    Desperado Diner

    They need a real chef like their neighbor's that surround them. Thank god for Green Kitchen, Three Star & especially Gracie Mews, Gracie Corners is on the top as well.

    Quickest Delivery I've had in a long time

    Coming off of a horrible stretch of bad delivery experiences from 24-hr diners on the UES, this was a refreshing delivery experience. I have to admit, I was spectacle upon first reading the reviews, but out of dire hunger I ordered from here on a whim and tried it out. Delivery came in under 20 minutes (unheard of in this neighborhood), food was hot & delicious, and the delivery man couldn't have had a more pleasant demeanor. As a marketing professional, I place a heavy emphasis on customer service and customer appreciation, and this place definitely exceeded my expectations in that realm. Also, very friendly and patient on the phone. This is a rarity, especially amongst the 24/7 diners on the UES, and I am happy I finally found a new "go-to" delivery spot for late night cravings.

    The best burgers and club sandwiches

    I live not far from cafe 79 we eat there three times a week (family of five) my children love their burgers i love the club sandwiches but to be honest i tried just about everything in this place and i would tell you i love their food. They also have great service.

    Low budget

    Food here is pretty weak. This diner was great years ago but has gotten left in the dust over the years.

    Turkey Club

    I payed (for me) a pretty hefty price for the Turkey Club. I basically got a lot of bread, lettuce, and tomato. I didn't get very much turkey -- very little to be honest. I was pretty mad because I paid good money for it and felt a bit wronged. I took 3 pics of it just in case I ever had to show anyone.
