Breakfast in the UWS between 100th and 110th Street. Any recommendations?

  1. Absolute Bagel
    Hungarian Pastry Shop (a little north of your preferred area)

      I'd skip the Hungarian. The pastries aren't great, people like it mostly for the ambiance.

      Absolute for bagels; Samad's Gourmet for muffins; Silver Moon for croissants; Crêpes on Columbus for, well, crêpes; Zanny's for the breakfast wraps; Noche Mexicana for the huevos a la mexicana.

    2. Just south of your area, but Malecon (98th and A'dam) has great Spanish breakfast. Silver Spoon bakery on B'way and 105 is also a good bet.

        You mean Silver *Moon* bakery on Bway and 105? Yes, they have the best croissants. But it's really small (in terms of sitting down). We also like Henry's (also Bway/105-ish). It's not spectacular but it's pretty good for omelettes and such and they have a large outdoors area.

      2. Broadway (?) Diner (101-102 on Broadway) (correct me if I have name wrong) ..I lived on 102 and WEA for 2 years and we nicknamed it the "funky" diner to distinguish it from the upscale place a couple of blocks down. Eggs, good rye toast, coffee, crusty employees who want to attach but can't if you only visit periodically. But the very best thing is -- UWS intelligencia arguing about anything and everything on a daily basis. I would write at home alone and go listen to these folks while I ate and edited and go home feeling I'd learned something.
