Right outside the train station. Good selection of drinks and grab and go or quick eats for breakfast and lunch or anytime.

Best place to eat a breakfast or soup and sandwich or even a custom salad nearby the MSKCC hospital. Been here many times since 2006. The quality is consistent. The atmosphere typical.

We usually eat here several times during our visit. It's a great place to grab a quick breakfast. The food is really good. I always like the oatmeal bar. Hot breakfasts are delicious as well.

Name suggests a tourist cafe, but seemed to be a mixture of both tourists and local workers. Great selection of sandwiches, and 2 make your own counters. One for pasta the other for salads. Plenty of seating or you can take you food away.

We were looking for a quick breakfast. Europa did not disappoint. Made fresh in front of you and a great value for NYC.

If you like a good salad, they will fix it like you want it. And, if you like it chopped, it only takes a second. Plenty of room to sit down, and visit with co-workers or your friend. Also have sandwiches, and delicious pastry.

We stopped in here for a well earned break and had coffee and smoothies and I noticed that I was given a dollar short in my change I also heard the couple behind mention the same The lady who served us called Radha obviously wanted to make herself a bit more money.

This establishment caters to the tourist trade, with a wide selection of sandwiches, salads and stirfries. We got a mozarella caprese panini and a turkey wrap. These were pretty average, not too great.

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.
