    Great little place to grab a quick bite before heading to catch a train at Grand Central Station. Also great for a good business lunch or just a place to get the weather. Basic diner food.

    The amount of food is impressive and makes the price worth it. Got the three egg omelet with cheddar cheese, mushrooms and spinach. Delicious! Atmosphere is busy and the decor is really neat.

    I had the steak & eggs - the steak was a perfect rare and well-seasoned; the eggs were right, but the potatoes were a bit underdone and a touch bland.

    Loved the atmosphere, service was also great. People were right about the cheesecake, it's delicious to go with green sencha tea. I wouldn't recommend the Caesar salad, it hadn't chicken in it ;)

    Stop in here for what may be the best pancakes in Midtown - buttery, slightly crispy, and fluffy.
