Haven't been here in years. Visited for brunch, which means a nice sized Bloody Mary (there is a choice of others) and a fruit salad, besides the coffee and the main course. Considering the price for an egg omelet breakfast with coffee is $13-$15, the...More

We have stopped here before in the early afternoon hours after some fasting lab appointments just two blocks away because we like omelettes and eggs after the labs. They make very nice breakfast foods anytime. This time my wife had two eggs, sunny side up,...More

I always have breakfast with my uncle who lives a block away. Coffee, cheese omelet, bacon and an hour of good conversation for which a large tip makes us welcome.

Breakfast was good, no complaints there. Service was standard NYC diner. The ladies restroom however, reflected poorly on the Silver Star. Don't think the floor had seen a mop in all its years and the toilet itself had seen cleaner days.

Perfect to accomodate large groups. Traditional food, large portions. Not very fancy but sufficient elegance. Conveniently located.

Good diner, open 6am to midnight. Prompt pleasant service. Convenient. Usual diner fare - breakfast to burgers, sandwiches, full dinners. We have had breakfast here a number of times. A bit pricey - coffee is $2.20, soda is $3.05, eggs (with no meat) $8+ so...More
