Visited twice in three days- so that says it all! Great to get your fix of American classics Monte Cristo and pancakes, as well as great moussaka! Milkshakes are the best!

First morning in New York for a while and a very cold St.Patricks day too so we needed some sustenance before the rigours of the day. Based on Yelp recommendations we rocked up at the Westway at about 9. First impressions were excellent and, even though the place was almost full, we were seated immediately and served with hot coffee... More

The food was gorgeous and the staff were very efficient! The French toast was gorgeous and my friend has the bagel and loved it. Very good value for money compared to other places we ate in. Will definitely be back!

We ate here every morning during our 7 day trip. The menu is extensive and the breakfasts are out of this world. The pancakes are to die for with a wonderful array of toppings and are huge!!! My daughter had them every morning topped with strawberries. Scrambled eggs with corned beef hash was amazing, which was served with potatoes and... More

Went a few places for breakfast whilst in NY. However, Westway diner was by far the best for food! So delicious and very reasonably priced! Staff also very friendly and always coming over to top up your water and coffee. Definitely worth a visit if you're after a delicious breakkie ready for a big day ahead in NY!

Thank Jo B

We ate here every morning during our 5 day stay in NYC! It was just fab. We never got bored of the menu choice! Pancakes are to die for with so much maple syrup and topping choices, poached eggs on toast for a more homely brekky, refillable coffee and tea. Staff all very attentive and on the ball. The food...

Recommended by my hotel and it was fine. Huge menu and employees were efficient. I think this place has the name, therefore it was crowded. Food was good and just what I expected for diner food. We chose a different diner close by the next day and loved the calm atmosphere and the food was just as good if not... More

Well, Amy, I appreciate the candid feedback. Folks may know us by name, but we hope that it goes beyond that. We take pride in the food we serve, but it sounds like you didn't get our best during your visit. Here's hoping you can come back again sometime so we can show you the five-star time we're known for!... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
