this place is always packed on the weekends, especially for brunch, so pick a weekday to try. everything is homemade and you can taste the difference. truly amazing mac n cheese!!

Although the food has been good, the service has consistently been poor. Apathetic wait staff who always seem to have a attitude problem. They've always been rude, never come around, and bite your head off when you call on them, that its made me realize that there are a million other equally good breakfast/brunch joints in the city that I'd much rather go to. Fred's across the street and Kitchenette by columbia are pleasent and serve good food.

I had a wonderful experience here. The staff was friendly, the food delicious and the mood perfect. I really couldn't ask for better bacon, obviously done in house. Of course, I did chose a week day to experience this delightful little place, not a "brunch" day when locals get all bitchy about deciding to stand in line.

I agree with the previous reviews. This restaurant used to be worth the wait. While service was never great, it's now downright terrible. On the day that I visited, this could be in part due to the women who brought in 6 children who they didn't sit with or even near and all waitstaff was babysitting and serving them. However, the other patrons had nothing to do with the raw egg in the "hole-in-the-bread" that I ordered. Not just underdone, but the whites were still clear. I couldn't flag a server to point out the problem. We had to ask the bussers for more coffee. Not once during our meal did anyone check on us to see how we were doing, if all was OK, etc. I will not return and suggest that others avoid this establishment.

I don't mind waiting in lines; it's something you expect in this city. Usually it's because there's something worthwhile once you're out of the cold. "Good enough to eat" is not worth the wait or the prices. The fatty, fairly flavorless omlette was a highlight, accompanied by a side of edible pork sausage and crappy, dry biscuits. The worst menu item was the waffles. The were completely inedible, tasted like cardboard, and clearly came directly from a box out of the freezer. This is not what I expected for $10.50. Avoid this place, there are plenty of great spots in New York. Staying at home and having a fried egg on unbuttered toast would be more satisfying and less financially regretable.

A disappointment. Years ago this was a down-to-earth place to hang out for a quick bite. Now the place is seedy and worn, the food served dry, tasteless and tepid, and the "service" rushed, indifferent and clueless. There are so many wonderful places in the neighborhood these days, do yourself a favor and don't spoil your memory of this once-popular spot. It's a pity.
