We went in to wait for our party to assemble before a Saturday Broadway matinée - we just sneaked right in after having bought tix on Times Square. The place was awesome! Healthy selections (got my carrot juice! Yeay!), FREE tea/coffee AND juice or cocktail after 11 am; excellent bread! If you are careful about menu selections, you can't beat their prices! I mean, my friend got fresh coffee, a Bloody Mary, and a fancy clam chowder (clams come on a plate, and the waiters pour bouillon over it at the table) - all for $8 total! Omelets are fantastic, too. I can't believe that price/quality in the middle of Manhattan!
The waiters were nice, if a bit hassled - but then, the place was overcrowded the entire 2.5 hours we spent there.
