My morning breakfast hangout in NYC. A traditional cafe with eggs anyway you want them. Plus lots of lunch and dinner choices. A real locals place including the local NYPD. Good value for Manhattan. Recommended

Had the spinach omelette with potatoes. Great dish and the coffee was just right. It’s a nice spot for some coffee and quick bite to eat. Staff was helpful and quick. Will definitely go back.

What can I say about a diner, late on a Sunday morning, that is crowded, only takes cash, has menus that cannot have been printed within the last 5 years, and whose staff will ask customers to please move on when they have finished eating...More

Located on 8th avenue in the West Village, this diner, run by South Americans remains an authentic diner with an affordable, authentic American breakfast. So, if you're trying to avoid the "chain" restaurants that have taken over NYC, make the trip downtown where you'll find...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
