      Norma's is really amazing, I went there a few days ago while on holiday in NY and I loved it. I'd recommend the French toast with caramel sauce. They don't accept reservations by phone but you can use www.opentable.com to get one.

        Sarabeths is the original upscale breakfast restaurant in NYC. I once ordered the oatmeal with wheat berries and she came and talked to me to meet who was eating oatmeal in the summer. I love her she is the great cook and the most down to earth friendly restaurant owner. She is alike a mother hen over her restaurants and products. She makes her wonderful baked goods and jams.

          NORMAS is by far the best breakfast in NYC. Everytime i go there, i have an amazing meal!! my favorite dishes are the quesadillas and the berry risotto.
