    I'm seriously wondering how this place manages to stay in business with its overpriced food/drinks and poor service. There are much better options all over the neighborhood.

    Delicious French toast in a classic diner. Extensive menu but pricey. Cash only tipping.

    The cinnamon raisin French toast was too sweet. Also the Arnold Palmer was nothing special and definitely not worth the $8.50!!!!!! Service was good and the food came out quickly. I would not return.

    Grilled cheese does not disappoint. Try their new local hot sauce alternative Pop Sauce on your sandwich!

    Get the French toast with maple syrup – it's delicious. If you're with a friend split one serving so it doesn't go cold, you get a lot of food on your plate.

    Had a Bacon Cheeseburger and wasn't impressed, a little boring. I have had many much better burgers over the years. The chocolate malt was good (and too much) but also not very special in my mind.

    Delicious, but beware. Tips in cash only. After not mentioning this, they claimed they're "not good at" the credit machine and won't void to add it. Sooo no tip for my waitress. Your loss friends.

    The chicken salad sandwich I ordered came out maybe fifty seconds after I placed my order - speedy! Good diner food, if perhaps a tad pricey.

    Egg cream is fantastic, especially coffee or chocolate, which favors the proprietor does himself. Burger w/fried eggs, bacon & mushrooms can't be beat... as the atmosphere in this 100yr old joint...

    Continually operated by the same family (its last renovation was in 1948), it's a place to enjoy no-nonsense classics such as chopped egg or liverwurst sandwiches and the stellar ice cream fountain.

    I just paid $9 for a sandwich I could've made myself. So overpriced. Definitely not worth it.

    Order a chocolate egg cream soda - the best in the city. This iconic institution has the oldest soda jerk in NYC. Oh, the chocolate malt shake is another must try.
