breakfast near NYU
any ideas for a good breakfast near Washington Square/NYU?
NoHo Star and North Square are my standbys: North Square is a v. conservative but pretty good hotel restaurant (in the Washington Square Hotel), though admittedly I haven't been in a few years, while NoHo Star is just a little more upscale, with a great atmosphere and fabulous eggs and french toast but occasionally meh service.
Grey Dog is great, period, though I've never had their breakfast. Very hectic at lunch, and it's an order-at-the-counter place, but again I wouldn't know if it's quieter in the AM.
For something quick, Patisserie Claude, Birdbath, or Amy's. 'ino is open for breakfast if you want a sit-down place.
