Breakfast on Monday in Midtown

Aargh. We have to meet friends on Monday for breakfast in midtown, specifically, between 39th and mid 50's, and east/west not more than 3 or so blocks from Fifth. Need recommendation for nice breakfast spot.

  1. Ma Peche serves breakfast but doesn't have a menu online; you may need to email to find out.

    db bistro moderne also serves breakfast.

    If you can go down to 37th, Ai Fiori may be an option.

    DB Bistro Moderne
    55 West 44th Street, New York, NY 10036

    Ma Peche
    15 W 56th St, New York, NY 10019

    Ai Fiori
    400 5th Ave, New York, NY 10018

    1. Pershing Square (on 42nd Street under the viaduct across the street from Grand Central) serves a very good breakfast (a la carte, not buffet). Busy, too, so I recommend a reservation.

      1. One of my favorite breakfast spots in midtown is Certe (on 55th btw. Madison & Fifth), takeout in the front and a hidden, sweet little dining room in the back, where they also prepare catering orders. Great if you want a step up from a coffee shop but not too fancy, great breakfast specials and home-baked goodies... FWIW, I really dislike Pershing Square, crowded and not very good food.
