Weekday breakfast - north chinatown
Hi everyone. Our office recently moved to Grand St. near Elizabeth/Centre. Just down the street from DiPalo's. What is good for breakfast around here? (I am looking for things that I can pick up after I get off the train at Canal or Grand St. and take into the office, not a big sit-down breakfast). If you give me suggestions, I will definitely try them and report back.
Thanks. This morning I actually got pretty decent coffee at Acquadolci, right across the street from my new office! And fresh ricotta & sullivan st. bakery bread from DiPalo's - can't go wrong there. But I guess I was hoping to learn where to get good breakfast congee, rice crepes, any particularly good buns or other breakfast items. I've popped into a few bakeries but there are a lot of them and none have been standouts so far.
There's lots of pork bun options in the area (search the board of just fall into any Chinese bakery and have a try). Also, there's Oro on Broome and Mott for coffee and fresh-baked goods. There's also a Starbucks on Canal near Centre or Lafayette, Sadly, the Pancake House on Grand and Centre is kind of terrible. I live in the area and want to love it, but just can't.
