I wandered through the Lincoln Center area today and found Old John's Luncheonette, a delightful surprise and a great place for a simple breakfast. Service was fast and efficient; my two eggs over easy on a roll with bacon were perfect, albeit a little messy...More

We've had breakfast here for years, and keep coming back because it is consistently solid. They're not aiming to impress: instead, they want to give you good food for a low price. A food anchor in the neighborhood.

My girlfriend and I moved to the Lincoln Square area a few months ago. The diners in the area are either completely horrible or good but too expensive. We happened upon Old John's a few weeks ago on our way to the Apple Store. It's...More

We had breakfast here twice and would strongly recommend it. The food was good - such fluffy pancakes - and the service personal and friendly. Popular with locals and with a really genuine feel to it.

Old John's is a longtime family-owned neighborhood place - basic diner/coffee shop food (in NYC diners are coffee shops) such as grilled cheese, Greek salad, eggs etc. The kindhearted owner passed away a year ago and his son is now managing the place. Old John's...More

It's really unremarkable, so much so I hesitate to call it underwhelming. What more is there to say. I've been there 10 times in 10 years. Every time I was met with reasonable staff, the reason I give it 3 stars, but the food just...More

I don't think is a fantastic or even a good place. Went there in a few times, mostly for breakfasts. Some people probably like it. It's pretty expensive, compare to the place.If U lucky there is a very nice waitress there. Maybe the place is...More
