Sadly this particular Manhattan Diner in Upper West Side is no longer there, though there is another of the same name not far away on Broadway. We were staying across the road in the Beaux Arts style Hotel Belleclaire (much revamped in the last few years) and since they did not have a restaurant, we were advised to come here for breakfast along with their other guests. The place had a pleasing ease-yourself-into-the-day atmosphere, but what I liked most was that Upper West Side residents also came here every day for breakfast. I rather felt that this easy cross-the-aisle conversation had been continuing for years, morning after morning, familiar, but not too familiar.

Such a wonderful contribution to this week’s challenge. 😀
Many thanks, Cee 🙂
Lovely “slice of life” shot Tish. I haven’t been to many diners, but loved the atmosphere in the few I have eaten in.
I was surprised how I took to the concept, being a bit sniffy over fast food.
I feel the same way, but (and it’s a while since I ate in a diner) i remember the food as being actual — well food — and not the industrially produced rubbish so much fast food has become.
You’re right. It was real food 🙂
This photo shows such a great atmosphere in the diner.
You completely caught the atmosphere !
Cheers, Anna 🙂
It has such a wonderful feel to it, Tish! Love the elegance of the lady diner. 🙂 🙂
Yes, such a smart hat!
