Sure, you could go to AppleBee's or Bennigan's for a quick pre-theater meal, but why bother, when you can have a truly NY experience? And yes the staff is a little rough around the edges, just short of rude, but this is NY, not Kansas. Besides, isn't the staff rude at Peter Luger's? Now the food ain't Peter Luger's, but the food is not terrible either, and the prices are extremely affordable. If you also want to experience atmosphere straight out of NY's past, this is the place to go. So if you want a decent meal at very good NYC prices, in a truly unique atmosphere, then eat at The Cafe Edison.

These are among the best blintzes in the city. The service, however, left something to be desired. Cold food, inattentive service, rude staff.
Most trips to NYC include a visit to "The Edison." We ended up there after ditching the half-price theater txts line. Since it was cold, everyone had chicken soup and split sandwiches. My fish sandwich was fine. It's a crowded and fast-pace place, which is ideal if you have lots to do. It's also very reasonable. The manager was very nice and helped me with directions. I plan to go back next trip to NY.

The wife and I dropped by to try a dessert after we had dinner. The inside was interesting with light blue ceiling and pink columns with with scroll work. It was not your typical dinner. The only negative point was the paper signs on the walls of each boothe with minimum purchase $4.15. The inside was clean.

We visited the Cafe Edison after reading the reviews here and weren't disappointed. I wouldn't go as far as saying fantastic, the food was good and the aptmosphere was good too but it was pretty much the same as most NY diners - fast. It's definitely the place to go for a quick breakfast and considering the location the prices are very good. We didn't go back but that was only because we wanted to try out other diners. If staying in the Times Square area, give it a try.

Ten years of NYC visits and we're yet to tire of the Polish Tea Rooms. The atmosphere is incredible - the staff, the setting, the clientele - and the main reason for our continued patronage. The wonderful food and excellent prices are added bonuses. Forget your bland, could-be-anywhere-in-the-world tourist chains. This is the real New York deal. Go there!

When I was in college, we always stayed at the Edison, a quirky, charmingly shabby hotel. Cafe Edison is something of an institution in the area - it's informally known as the Polish Tea Room, and is an interesting hodgepodge of pale blue and pink plaster and coffee shop Americana. Neil Simon set one of his plays here, and fans of The Godfather will recognize the room immediately. BUT - sandwich prices are significantly lower than other Times Square eateries, and breakfast is flawless if you're not worried about triglycerides. Good kosher specialities, and just LOADED with theater types, students, and old actors recalling bygone days. What an amazing atmosphere!
