Loved the breakfast/brunch choices. The waiters work so hard and it is very busy at times. Pancakes are lovely. Coffee is free flowing. We ate here twice and enjoyed both meals immensely. Would definitely revisit this place to eat.

This diner offers a decent variety of breakfast options. It was a good place to visit with kids, and there was enough open seating that we did not have to wait. The food was just ok, but it did the trick and provided something a little more substantial than the bakeries located nearby.

My mom ordered the Salad Nicoise, my sister had the omelette and I had the BBQ Beef Special Sandwich which was very delicious. We all enjoyed our meals. If you want an inexpensive but good... More

Four of us went there at about 10 pm for a late dinner and enjoyed our salads. Service was prompt, the salads had fresh Romaine lettuce (at our request), and the prices were reasonable for NYC. Our friends who live in Manhattan go to the Galaxy often.

Recently stayed in times square on a family vacation, there was 8 of us needless to say we got up late and missed breakfast at the hotel! The concierge told us about Galaxy stating it was the best breakfast around! And within walking distance with the kids. The employees were very welcoming, and service was quick. We pretty much all...

Great value for money and fast service. The lemonade is home made and is worth going in just for that! The food was good and large servings. Would go back again for casual dining

We stayed in New York the first week of march for 1 week. We had breakfast at galaxy diner 4 out of 6 mornings, even though we had to walk several blocks to get there. Great food great service at a lot less cost than many other places. Would definitely go back if visited New York again

A comfy place for very casual dining. The fare is standard, the service is attentive, and you can dash in and out or linger awhile over your meal in the comfortable seating with a glass of beer and wine. Caters to a mix of tourists and locals.

Thank Ohheyman

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
