        Ess a Bagel. About 2 blocks away, on Third Avenue. Google the exact cross street. Good bkfst options, crowded small tables, self service, but a great option for midtown. Most other spots in that area are none too good and well overpriced. Have fun.

            Dishes is close and has everything you are looking for. The variety is great, as is the quality.

              Ess-A-Bagel, Esssssspecially if you are from out of town. They have some of the best bagels in Manhattan and excellent smoked fish and cream cheeses. It's a short walk to 3rd Ave.
              Ess-A-Bagel = Eat a bagel in Yiddish.

                When I lived in the 'hood and my parents would visit I'd take them to Brasserie. Not super cheap but cheaper than Waldorf. Great for breakfast.
