Breakfast recs before Sex in the City Tour

HalfBaked Aug 3, 2007 10:13 AM

We have an 11 o'clock booking for the Sex in the City tour on the west side of 5th avenue between 58th and 59th streets in front of pulitzer fountain. We are staying at the NY Hilton at 54th & Avenue of the Americas and hoping for something in the area as we'll be on foot.
No budget or dietary concerns.
Thanks!

        Is it really? Mom is wanting to go there, but the reviews are so mixed on here.

          It's a love-it-or-hate-it kinda place. Most first timers love it. Jaded NYers hate in. I think you should try it. Make a reservation for 9:00. It's not a quick in-and-out kinda place, and that'll also give you some time to recover afterwards (it's a big meal!).

                Perhaps Cafeteria is at its best for breakfast, but it's still mediocre! It's also nowhere near where she needs to be.

        Thanks for the rec mrnyc, but Blumie is right - it's nowhere close to where I need to be.

        However, we noticed that Sarabeth's is also closeby. Which, in y'alls opinion is better?
        To give you some preferences - I love the sweet and savory combination for breakfast, and Mom has no sweet tooth whatsoever. I also love the bread baskets I noticed some places offer.
