    a tiny little corridor of a diner, reminiscent of an old 'coney island' in the Midwest, but with a much better menu. great, fast service. good cheap coffee. a real diner's diner.

    Best real Newyorker breakfast in town. Attend by hard working Mexican fellows. If you are at Chelsea don't miss it. Best pancakes and egg roll sausage.

    Everything is delicious, but you have to try their pancakes. Oh and they have limited seating so you might be waiting for quite some time

    If you're feeling particularly ambitious (and hungry), get the Curious George - Three Eggs, Bacon and Ham, French Fries, and Cheese on a Hero. The fries in the sandwich are a real game changer.

    Johny is the man! Great place for breakfast. Try the pancakes with chocolate chips and banana.

    The best place in the world to eat off a hangover. Expect a 15-20 minute wait for 2 (longer for a larger group) or order online and pickup at the window

    Just GO! A great local spot with great inexpensive food and old school lunch counter. Get their early for a seat at the counter, place is small. Also be ready to smell like food after you leave.

    A charming hole-in-the-wall brunch spot, bit like travelling back in time. Solid omelettes and bacon, super friendly staff. Great place!

    Great way to start your day is the 'Bigman Breakfast'. 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, bacon, sausage, hash browns and a coffee for $9,75 is quite a good deal.

    Johny is the man and runs a great diner that I've been coming to for about 7 years. Being very close to my office and having almost everything you could want throughout the workday is a big plus.

    Solid greasy spoon in midtown/flatiron. Specialty sandwiches are great: Curious George & Delicious Doug. Great value and lots of character.

    Friendly, really tasty, and affordable. Love this place. Just avoid it on weekends at lunch time as they are overbusy and understaffed. I waited a full hour for an egg sandwich 🤷‍♂️

    amazing breakfast, the "big man" breakfast is the way to go... and remember its tiny, not a spot for a large group, 1-2 people works best.

    This place gets a lot of hype and it's well deserved. I always get pancakes with whatever else I'm ordering because they're so fluffy. Coffee is very good too.

    It feels like a 50s movie. Pancakes with bacon drowned in maple syrup are delish. Servers are friendly and funny.

    Best breakfast in Manhattan, no joke. Reminds me of Neptune Diner over in Astoria, but far more friendlier.
