Harrie's Gourmet Cafe

Their omelettes come just the way I order them, as does the rest of the order. I ask for unbuttered toast ,with butter on the side, and actually get it that way. Has nice variety on the menu. Wait time is appropriate for something made freshly. (I think it's under new ownership). All-in-all, a very good mid-town option.

I happened upon this place, as I was looking for basic diner fare. The food (breakfast) was not good. I ordered pancakes, eggs and homefries. My mother ordered the bacon, hash and eggs. How can you screw up basic breakfast food, you ask? The bacon was extremely overcooked (like bacon bits), as were the eggs. The homefries were barely edible. The pancakes were chewy. Service was so bad, I didn't even bother to send them back. There was apparently only one pot of coffee in the entire house because ordering a refill required the waitress to "make another pot." Steer clear of this abomination.

It just turns out , the best thing to happen wandering around the midtown NYC was to find this cute litlle cafe , just few blocks away from the heart of the city Times Square.All I had in my mind was Cheese Burger & fries, but I have been totally captivated by the Bakery goods available out there, one of the best cookies I have ever had, delicious cheese cake, not just that canoli, Oreo & Shortcake were equally tasty. Although I live in Upstate, I never forget to stop by, anytime I`m in NYC and always grab a pound of cookies to take home, my family loves it. I strongly recommend this cafe, especially the bakery. Let`s not forget very cheerful and friendly staff and a very fine atmosphere.

The waiter forgot half of our meals, then asked if we'd still like them as if he were doing us a favor by going and getting what we ordered. Then, when we got the bill, he had added a gratuity that we later found out from the cashier was not customary. Thankfully, the cashier did not charge us for this. The food was alright at best, but the prices were relatively reasonable. Nice-looking place.

I've ordered from Harries many times, being that I work in the area. The salad that I ordered today was the worst I've ever had from them. The salad barey had any arugula in it, Whatever it did have in it was brown and lifeless. The endive was also brown. The chicken, which was probably the most edible in the salad, was overcooked. And they forgot the dressing. Even the coffee came in a cheap cup that was leaking. This was terrible and a complete waste of money. This place is not what it used to be. Not recommended.

My first visit to NYC in July of 2006 brought me to Harrie's Diner, where I discovered the most outstanding dry and crumbly New York-style cheescake! I don't even remember what else I ate, because they have the best cheesecake on the planet! Unfortunately, when I returned a few days later to indulge again, they were temporarily closed! (Not sure why). But I will return! Definitely worth the trip!

I fell upon this small restaurant one rainy evening. My girlfriends and I were having a ladies night in NY. We decided to stop here and we were pleasantly surprised by how nice the waiter was. How enjoyable the atmosphere turned out to be. All in all, it turned our rainy night out into a day of fabulous sun shine.
