MY NEW YORK ADVENTURE A-Z
The back street diners in New York are the absolute dogs. In British terms that means that they are very delightful, the food is plentiful with very generous portions and they don’t dig into the spending money too much.
During our five days in NYC we dined out for breakfast and lunch at typical New York diners.
Our first morning in the Big Apple we arose at 4am, showered and headed out for breakfast at 6am.
The City that never sleeps, does indeed never sleep and our first diner was Café Edison which was close to our hotel at the back of Times Square.
Firstly, the first thing you should know about diners in New York City is that coffee is unlimited. UNLIMITED. Not only that but when you get to the final dregs of a cup, the waiting on staff come round with the coffee jug and give you refills without you having to ask for it. I had died and gone to coffee heaven.
Secondly, when you ask for pancakes and bacon for breakfast. You get pancakes fit for a King and plenty of them.
I’m not saying that the other American cities that we visited didn’t have the same portions or amazing food, but New York was our first leg of a trip which took us to Connecticut, Boston, Toronto, Seattle and Vancouver so everything after this we compared to NYC.
