    Looking for Chicken and waffles? Theirs are amazing! Looking for authentic biscuits? They have incredible ones! One of the best breakfast/brunch places in NYC. If you go on the weekend, prepare for a wait. They don't take reservations. Try to get there during the week if possible.

    The place is decorated with the aura of a 50s cafeteria and a bit of industrial design. You can take a walk until you get a table, as you are notified by message when available. The menu has enough options to eat something suitable according to the time of day you go, your diet or allergies. The food ration is large, the taste is correct, but I would not highlight anything in particular, ok I would say. The tip is included in the check.

    I will say that their maple butter syrup is amazing and that the sweet breakfast menu is worth it. However, the second time I went, I ordered the biscuit sandwich without bacon. I was very clear when I said w/o bacon and the waitress even said it back to me to confirm. When I got my order it had bacon on it and I told the wait staff and they were very prompt about bringing it to the back and making me a new one. When they brought it back it was the same dish with a few small pieces of bacon still left on top. Obviously, if I was fine with taking off the bacon and just eating it, I would have. If the wait staff wanted to treat me like an idiot they could have done a better job with removing the bacon. The biscuit was also soggy, and the cheese grits tasted like plain, floury grits. Their espresso based drinks are terrible, not worth the money.

    This was place fine, but not as good as the hype. We came on a rainy weekday and it was only a 15 minute wait. If we had waited an hour we would have probably been more annoyed. We got the chicken and waffles and the country breakfast. Probably should have gone with the pancakes but neither of us were feeling it. The chicken was good, nothing to rave about but the maple syrup was unbelievable, I don't know what was in it but it was great. It was sweet and almost had a caramelized flavor. The country breakfast was 3 eggs, ham and a biscuit. Nothing more to really add except the fresh jam was really good.

    We loved this place so much we went twice on our trip and I will definitely come back here if I’m ever back in New York. Wait time: The first day (Friday) was about 45 minute wait at 10AM compared to no wait on the second day (Monday) at 12PM. Food: The blueberry pancakes was my favorite dish and already *know* I’m going to miss this considering I live in Toronto. The batter is amazing and is paired well with the maple butter that comes on the side. The blueberry topping however, got a bit overwhelming for my sweet tooth tolerance for me at the end. The second day we came here, I tried the chocolate pancakes, delicious but really decadent so I couldn’t finish it. Chocolate lovers, this is for you. Could be shared by two people, it comes in a stack of three. I also shared the chicken waffles with a friend. If you’re feeling savory with a little bit of sweet, this is for you! The batter for the waffle is amazing and the chicken is crispy. Honorable mentions- my friend ordered the Chicken Apple Sausage and we all loved it. Drinks We ordered the Con Leche— IT’S HUGE. But delicious. Service Staff is very friendly and easily attended to our needs. Mind you this restaurant is Cash Only!

    Expect to wait even on a weekday, but the blueberry pancakes literally melt in your mouth. So good. Girl next to me left half of hers untouched, and I wanted to pounce on her for how sacrilege it was to leave such good food behind. The fried chicken was also some of the best I’ve ever had. Crispy, wonderfully seasoned, moist, and a generous amount given the price. I ordered it as a side, so it may be different in the dishes.

    This place feels like a classic diner combined with a classy bistro. I came on a recommendation from a friend, with no other expectations. I ordered what I love: dessert. Apple Crumb was the pie of the day, so that's what I got. Absolutely delicious. Slightly warm. The staff wear shirts that say, "Made with Love and Butter." You can feel the love, and taste the butter. Phenomenal. In terms of service experience, it was a bit rough around the edges. The host was on her phone the whole time, and allowed me to walk right by and wander awkwardly around before a server asked if he could help me. After mentioning I'd never been before and I was checking out the place, he didn't offer me any suggestions or a menu or even a place to sit. So that flow could use some work, but I'm still pleased with my visit. In terms of comfort, the seats at the bar aren't the most ergonomic or comfortable, but when I tried one of the green seats around the edge of the restaurant, they were comfy as can be. I didn't want to get up! Bathroom is basic and doesn't require a key, although they might give you pushback it you aren't a customer. Enjoy!

    I've had the blueberry pancakes, different specialty pancakes, chicken & waffles. Everything is always delicious. The fried chicken is really good. The the maple butter syrup is like liquid crack. I wish I could just drink a gallon of it. On my last visit, my friend had the cheeseburger which she let me try. It was absolutely delicious. She also loves the Mexican hot chocolate. Oh, and the biscuits with homemade raspberry jam are heavenly.

    The pan-cakes in NYC and north of the bible belt. The pan-cakes are a luxury pancake and I highly recommend you get their blueberry topping, it beats out the strawberry or banana. It is also served with this highly addictive maple butter. Note of mention they won NYC food and wine festival sweets event competition one year, I think it was 2011, with upside down pear cake. They are also well known for their cakes/pies.

    This restaurant is definitely a good place to go if you're looking at going to see the Statue of Liberty or the 9/11 Memorial right after, since it's not too far away. For my meal, I got the Blueberry Pancakes and they were pretty good. The maple syrup complemented them very well. Nothing special, but still delicious nonetheless. The service was okay and the $15 price tag is a bit on the higher end. Overall, I left satisfied.
