We're in town for the weekend staying @ the London NYC on 54th between 6th & 7th Ave. we're looking for someplace to walk out and have breakfast other than the usual deli suspects.

  1. The side cafe at Petrossian is a great place to sit over a pastry and a coffee. It's not a full breakfast, but I like the space. There's also Norma's at Le Parker Meridien.

    118 West 57th Street, New York, NY 10019

    182 W 58th St, New York, NY 10019

    1. If you don't mind taking a little stroll, walk over to 9th avenue, from 57th down to about 39th street there are a million good options. My favorites for brunch over there are Eatery, Nizza, Marseille, and El Centro.

      630 9th Avenue, New York, NY 10036

      630 Ninth Avenue, New York, NY 10036

      798 9th Ave, New York, NY 10019

      El Centro
      824 9th Ave, New York, NY 10019

      1. Bouchon Bakery in the Time Warner Center. It would be more of a brunch than breakfast, unless you take the bakery items to go

        1. One of my favorite breakfast spots in midtown is Certe (on 55th btw. 5th & 6th), 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.

          2. Walk to the Subway and head to Dominique Ansel or Buvette. Seriously.
