  1. Tick Tock Diner is just around the corner, open 24 hours, and serves decent diner food. If it was me, I would go the extra distance to Le Grainne Cafe on 9th @ 21st. Antique Cafe is a bit closer, and a step up from the Tick Tock; it's just not my top pick.

    Le Grainne
    183 9th Ave, New York, NY 10011

    Antique Cafe
    55 W 26th St, New York, NY 10010

    Tick Tock Diner
    481 8th Ave, New York, NY 10001

    1. Can you walk to Koreatown (Koryo Dang)? Do you like Asian pastries (there's a Fay Da at 257 West 34th)? There are also some pastry options, I think, at Macaron Cafe.

      1. Artisinal (high end) and Penelope (midrange) are both within walking distance east of MSG.

          Oh--I should note: Artisinal only serves brunch on weekends. Penelope serves it every day.

        2. Skylight Diner - 34th btw 9th and Dyer
