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.

    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.

      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.

      Pershing Square
      90 E 42nd St, New York, NY 10017

        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.

        55 West 44th Street, New York, NY 10036
