Breakfast in Midtown? 3rd & 53rd

milano14 Jan 4, 2010 06:59 AM

Going to be in NYC this weekend for a girl's weekend.
We're staying in east midtown and I'm looking for a good breakfast location for Sunday morning.
We'll be leaving later in the morning out of Grand Central. So somewhere in that vicinity would be ideal.
Looking for comfort food, casual breakfast.

    If you want near GC, try Pershing Square
    Or there is Ess A Bagel 51st and 3rd

      I think the Comfort Diner would work too - 214 East 45th. Quick walk to GC Sta.

        Is Penelope open on the weekends?
        On their website the menu only lists Monday-Friday.
