Breakfast in the City

Okay CH friends, here's the deal. Back here in the UK my breakfast usually consists of a Starbucks and not much else. So, when visiting NY I like to have a real treat and eat breakfast most days. It puts me in good stead for the day's walking and exploring ahead!

For our trip next month we have the opportunity for 3 solid breakfasts, Monday - Wednesday. One day will be Clinton St Baking Co. - I don't care how long we have to queue, I'm having me some blueberry pancakes!

The next two days are up for grabs. Currently considering The Smith, Cookshop, Penelope... Must feature eggs, pancakes, bacon, french toast.

What am I missing? Any strong feelings about the above possibilities?

Any part of the city considered.

Thanks guys!

      1. I really like Grey Dog cafe--added bonus that they're open early and have better coffee than most.

          I also love Grey Dog! Any location!

        2. Would you consider a NY breakfast of lox and bagels, rather than the food you mention above? Barney Greengrass is a great option, if you are open to it.

            Barney Greengrass' lox & eggs & onions is not to be missed.

              Love bagels and a schmear but alas I am allergic to fish & seafood. Love the taste but it doesn't love me!
