Called in for a hot drink after being out on the river. Ended up having lunch. This is everything you would expect from an American diner. The food and drinks were very good and come with iced water which was refilled without asking.

Tiramisu was delicious, baklava was just okay, lemon meringue pie was awful. No flavor. Cappuccino was terrific and coffee was very good. Clean and pretty good service. Prices are a bit high but the desserts are more like a triple portion.

Lovely good food. Welcoming and nice service. Just up the road from the New Yorker hotel. Lovely view when standing out side.

We were staying at a hotel one block away and we came here for breakfast every day. Good pricing and excellent food! We have had the omelette, bacon egg and cheese sandwiches, pancakes and waffles. Everything was delicious and the waitresses were great. Definitely recommend

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
