We were staying at a hotel one block away and we came here for breakfast every day. Good pricing and excellent food! We have had the omelette, bacon egg and cheese sandwiches, pancakes and waffles. Everything was delicious and the waitresses were great. Definitely recommend

We went here for dinner before flying home. It was really friendly, lots of locals having dinner. There is a large choice on the menu from salads, Italian pasta to burgers. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. They serve a good range of beer.

This was our second diner we visited at definitely was better than the first. Pancakes were delicious and the perfect amount (3 quite large). Delicious and not expensive. Worth a visit.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
