Very pleasant place to have breakfast. Food is good but nothing special considering the prices. Service not particularly alert.

It's nice to find a nice little cafe in Midtown East for breakfast. I had an omelet and enjoyed it very much.

Being gluten free and wanting to eat organic can be very hard when traveling. This gem of a restaurant is the perfect choice. The food is delicious and there is a lot to choose from. There are vegan choices as well.

We like to take a break in the afternoon, sit down and savor something delicious with our beverage. Black and heb teas were very good and the water was very hot which is what we wanted. Both the raspberry and the pistachio tarts were excellent. Community table worked fine and we met people easily. Staff is very busy but also... More

I was given the worst most exposed table in the restaurant despite it being fairly empty, I assume because I was on my own. Table by toilets and staff station so jostled by staff all meal. Staff run from here to there but pay no real attention to the customers. Exceptionally poor service and probably too few staff. Service still... More

This is a cool French restaurant near MoMA in NYC. We had brunch here and the food was pretty food. The ambience is also pretty good and relaxing. Would recommend this place whenever you visit MoMA.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
