit & to share with kids who didn't... More
