The Palace restaurant is a traditional American diner, with a wide menu. I went for dinner alone on a business trip to New York when I wanted something simple, but more than just fast food/street food. The service was friendly, the portions were very large, the quality was OK but not great. If Tripadvisor had a rating of "good" Palace... More

I ate breakfasts here. Great spinach omelette with feta cheese came with lyonnaise potatoes. Service was very fast. They serve a nice Celestial Seasonings Earl Gray tea. The fresh fruit and pastries looked great but I did not try them. The only thing I didn't like is that they make singles sit at the counter.

We stopped in for breakfast as we were staying next door at the Hotel 57. This place offers good food at a bargain price for NY. You won't go wrong eating here if you're looking for coffee house food while in NYC

Was walking to the subway on Lexington Avenue. Unfortunately, I was going the wrong way. However, fortunately I happened upon this restaurant. It was clean, bright and interesting. The large menu is typical coffee shop/ dinner. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. I was here for breakfast. I ordered the nova lox and onion omelette. It came out perfect and... More

What a nice place. The owner and the waiters are so lovely. The food is very good Coffee a Shop food. Very good eggs and very good grilled cheese sandwich. Also the daily soups are good. Not inexpensive but great value for the neighborhood. Always such a pleasant experience.

Remember when NYC had tons and tons of great coffee shops? Time to take a wonderful time travel trip to The Palace on East 57th Street. Great wait staff who are super accommodating. HUGE portions (splitting is okay with them, no extra charge). Very reasonable prices. Downstairs is a typical coffee shop. Upstairs is quiet and has great views of... More

Good breakfast. Not awesome but good. Waffle eggs bacon and fruit. Coffee was decent. OJ was fresh. Would give them another chance.

It's fine. Nothing to write home about. Service was efficient but not very friendly. Food was just ok. Wouldn't rush back to be honest.

Found this by chance walking around looking for somewhere for breakfast and so glad we did. Our first few days we ate in fancy restaurants, and at fancy prices. Then we stumbled upon the Palace. Seeing on the menu all of what we had eaten the previous day's at less than half the price. Thinking maybe smaller portions, what a... More

There is nothing exceptional about this restaurant but overall you get what you paid for and the service is fast. I chose a turkey wrap and had the sauce separately for some reason. The food was ok. I didn't try the handful of crips thrown on the side. The location is good and it is easy to find.

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.
