INSIDE: Need Quick Healthy Food in a flash to feed hungry kids in New York City? Visit Speedy’s NYC Delicatessen. 

SPEEDY’S NYC is the BEST fresh food cafe deli & take out in New York City central. 

THIS place, SPEEDY’S NYC Deli, was a lifesaver at the end of a long day exploring New York City in freezing post-snow-dump temperatures.

We’d criss-crossed Central Park, from one playground to another, weaving in and out on our way to the Children’s Museum Of Manhattan, and back for a Times Square visit and Madame Tussauds.

My hungry boys were in no shape to sit in a New York diner, a New York pizza shop, or any kind of fast-food joint.

  • I needed to find healthy takeaway food in a flash.
  • Food we could carry back to the hotel and eat in the comfort of our room.
  • Where they could sit and chill out in front of the TV watching American kid’s cartoons on the tv if necessary.

This place saved this day, and more. Details below.

Guide to Speedy’s NYC Diner and Take Out

On our fast-tracked walking route towards back to the hotel, my eyes were on high-alert.

Then, near Macy’s Department Store, on the corner of Broadway and West 32nd Street, I spotted my miracle!

Speedy cafe, a quick-service take-out restaurant, right in the middle of New York City, with a HUGE menu of fresh food the kids would eat.

I wish I could find one of these take out diners on every corner of every city across the globe.

Seating Upstairs at Speedys NYC Restaurant too!

If your kids haven’t yet reached the ‘hangry’ (hungry/angry) stage , and can cope with sitting down to eat on the run, head up the stairs.

You’ll find a dining room with tables, chairs, and window seat views of NY City. The location is superb.

There’s also a condiments station, where you’ll find serviettes, salt, pepper, milk, and sauces for your food.

Toadstool Rating – Speedy’s NYC Cafe

For a quick and easy meal eating with kids in New York, this place wins hands down.

The only downside is the single-use plastic plates and cutlery when eating in.

Hopefully that changes soon!
