Reasonable breakfast in midtown

emily_r Aug 20, 2007 08:02 PM

I've got my parents coming down to visit in a couple of weeks and they're staying their first night in a midtown hotel. I'm looking for some recommendations for breakfast spots before we head over to MOMA. I'm looking for something along the way (or not too far from it). I believe the hotel is on 49th and 7th. I know how touristy and over priced this part of town can be, so and suggestions for resonably priced cafes or diners would be great.

    does anybody have an opinion on the breakfast at prime burger? I know its known for its burgers, but it is a diner, with a good reputation for their pies...any thoughts? thanks!

      I believe its a little bit towards the UWS but check out Good Enough to Eat...its a great little restaurant that serves real traditional style omelettes and alot of fun breakfast choices. I had an applewood bacon and granny smith apple omelette.

        By a little, you mean in the West 80s! That's pretty far to go.

          My apologies, but in my opinion its a neighboorhood gem and is worth the walk! Anything in midtown will either be overpriced for what you're getting or not worth the hassle.

            i've heard good things about good enough to eat, but it really is out of our way. This will be a Saturday morning, so I can imagine the wait would be rather long.

        I went to La Bonne Soupe for brunch once and found it rather pleasant. They may have a breakfast menu during the weekdays.
