Local place that does excellent breakfasts, and decent lunches and diners there. With total meal including salads and desserts included in some. Try their specials. The only issues are it is a bit cramped inside and somewhat loud so I only go through occasionally. Best...More

This little diner is within a two block walk of the Metropolitan and if your tastes run to just some good diner food for lunch this will satisfy nicely. It has a large menu with breakfast stuff available all day as well as an array...More

The summary should be: worse than bad. This is how we felt today when we had lunch at the restaurant. Our worst experience in NYC. The worst part: service and general management. We travel with two kids and we asked several times about the size...More

This is in a very pricey part of Madison Ave, and near the Met museum, so don't be shocked at the high prices. It is very popular with locals and gets lots of tourists too. It is a long narrow coffee shop, and not really...More

The room itself is small and dated like so much of New York (something we in California are not used to so much). A busy diner with quick service and smiling waiters as others have pointed out. I enjoyed the Gyro although not the style...More
