Breakfast near MoMA

I'm looking for a good breakfast place near 5th and 53rd. It looks like there are several hotel restaurants that are more formal than what I want and more pricey. Any ideas between 8th and Lex Aves in the 50s?

  1. If you are up for going a little further north - Bottega del Vino on 59th just east of 5th is a great place to have a more casual breakfast - they have a website - excellent coffee, pastries, panini.

    1. Ellen's Stardust Diner is on B'way & 50th.

      Pigalle, the French brasserie, on 8th, near 48th, serves breakfast.

      1. Lou's Cafe
        53rd and 6th Ave.

        I've never been for breakfast, but I love their lunch menu

        1. Before going to MoMA we had breakfast at Europa Cafe (See and we liked it so much that we went back for lunch. Very good selection, breakfast for $5 ! Lunch: Customized salads, soups and sandwiches. Inexpensive, fresh and good. Many locations.
