  • Great place for lunch with one of the best Matzo Ball soups in the city. The French fries and the Split Pea soup arent bad either!
  • Best matzo ball soup in Manhattan. Chunks of chicken and noodles with your matza. Good prices, no frills. Sandwiches are just ok.
  • It used to be a ballroom, and chandeliers remain.
  • Cafe Edison...One of the many metropolitan restaurants mentioned in Charles Kipps' CRYSTAL DEATH.
  • Sit at the counter, pretend that you're local, eat great soup.
  • Eggs benedict / ham - magic !
  • Pastrami and eggs are fantastic!
  • Authentic non tourist spot with quick service.
  • Best Hot Pastrami sandwich
  • Cafe Edison is known for its Jewish diner fare. Their matzo ball soup is one of the better and most classically comforting versions we've had.
  • My favorite place for blintzes in Manhattan!
  • Best blintzes in town, for forty years.
  • Neil Simon set all acts of his play 45 Seconds to Broadway here.
  • Table minimum per person is $7, no maple syrup, no fresh orange juice and the dishes will remain in the table after you finish for a wile.
  • The best matzo ball soup in NYC!
  • Get the matzoh ball soup while you still can.
  • Love the steak and eggs, and everything else.
  • Last time I'll patronize this restaurant. Complete disappointment that not even the management can appreciate a regular.
  • Ana es la mejor... Es muy amable y hace sentir bienvenidos.
  • Ok for a coffee shop. Service leaves a lot to be desired. Cash only! ATM by register.
