Any good breakfasts near Washington sq. park (Greenwich village)?

A Fish Called Wanda Oct 12, 2006 04:29 AM

We'll be staying in Greenwich Village near Washington Square park this weekend, and we need to find a good place to go for breakfast. A bakery with good coffee and morning pastries would be perfect, but all suggestions are welcome, as long as it's a place where we can sit down (so no carry out please).

    you MUST MUST go to Patisserie Claude (187 W 4th). Have a croissant, have a brioche, or perhaps a quiche. But what ever you have, I promise you it'll be pure bliss. I'd live in that patisserie if it were possible!

      Woman is absolutely right. Claude's is it. He used to be a mean bugger if you were a guy but he's become sof and/or senile in his old age, so he'll wave and possibly give you a grumpy french smile. Pain au chocolat is the way to go.

        Patisserie Claude is great. I also love Rocco's.

          Grey Dog's Coffee has good breakfast offerings and great lunch as well.

            'Ino for truffled eggs, Ditch Plains for create your own eggs benedict, Bing Lady Roll & Dough if you're insane like me (bings are technically pastries), I like Provence for a brandade brunch, and Balthazar is worth the walk. And of course, Claude's pain au chocolat.

              North Square has a wonderful, and reasonably priced brunch.
