Long Island City Great Breakfast Spots Please

eenie1 Aug 13, 2013 05:01 AM

Good morning! I will be staying this week in the are of the Queensboro Plaza subway stop and need some delicious breakfast recs. Not looking for a fancy place rather somewhere that really makes oatmeal, doesn't use quick oats, has some good fruit for the oats, knows there way around an egg white omelet, and potentially has fabulous coffee. Will take separate breakfast and coffee spot recs. I don't mind walking! Doesn't have to be directly in the area but close by would help =)! THANK YOU!

    Queens borough plaza area is so desolate in terms of restaurants it may as well be the Sahari desert

        Breadbox Cafe is fairly close. Great oatmeal!

          M. Wells Dinette makes fantastic oatmeal, seriously fantastic oatmeal. And it comes with foie gras.

              LIC Market has great breakfast pastries but I've never had oatmeal there. The chef there is really excellent.

                Thx Pookipichu!! They do have steel cut oatmeal on the menu however I think I’ll be putting that aside for a day for some eggs and greens and whatever else looks delicious!!
