Comfort food at its finest. The biggest problem here is deciding what to eat. Old fashion deli style food with beautiful lusty pastries in the window. By the time we finished eating no one had room for dessert.

The place has all the classical dishes served in extra large portions. There is also an impressive variety of cakes. The interior looks a bit run down.

Sat at the counter. Had prakas which is cabbage stuffed with beef. Served with creamy mashed potatoes, and steamed vegetables. $13 Felt like an authentic Jewish diner

The place might have been cool a few decades ago but now is tired and shabby. We were the only diners. The Reuben sandwich, however, was very good. But If I had gone to the restrooms before the meal , I would not have eaten...More

I love this place. A counter seat, a great server, bacon, eggs (cooked perfect), hash browns, and toast. Butter and jelly on the counter. They also have a great bakery. Black and white cookie! Can’t go wrong.

As a native New Yorker, I sometimes long for a good hot pastrami sandwich with potato salad an Dr Brown's cream soda. You can get these and a lot more at David's. Sandwiches are delicious, service is very good, atmosphere unpretentious.

We went there for late breakfast and the service was very slow considering they were not very busy. It took a while before someone took our order and took very long to get our food. Food was ok. Had corned beef with eggs.
