Hectors cafe will be closed Sunday's
One of my best place to have breakfast in the Meatpacking district Pancakes are so good and so big, french toasts are good too
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.
A traditional place, not ready-made, and nice french fries.
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
This is bad place. I don’t he is owner but he Abuse , he was extremely rude towards me .
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.
Fairly divey place. Food and service just okay.
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.
Tasty food, nice staff, and reasonable prices! The best combination a restaurant can have.
Great breakfest food. I love this place. Staff is always nice and the food comes right out. Even when they are packed they are fast. Love the deco it is timeless. Inly bad thing about this place is the bathroom is cold. Lol
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.
Good service, friendly staff and reasonable prices in what is fast becoming an overpriced neighborhood.
Subpar cleanliness with a B rating from the Department of Sanitation posted with on the side instead of the entrance.
tipically american diner, old atmospheare, you can seat eat a very tasty burger in authenthic way.
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.
Had great food here. Food came quickly. Pastrami Reuben was amazing
A classic diner in a vibrant district! Good prices.
Simple holdover surrounded by all the Highline action. Nice people, good food and good value. Good old fashioned diner.
Food is decent and service is nice. I would come back here again.
Is this the hectors cafeteria that jack Kerouac talked about in his book?
Excellent , patient service, reasonable prices, great location and a big hit with international guests
Don't let the word cafe fool you. This is a classic old-style diner and a refreshing change from the trendy bistros in the Meatpacking District!
Most expensive and bad food. O star.
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.
Great mom and pop place situated under the highline prices are as refreshing as the food and drinks 😀
Simple and good price
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
Great little diner tucked away in the Meat Packing district. Food came crazy fast and was very good. The side of bacon was fit for a lumberjack!
Great food. Amazing fast courteous service. Will be coming here again. Definitely a little gem tucked away in the meat packing district.
Just enter to the Cafe... OMG any food is so not tasty and not fresh... very disappointed Calamari and wraps ROTTEN!!!disgusting!!! Do not go there!!!
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!
Really bad experience... Bad service expensive food...
Loved it here. Good quality at a reasonable price.
Excellent food. Great service and quick! When in the area, must try. Yum!!!
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.
Worst milkshake I ever had. The service was not very nice either. The prices are probably better than most other places in the area.
nice breakfast good lunch a little bit pricey
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.
Good honest reasonably priced breakfast
They have excellent breakfast even at 2am when everything else in the neighborhood is closedown. Great ham and cheese sandwich, coke and chit chat about soccer is great combination for Tuesday morning. Excellent and quick service!
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!!!
No frills. Proper diner food, service & prices.
The food is just delish, I would invite anyone to go there and please try the rigatoni with their gigantic meatballs...ummm
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.
I've been going to this place for years. Best burger in the city at an unbelievable price..can't beat that. Great milkshakes too!! Cozy and friendly. Great service.
