Quickly served, friendly enough service. Omelette florentine was delicious, but I never got my coffee! My husband ordered a salad with consisted of cottage cheese and fruit which was expected, but then 1/3 of the plate was jello...which was strange.

Whatever you want for breakfast you can get it here in a traditional American Diner sort of way. Excellent value for money and well worth making the effort to get there early in the morning before you start exploring NYC.

This was an excellent diner for a good simple diner breakfast and coffee. I had the bacon egg cheese and tomato sandwich which was actually great! A good cup of coffee too. Staff was friendly, didn't rush me, and the order was served very fast. Recommended.

We visited Murray Hill Diner in April 2017. The waitress had a generally rude demeanour when taking out order. Once I got my sandwich I didn't really mind her rudeness as it did look good. The first few bites were nice but I then discovered a long hair within the meat. I called the same waitress over who immediately took... More

Tried this local diner for Sunday brunch. The place was busy, Trip Advisor reviews looked good, so in we went. We were seated straight away by a friendly and attentive server. Our orders were taken reasonably quickly, we had coffee, and surprisingly quickly given how busy this place was, food was brought to our table. However it wasn't what we... More

If you want a big breakfast before a days sightseeing, then this is a good option. Plates are big, the service friendly and the decor feels like a proper diner. The prices aren't bad either, you can tell because its full of locals!

My friend and I are here twice during our recent trip to New York. It's your typical American diner and I got the impression it was mostly frequented by locals rather than tourists. Typical menu consisted of various omelettes, hash browns, cinnamon toast...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
