We ate breakfast here 2 days and both were very delicious. SO many options on the menu for meals 24x7.

Close to where we are staying. Great pancakes. Fair value - pricey but similar to others in the area. Good friendly service. No wait for a table.

The food was OK-ish (but I cannot see how my "Asian" salad had anything Asian about it!!), the wine was accepted by the ladies, but the beer selection is awful - just run-of-the-mill plastic mainline brews, with nothing notable. Why no decent beers? The US...More

Keep walking if you're looking for a quiet place on 34th & Eighth Avenue. This is a noisy, raucous place at meal times. That said, there are plenty of booths (my favorite seating) and a fun if not particularly healthful menu at this diner. Yet...More

We came to this diner based on a recommendation from a family member of one of the group we were travelling with. Despite it being mid afternoon we all opted for pancakes, crepes or waffles with chicken. The food was fairly standard but nothing special,...More

I had breakfast here 4 times during my stay at The New Yorker. The food is fast, the service is really good and the food is pretty good. Price is reasonably.. not super cheap but portion size is pretty good. I would definitely return.

Popped in for a quick breakfast. Initial meet, greet and seat slow (absent AWOL staff) but thereafter table service was prompt. Menu is somewhat over the top but what you actually get is simply good food at a good old fashioned American Diner price. Not...More
