You can always get a seat. The egg creams are almost as good as the disco fries. The breakfast is perfectly perfect. Like you imagine when you think “breakfast.” The staff are warm and familiar.

Lol they charged $16 for chicken fingers and fries to go. That would have been fine given the expensive area, but they didn’t even include sauce or napkins. What a joke

Do you want good food, good service and an actual New York City experience? Then eat where the locals eat. Hector's Cafe & Diner. This is my go-to no nonsense diner. It's located right under The Highline.

It was the only place open at 6 am in the morning around the High Line. The local coffee shops did not open until 7 am. The 5 stars are for being open 24/7 for the late night and early morning workers.

After taking the red-eye into the city, I thought walking the High Line would be a good idea. Suddenly, I was famished and in need of sustenance. Hector’s was one of the only places open at 7:30 a.m. on a Saturday.The pancakes hit the spot; eggs were fried to perfection; the sausage, although slightly charred was delicious.

Looking not to spend and arm and a leg for a meal— this is it. As far as diners go it’s not anything special— the history of the place can account for why it’s still there. Food is average, ordered some pub grub and a gyro and it was subpar. Service is fast, friendly, and the prices are low for that part of town. It’s a very clean little establishment but it’s just a diner.

Hector's Cafe was very nice. Good service, good food. I went for breakfast so it was nice and quiet but it's right by clubs and a biergarten so I'm sure that it's ride with vampires each night.

Absolutely love this spot ... have only ever been for breakfast but it’s great value -good portions of bacon or sausage and eggs perfectly done. Never found the staff rude, though I usually like to sit at the counter and talk with them. One of the last of its kind in the city, certainly the last in the area. Long may it continue

This is quintessential and essential NYC. An unpretentious joint with solid food, for locals, wanderers, and nostalgics. The vibe is off the charts. This place has been here since the time when the meatpacking district really packed meat. There's a counter with barstools, white restaurant plates, opaque plastic water glasses, the works. Great staff, clean bathrooms. The vegan options are limited but the veggie burger (Prager Burger) was ok, with fresh lettuce and tomato and a nice pickle spear.

When we entered the facility, we were greeted by a fellow gentleman wearing glasses. He was pleasant and handed us the menu to look over. The owner (I think?) then took our order and The food was AWFUL!! He didn't follow the instructions of the order. And the condiments weren't on the sandwiches, they were in the bag. The sandwiches were DRY! The bread was so tough and dry and hard to eat. The fresh lemonade and ice tea was TERRIBLE. There were only packets of sugar to put in the drinks and that couldn't even save the taste. Needless to say, we won't be back, and if the other 1 star reviews say the same about this owner, this is not how to run a business.

This is a great great little spot located near the South end of the High Line elevate park. Just around the corner from the Whitney Museum. In fact it sits under the elevated tracks. Good solid dinner food. Fast and friendly service. Prices are a little high but food is good. I would go again if in the area.

Funky smell, bad service and terrible food ( tomato sauce was directly out a of can and it was soon sour. They tried to charge us different BN price than indicated on the menu. They did the same with the other table next to us. Seems to be normal for them. I don't recommend them at all.Oo

I pass by this place all the time and I thought to myself that I'm going to try this place today. It took me a while to decide what to order because it was expensive for the type of food. But I thought, what the heck, I'll still try this place and support this neighborhood business. I don't know if the owner was having a bad day and started yelling at one of his staff. Then I commented about the food to the owner and he blew up in my face as if he were about to attack me. What the heck??? Keep up this level of service and you'll find your business boarded up real soon sir!

Hector's Cafe is a cozy, old-timey, friendly, and reasonably priced haven in a neighborhood that has been "upscaled" to the max. My tuna melt was delicious and generous! I took half of it home.

I went in for a quick sandwich before going back to an event. They literally served a white couple before me. I wasn't offered water at all. I wasn't greeted. I got this, "menu?" The white couple was greeted and offered/given water. I left. These restaurants will keep getting exposed for bias.

The reality from the most fussy eater/shopper :) it really is all about snobbery, dress it up anyway you like, but if you like to be overcharged for poncey waiters making a fuss over you, then go across the road.. if you like good simple food at reasonable prices served in a clean warm comfortable homely environment, by down to earth friendly people, Then Hectors is it … I didn't snap a pic of my food as it was mostly evening meal I had & I took it down to the river to eat but if you fancy a challenge, then my fav was the meatball & parmesan hero sub... don't have the fries unless you have a couple of hours to sleep it all off :) well done guys. keep it up please and i'll try to come back some time.. I just need to save the bus fare :)

I thought this was a hole in the wall from the exterior, but it's surprisingly spacious inside. Underneath the Highline, by far the best value in the neighborhood!!! Straightforward, solid diner food. I had eggs, sausage, rice and beans yummy! The burgers served to my neighbors looked delicious. One of the few restaurants that has survived the crazy changes in the Meatpacking District, come support this NYC institution, then walk off the calories on the Highline!!!

Great interactive theater performance. The juxtaposition of the beautiful foliage and the drunk bar fights provided a unique viewer experience. I thought it was an interesting choice of the director to have the man watching us as we were watching the play. It held a mirror to society and our consciousness. They make mean chicky nugs.
