We find it hard in New York to truly still find that classic diner vibe that’s not “edgy” or “with a twist.” EJ’s is the spot for you if you feel the same. With the best breakfast on the Upper East Side, it’s known for bringing back American staples like shakes and blue plate specials.

“I never have time to sit down to breakfast. But if I did I would go to EJ’s Luncheonette for an omelet.” Francois Payard
