Crazy, one of a kind diner style restaurant. It's fast, it's noisy, it's messy - but the food is great! It's a favorite Village breakfast spot. The locals love it. Service is fast paced, but efficient. I had the oatmeal, it was very good. The...More

Many items to choose from. They serve breakfast all day. Very affordable price and generous plates. Food is made to order and you can watch the cook preparing it. I love that place...

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
