Breakfast downtown?

  • 8

I've got a group of surly photographers meeting downtown for breakfast; not your high-fashion, trim-waistline types per se. We're looking for someplace with great morning chow, a comfortable atmosphere (can't rush these guys out of the booth in 20 minutes!), and perhaps even a good neighborhood for walking.

Ideas?

  1. The Pantry. Good hearty manly breakfast.

    1. Agreed. Be sure to order the sourdough toast and potatoes "well done" and avoid the ham if your're a ham lover. I find it watery and flacid, but with a great char that promises more flavor than the meat can deliver.

      1. Pantry is a good rec.

        Along the same lines, I would also suggest CLIFTON'S CAFETERIA - old fashioned, comfort chow and they'll provide you with your own meeting room for large groups.

        Oh and don't forget PHILIPPE'S for breakfast, where coffee is less than a dime!

        1. How about Langers....Mmmmm pastrami and eggs. YUM!

          1. Pacific Dining Car serves great breakfast fare. A little pricier, though.

            1. I second Pacific Dining Car - you won't be rushed.

              1. The Pantry or Pete's is good too.

                  I like Pete's, but unfortunately they don't serve breakfast (unless something's changed since last I was there ...)
