we'd love someplace cool (not necessarily hip) and not too expensive for breakfast in the area tomorrow.

      A really good local spot is Columbine, at Broadway and White Street, right at the corner. (No relation to the tragedy.) Its very small but serves bkfst and lunch. It has only a few chairs at an elevated counter, along with a bench out front. Most everyone gets their food to go. It is very popular. The food is very well done. Simple. Terrific sandwiches on very good bread. I wish there was one in my neighborhood.

        Bouley Bakery Market has some good looking baked goods.

            That's good to know. I've only drooled over them while I'm waiting for a table for dinner at Upstairs!

          Not sure what you meant by "cool", but there is Bubby's and Landmarc in Tribeca that have sit-in breakfast. Most of the other places are grab-and-go or small cafes.
