    Egg cream is fantastic, especially coffee or chocolate, which favors the proprietor does himself. Burger w/fried eggs, bacon & mushrooms can't be beat... as the atmosphere in this 100yr old joint...

    Old school diner, amazing egg cream and homemade soda. Tuna melt and butter cheeseburger were tasty. Would come back again to try other things on the menu

    Get the French toast with maple syrup – it's delicious. If you're with a friend split one serving so it doesn't go cold, you get a lot of food on your plate.

    Continually operated by the same family (its last renovation was in 1948), it's a place to enjoy no-nonsense classics such as chopped egg or liverwurst sandwiches and the stellar ice cream fountain.

    The french toast with a side of sausage was so delicious. The coffee is also excellent. Love the vintage feel.

    One the last spots in NYC to make coke with syrup (maybe the last). You want to try that although it might be very sweet for you. The French toast was surprisingly good.

    Classic Strawberry. Blending Bassetts Ice Cream of Philadelphia’s classic vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and coffee shakes since 1925. You'll feel like you've been transported to a soda fountain. Read more

    Greatest lemonade you will ever taste. Same goes for the club sandwich. Wonderful, nostalgic vibe, and the owner is very friendly if you strike up a conversation.

    I had the pancakes here for breakfast this morning, they were some of the best I have ever had! The waitress was really nice and helpful and the place was welcoming!

    The eggs were phenomenal. By far and away the best diner eggs I’ve ever had. The secret, I think, is an absurd amount of butter.

    Grilled cheese does not disappoint. Try their new local hot sauce alternative Pop Sauce on your sandwich!

    Arnold Palmer is freshly made & delicious! Perfect with bacon cheddar burger or club sandwich made as you order right behind the counter. Yum!

    Definitely worth the wait for a classic float or other fountain drink but food items seem overpriced.

    100 year old vibe that's authentic without trying. Great noodle soup, french toast, egg cream, and many classic diner staples. Old freshly made, old style.

    I used to come here for milkshakes, now I’m off sugar and I still come here because it’s just a super cute spot for dates.

    Coffee malted milkshake. Fresh squeezed lemonade with sugar syrup. Shrimp salad sandwich. Ginger soda with vanilla ice cream. For the truly brave? The jelly omelet.

    Order a chocolate egg cream soda - the best in the city. This iconic institution has the oldest soda jerk in NYC. Oh, the chocolate malt shake is another must try.

    The line moves quickly, and the food is decent but be aware that prices are not affordable, even by NYC standards.

    Delicious, but beware. Tips in cash only. After not mentioning this, they claimed they're "not good at" the credit machine and won't void to add it. Sooo no tip for my waitress. Your loss friends.
