On one of the recent hot weekend afternoons, I brought my camera to Galaxy Diner, in the heart of Hell's Kitchen, on Ninth Avenue at 46th Street. Galaxy Diner is well located near all Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, including those on West 42nd Street, one of which was my evening theater destination. Angelo, Manager, and his very warm and spirited staff welcomed and served me with attention to detail. I had stopped by a couple of days earlier for a spinach and feta omelette, with a perfect cappuccino, and a photo of that delightful breakfast is included below. When I arrived at Galaxy to create this photo essay, they were still serving brunch, which runs 11 AM to 4 PM, Saturdays and Sundays. Weekend Special items from the Brunch Menu are photographed and described below, including Lobster Eggs Benedict and Steak Ranchero, both incredible brunch selections. You can also choose from a variety of fanciful and colorful cocktails to start your brunch with pizzazz. For my dish, I created a variation on the Bagel with Nova Scotia Lox and Cream Cheese, turning it into Nova Scotia Lox and Swiss Cheese with Olives, Onions, Lettuce, Pepper, Tomato, Cucumbers, on 7-Grain Toast, accompanied by an Iced Cappuccino.

Before I ordered my brunch, Angelo and his helpful staff brought out additional brunch dishes for the guests, with three shown below, Cheese Burger Deluxe, Greek Salad with Grilled Chicken, and Half Roast Spring Chicken. Galaxy Diner has an expansive, sleek bar, dark wood walls, comfortable, wide tables and booths, a sidewalk café, and casual décor, with a night sky-themed ceiling. A television is available for soccer and international sports. Galaxy Diner is open Sunday through Wednesday, from 6 AM to 1 AM, and, Thursday through Saturday, round-the-clock, 24 hours. There are also reduced price Lunch Specials, 11 AM to 4 PM, Monday through Friday, the same hours as their Weekend Brunch Specials. Stop by on the way to or from Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, and ask for Angelo or the Manager. Tell them you saw them on RobertaOnTheArts.com for a free beer or house wine with dinner!
