Had two average meals here (breakfast and dinner). Can't say I was overly impressed with the food on both occasions, there are better Diners in the area at a more competitive price. Note: they imposed a service charge on our bill when we had dinner....More

Love the atmosphere, it felt like I were in an American movie. The food was really good and reasonable priced, would definitely recommend the chocolate chip waffles. The service was amazing!

Staff very friendly and the coffee was spectacular. It has the feel of a traditional diner but the menu is not. I had the skillet and it was awesome.

If you're British or European you should be aware that whatever you order it'll be twice as much as you get at home. Odds are you won't finish it. Which is a shame because it's good food, well cooked and served with a smile.

We loved this old world place with its friendly staff and great reasonably priced food. It is clearly a favourite haunt of the locals, always a good sign.

We were walking by this diner, and I spied lots of great looking desserts in the window. I am a huge fan on NYC black and white cookies and always try to get one when we visit. It has been harder and harder to find...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
