Morning Star Cafe
Posted by stray turtle on 03/03/2008
The Morning Star Café is a good New York coffee shop / diner. The entrees are respectable well prepared decent meals. The breakfasts are adequate, the sandwiches are good, and the chef's salad is more than I can eat. There’s a benchmark for a New York diner – hassle free service, decent food, and reasonable prices. I’ve recently become a fan of their takeout deliver service – it’s fast and just the right thing when you can’t bear another Chinese or sushi serving. If you are looking for diner style fare, Morning Star makes the benchmark. Don’t expect more than a diner though.

The food is great, but early morning ordering is not so great. With me working the overnight shift, by 5a/6am my dept is sooooo hungry, so we decided to try this place for breakfast. Today is the 5th day we've been calling this place and no one answers the phone..(isn't this supposed to be a 24hr restaurant???) Working on the east side of manhattan, our delivery options are very limited @ 5/6 in the morning. Update: they finally answered the phone only to tell me they're not 24hrs (only on Fri/Sat) Unbelieveable!!!

Delivered late right before closing around the holidays. Guy was really nice on the phone. Definately went the extra mile. Fast delivery, and even included mustard without asking for the ruben. Ruben was good. What more could you ask for?

Excellent diner food, nice atmosphere, friendly service. The kitchen turns out some really fine omelettes, especially the florentine. They also use a really good tomato sauce on their Italian dishes. I wonder if they make it themselves. I often order the marinated chicken parmigiana. It's better than any breaded version I've ever tasted, but the cook is a little heavy-handed with the mozzarella.

Just came back from New York City, where we ate every breakfast at this restaurant. Very good food for the price, with nice staff. Would go back anytime. Fast and friendly service.

We were originally going to try the New York Luncheonette as it was recommended on here, but there were queues out the door. One of the locals coming out of the diner suggested we go to the Morning Star just round the corner and I'm glad we did. The food was great. Can't imagine it could be any better at our original destination. Thoroughly recommended.

I have been a loyal Morning Star fan for the past several years, and plan on continuing to do so. Whether in the restaurant or over the phone, my orders are always met with friendliness and prompt delivery. All of their menu items are delicious and their bacon is spectacular. I recommend Morning Star for anything you are craving day or night!
