Popped in here with friends for breakfast having read the reviews and staying just around the corner. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful in recommending the best dishes on the menu. As with most breakfasts NY style it's all eggs, eggs and more eggs so Benedict it was and we weren't disappointed. We popped in later in the week... More

We ate here since it was right across the street from our hotel and we wanted a diner breakfast (they are the best). We got there and they were sort of busy so we just waited at the front. a few tables cleared and an older gentleman seated us. Our waiter came over almost right away and took our drink... More

We were recommended Scotty's Diner by our hotel, it was two blocks away so was ideal for our breakfasts. We are here 3 times during our trip and I was very pleased with the service I received each time, the waiters couldn't do enough for you! I'm not very adventurous with food but my grilled cheese sandwiches were 10/10. Until... More

We decided to visit Scottys after reading the trip advisor reviews and wanting an authentic diner experience for breakfast. I don't think that you would necessarily come across this place but it is very close to grand central station. I had the corned beef hash with tea and orange juice, the food was very tasty and the portions large. The... More

We had breakfast here most mornings sausage, and eggs with plenty of home fries and free coffee refills. You must visit this place. Great service and good value for money.

Great food, amazing attentive service, delicious food, and atmosphere is quintessential NYC dinner feel like something in the movies - Full of energy, but very able to have a conversation at your table without raising your voice. Portions were generous and very affordable.

If you are a tourist, this is just what you might expect for a NYC diner. Long counter, large men with noticeable, but not heavy, New York accent running the counter and fast paced waitresses zipping from booth to booth with pots of coffee. The food came quickly and the portion was not skimpy. If you have a long day... More

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.
