John's Coffee Shop

No competition for The Comfort Diner after all. Orange juice was sour, English Muffin used for eggs benedict was stale - when toasted became so hard it couldn't be cut at all - even with a steak knife. Forget it!

Beautifully redone. Great atmosphere, lots of light and quiet. Great new menu with VERY good food. Complete meals and brunch all for one price without an add-ons. SUPERIOR to The Comfort Diner's dark noisy cave of a place. Lots of luck - I'll be coming here every Sunday morning now.

John’s Coffee shop has been sold. The inside is being fixed up to make a more appealing dining experience so you can feel like you are eating at an exclusive restaurant on Madison or Upper East Side. The wait staff is friendly enough, but don’t expect any extras. The quality of the food and the presentation have improved so have the PRICES. Tourist will not know the difference, but the locals will. Since coffee shops are a dying breed, here is another one that bit the dust.

In a city where low key family run restaurants are slowly disappearing it's great walking into a place like John's. The corner location with wall to wall windows provide an airy atmosphere and are great for people watching. The wait staff is terrific , the owner greets you when you walk through the door, and the food is just what you'd expect. It doesn't pretend to be more than it is - a friendly neighborhood coffee shop. Thank goodness. Places like this are a rare treat.

The food is great. The prices are unbeatable. Best lemonade you'll ever have in your life. Service is fast. No frills no fuss. Real food. It is what it is.

After a recent face lift, this place caught my eye as an option for breakfast/brunch on the weekend. It's not fancy - strictly diner fare people - but for a low cost satisfying meal it hit the spot. No innovation here - but what we ordered came out and was delicious - an omlette (not overcooked and moist), toasty toast (yes, you know as well as I sometimes toast is not toasted), yummy skillet potatoes, a well made chicken salad sandwich, and a nice plate of pancakes. So, yep - I would say if you just want a reliable, steady diner with well prepared food, this place does the job. Another plus - nice owner and wait staff.
