Breakfast spot needed NYC

Please help, my husband has to take someone for a quick (45 min max) breakfast or coffee at 8am on a weekday as close as possible to Grand Central station. I was hoping for something besides a Starbucks, any ideas?

      Um, none of the places mentioned there are kosher.

      1. The closest Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf branches are at 55th and Park, or 39th and Broadway, which is a little far. Milk'n'Honey on 45th between 5th and 6th opens at 7am. Probably the best bet would be to find an upscale coffee shop immediately nearby, not particularly a kosher one, and for your husband to just get coffee.

        1. Mendy's dairy stand in the Grand Central food court opens at 8.

            I was also going to suggest that, as soon as I came across this post. Very convenient, especially if you're coming in to GCT in the morning.

              Mendy's. It's quiet in the morning, so they can find a able and talk.

          2. What about the Screme outpost that's on 42nd, I think between 5th and 6th?

              Screme on 42nd was inside D'espresso, which is no longer kosher (it was sold and the new owners didn't keep it kosher). I didn't know they opened up the Brynt Park location yet?

            2. Thanks for the input guys. Sadly Starbucks won out. Mendy's comes off as a bit too Jew-y.
