Lexington Candy Shop

Diner in Upper East Side

Founded in 1925, this picture-perfect diner is a bygone slice of NYC. Slip into a booth or sit at the long counter amid the clatter of forks and the chatter of old-timers. Breakfast is served all day, as are reliable standards like burgers, tuna melts and milkshakes – plus egg creams and lime rickeys made fresh from the old-fashioned soda fountain.
