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.
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.

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.

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

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.
