I am looking for a good cheap breakfast place somewhere
in the vicinity of Union Square...any suggestions?

    The Cafe at ABC Home is wonderful, great food in an
    antique-filled room (where everything is for sale) and
    it is usually not crowded except for take-out.

        I love the City Bakery, which I know has been written
        about on this site before. In the mornings they serve
        oatmeal and have a nice selection of fixin's. Their
        tarts are among the best I've tasted in NYC, and I very
        much enjoy their new lower-fat (but not quite low fat!)
        muffins--Blueberry and Cherry, both of which are filled
        with more than the standard portion of fruit. An added
        plus is that they use all organic flour in their baked
        goods, and use fresh ingredients from the neighboring
        market. It's also quite a nice place to sit in the

        And of course, they are famous for their hot chocolate.

          The City Bakery sounds worth a trip. Where is it

            Oops! Sorry about that. The City Bakery is on 17th
            street between Union Square and 5th ave. (closer to
            Union Square). It's on the south side of the street.

              Thanks for the follow-up. I was actually going to head
              over there but got side tracked and ended up eating
              lunch elswhere...but next trip in...
