This is our second time here. First was 1 year ago. It was not as good this time on several fronts: 1. While our server was delightful, the food delivery was slow. Despite there being only a handful of tables filled, it took a good 25 minutes for our food to arrive. 2. The taste of our food was very... More

We had a nice breakfast at Big Daddys! The pancackes were divine! Nice coffee to accompany it. Good staff. It was quiet when we went in but by the time we left it was very busy. I would go back for sure!

We had chicken on a ciabatta followed by waffles with chocolate and marshmallows. The meal was really tasty. Our server was also really friendly. Would recommend if you fancy a meal in a retro diner.

This was exactly what we were looking for... a real, fun, all-American Diner with all the classic dishes! The staff were friendly and really helpful at explaining the menu. We left full and delighted after our visit here.

Tasty, fast and fattening burgers, fries, pancakes, and desserts when you need it. Good for casual meals. Kitschy decor.

My partner and I desperately fancied hash browns (tatter tots) one morning and was recommended to us by a member of our hotel staff. We loved it so much we actually returned three times, making sure our last breakfast was spent here! The atmosphere is a typical American diner, run by lovely members of staff.

Typical American-Esque diner! Not the most appealing from outside but don't let it put you off! The staff are very friendly, welcoming and really helpful! A really vast menu, pretty much anything you want. Great breakfast/brunch options, pancakes, big breakfasts, burgers, milkshakes! Reasonable prices too, around $10 for pancakes and they were very big & nice. Definitely worth the visit... More

A friend recommended this place and it didn't disappoint. A retro style diner with superheroes on the wall and 80s tunes playing, it was fun and friendly. Typical diner fare with an all day breakfast menu. I had the pancakes and bacon which came with maple syrup and a big dollop of whipped cream. It was huge and I only... More

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighbourhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighbourhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being the home of a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
