    The food is not good. They rush you out and it's cash only.

    Best Soup in Times Square!

    The Edison Café is one of the first places I was told I had to go when I moved to NYC in 1988. A regular hang out for theatre professionals before a show, almost every time I go I run into an old friend or see a celebrity currently performing on B'way who stopped in for a quick bite before the show. If you know what to order here, you'll leave stuffed to the gills with a smile on your face. In a word: SOUP! Hands down the best Matzo Ball, Mushroom Barley, Cold Gazpacho....the list goes on: all hot and fresh and delish! Potato Pancakes, Blinzes, Lox plate, Deli Sandwiches...all fantastic. And cheap! Don't go here for overpriced, nice nice, and pretty atmosphere. Go for the history, the simple but delicious Jewish favorites and the SOUP!

    Not recommended

    After reading positive reviews of this, we decided to go there, and we had high expectations. well, the service was lousy, they only bring half full cups of coffee, the cheeseburger was pre-cooked, we asked for our fries well done and that was ignored, my chef salad came in a bowl way too small so when i tried to mix it it fell all over the place, and even though the waiter saw a piece of lettuce fall in my coffee, he just laughed and did not bring me a new cup of coffee until i got up and searched for him to ask him to do so. then i had to wait ten minutes to get my bill, which did not come since the server was busy talking to someone behind the counter. plus the place was dingy and unappealing. and in addition, they only take cash - no credit or debit. what a disappointing experience in every respect.

    I ordered the lox platter, which comes with smoked salmon piled on top of a toasted bagel with a schmear of cream cheese. Delicious. Fantastic food for a great price. Service was a little brusque, but typical for a NYC restaurant.

    Best whitefish salad in NYC

    Stumbled upon this place many years ago when staying at the newly opened W hotel next door with my husband. (That tells you how long ago it was.) I tried the whitefish salad and keep coming back every time I'm in NY. I now have a new husband and I've turned him onto my favorite little NYC diner. Will be there this Sunday for my bagel and whitefish!
