We stopped in for a late lunch and were quickly seated outdoors. We ordered an appetizer (chips and guac) right away, as we were quite hungry, and it arrived soon after. My sister was happy to find that they offered some gluten-free options. The food...More

Just such fun to start the day with breakfast here and watch the New York world walk by. Food was fantastic and incredible value. We kept coming back! It was full of New Yorkers as well as tourists.

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
