    Eastern European dive and diner with excellent French toast (made with homemade challah) and very good blintzes. Open 24 hours.

    The Odessa combination was very good with exception to the potatoes pancake which was huge but bland and easily the least enjoyable thing on the plate. The SAUERKRAUT and onions were stupendous, tasty

    I quickly fell in love with the atmoshere, service and food. Feels very Eastern European and relaxed. Having the Odessa combination plate on very very early on the 4th of July and loving it!

    Great old polish style diner 24 hours a day.T cash only for deliveries. Way around it is to use menu pages or one of the other menu services like SEAMLESS to use credit cards there for delivery.

    This ’80s-era establishment is still going strong! Odessa wins the heart of old and young residents alike for the comfort food and 24-hour service on weekends.

    Sink into a dark booth with friends, a whiskey or a coffee and unwind. Except for the conspicuous absence of cigarette smoke it's the nostalgic NYC diner experience that's all but disappeared.

    If you're battling a cold, get a matzoh ball soup and a grilled cheese sandwich with kieblasa. The sausage is unwieldy, but oh so good. Perfect comfort food.

    Great grilled cheese with bacon sandwich. The bread was so crispy and full of butter.

    Dear skater and rock a billy bartenders. Please less Buzzcocks and Fugazi. Play more fierce music like Sylvester and Donna Summer. Love your loyal Friday night customer.

    Not Russian food per se, like it's described in some guides, but rather 'American borscht belt' food. The cafe, not necessarily the restaurant, is a great place to sit unhurriedly with a friend.

    Probably the best red stucco ceiling on Ave A btw 7th and St. Marks. The breakfast special is pretty good too.

    Agree with Ken. This is the East Village Tom's. Although it's missing that chipotle hot sauce, it makes up for it with perogies.
