Interesting café famous for its exposure on Seinfeld. Lots of pictures of Seinfeld characters, but other well-known celebrities. Great food, good portions, lots of choices. Staff very friendly. Easy style seating, both in and outside.

If you are a Seinfeld fan. A must visit. Take the time to go inside. Best milkshakes in New York - kids thought so! They also make s great banana split

Pretty good food. Average prices. Breakfast served 24 hours. A few references to the TV Show that made it famous, and a wall of interesting pictures.
