      Norma's only if you like that atmosphere.

      For something infinitely better and so much less over-rated, try JANE in SoHo, 100 W Houston Street. Get the French Toast on Sun and you won't be dissapointed.

      I hear Cookshop is another good choice.

        Right, only if you like "that" atmosphere, and incredible food....

    2. I have some great recs, but I haven't lives in NYC for 4 years, so I'm not sure if they're still open, but when I was there I LOVED these palces. 1) Danal on 10th St at 3rd Avenue. It has a French countryside feel and a back patio. 2) Old Devil Moon I think 13th between Avenue B & C. They have AMAZING sticky buns. 3) Kitchenette on 121st and Amsterdam, they have unusual omlettes.
      Enjoy!

        All still open. I haven't been to Kitchenette in a while, but was good a few years ago. I still like Danal.

          Country in Carlton Hotel on Madison and 29th is great!

          iirc, old devil moon only serves breakfast on sat & sun.

        3. Ditch Plains on Downing St in the West Village is open early for breakfast. It's nice and quiet and has a great neighborhoody feel to it in the morning.

          1. 9th Street Market on 9th b/t 1st and 2nd. AMAAAAZZINNGG. Show up before 1030 however to avoid a line... I cant imagine much competing with this place..

            1. Definitely Jane in Soho.....they have scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and mascarpone...TO DIE FOR!!!! And cool atmoshphere too with good music but packs up on Sundays you will def need a reservation
