As reviewed, this looks to be another New York diner. But we were pleasantly surprised! The Morning Star is definitely a cut above the rest! Fast, fresh, and friendly... exactly what we wanted to start a busy morning!

This classic American diner was a block down the road from our son's apartment and do convenient for breakfast on our last morning. It was busy, service was excellent and the food very good. My Irish breakfast with white and black pudding was particularly nice.

The restaurant was clean and quick. We had breakfast and it was good but nothing to brag about. If you need a quick breakfast it will be fine.
