Brunch type food in the evening?

Hi folks, I'm looking for a place that serves tasty, wholesome tastes like mom cooked brunch style food on a Sunday evening. By Brunch style food I'm specifically referring to pancakes, french toast eggs, bacon etc.

We love a NYC brunch but as we don't touch down at JFK until 2pm we won't make a traditional brunch this visit.

We like diners and low key restaurants - nowhere fancy where you get sneered at for wearing sneakers!

Any ideas?

    1. Midnite Express, Second Ave at 89th St. They're open 24 hours, and serve breakfast items whenever. I was there a few days ago for a late brunch (2-3 PM) and had a good, hearty serving of pancakes, eggs and sausage. Very tasty and filling.

        Two more things:

        1) My Dad had breakfast food there around 10 PM.

        2) They deliver. I don't know what their delivery range is.

        As for non-brunch food, their chicken parmigiana is pretty good, as are their cheesecake and chocolate mousse.

      2. Permanent Brunch in the East Village. Haven't been, but brunch at dinner is their thing.
