    I love this place but be ready to eat and run, not much of a leisurely hang around vibe.

    Las papas fritas no son tan buenas, pero vale la pena la visita por la serie de Seinfeld

    Classic diner fare. Also the iconic Seinfeld facade.

  • Alexandre R.

    Devia ter lido as dicas antes! A comida é bem fraquinha, os donos não souberam pegar carona no sucesso. Se limitem a tirar foto da fachada e ir embora.

    Ingrid the server was probably the sweetest and nicest server i ever met. As long as you do it with love

    Seinfeld was NOT filmed inside here: only the outside was used on the show. There is a signed poster inside. Like most diners, cash only, but handy in that they actually have an ATM.

    Customer service here is terrible. Also the diner didn't look anything like it does in Seinfeld.

    Milkshakes and malted milk both are SO good, consistently. My favorite non-spiked milkshake in the neighborhood.

    Share a milkshake. They are really big.

    It's the restaurant that features in every Seinfeld episode. Take a picture of the place, but don't go in. Some of their waiters can't even speak English. Food is average. It's not worth it.

    I strictly went here for "Seinfeld". The service is incredibly fast and I ordered Tom's "famous" shishkabob which was sub par. Cool diner-like atmosphere but I would say just get your pic and leave.

    Can't go wrong with any breakfast foods

    This place is famous for the sitcom "Seindfield". The staff is friendly. Pumkin soup is awesome!

    Most people come here to visit the shrine to Seinfeld, but they stay because of the milkshakes and the good diner food

    Bread and scrambled eggs. Bathroom is pretty full of drawings, though :)

    My go-to restaurant for drunk food. Amazing milkshakes and breakfast food. Don't get seafood though, that's not their specialty.

  • Jonathon O.

    Had the soup, chicken fingers, and turkey triple decker. Good food!

    Jonathon Olson · October 30, 2014
  • Ashley P.

    When you ask for a double burger, it is not 2 patties as you'd suspect, it's actually 2 glorious whole burgers. So good and worth it.

    2 👍👍 up! I went strictly because of the obvious, Seinfeld. And I ended up loving it! The server was great, was great. Oreo shake is awesome. Chocolate pancakes too! Outside seating available.

    ImSo_Brooklyn · September 15, 2014
  • Jins

    Get the Ruben sandwich for $10. Comes with fries and he sandwich is massive. Easily feeds two people. Also get the chocolate milkshake

    Don't you just take a picture outside :) Try breakfast and pancakes. Friendly staff...

    This is the restaurant that's Seinfeld filmed or his episodes in

    Fish and Chips, service is quick, but not fast food quick. Great conversational environment.

    Fish and Chips. Great value, not to slow, very clean. Great place to have a conversation or date.

    Did not order the big salad #Seinfeld

    Kristine Alison · August 1, 2014
  • Aleksei K.

    Very tasty homemade soups

    Aleksei Kachanov · July 27, 2014
  • Jody W.

    Though the facade is only featured on Seinfeld, I felt like I walked right onto set; waitress spent the entire hour+ eating(complete with ice cream @8 AM?) and picking pimples off her face. WWGD?

  •  ℋumorous

    They never filmed Seinfeld here, just the exterior. Jerry Seinfeld & Jason Alexander did film an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee as their famous characters in season 3 "The Over-Cheer" ☺

    Pancakes were tasty.

    Great late night study spot in the summer when Butler Library isn't open 24/7. Free WiFi from campus and bottomless coffee.

    Thomas Ngo · June 20, 2014
  • Peter F.

    Food is crappy. Have a milk shake and/or fries. Then eat dinner next door at Dig Inn.

    An icon. Great food. Doesn't take cards :(

    Essa dica vai pros brasileiros. Passem na frente, tirem uma foto e vão comer em outro lugar. Foi seguramente a pior comida que provei em NY.

    Tasty food. Great atmosphere. Cash only so come prepared.

  • Krıstófer-Þórır D.

    Monk's Café in Seinfeld ... Broiled Salmon is my favorite here. Otw Deluxe burger or hot pastrami sandwich r a good choice for quick meal between classes.

    Average diner food

    One of the best diners in NY plus the tv show Seinfeld was filmed here

    Calvin Sherman · March 2, 2014

    Thursday specials. :)

    Try the milkshakes!

  • Ellen L.

    Food here sucks. Nothing tastes fresh. They don't even try to make the food taste ok because of the fame. Tourist trap.

    Ellen Lee · January 19, 2014

    Only if your a die hard fan of Seinfeld...

    Angela · December 22, 2013

    Folgers coffee, campbell's soup, and strawberry quik in the milkshake.
