coffee shop/diner near the Kitano

  • 6

I'm staying this weekend in the KItano, on Park and 38th. I stayed there a few years ago and could have sworn I walked to a coffee shop/diner for breakfast on Madison - I thought it had "moon" in the name but have had no luck with a search. I didn't think it was as far as the skylight diner. Can anyone help with the name, or other nearby suggestions (not Starbucks) -
thanks!

  1. I FOUND WHAT I NEEDED NO NEED TO REPLY - THANKS!!!

    1. I am guessing that you found Moonstruck Diner. Another good choice would be Scotty's Diner on Lex and 40th. It's not as fancy but excellent.

      1. Well since you asked for other suggestions, I am going to reply. Lucid Cafe is also nearby- not a diner, but good coffee and OK pastries.

          Lucid is one of my favorite places for coffee but definitely not a breakfast place. It's tiny with only 2 tables.
          If you want an interesting eclectic breakfast head down Lex to Penelope.

        2. This is a great list of options that are not far from your hotel including several breakfast suggestions:

          1. I hope you are going to eat at Hakubai in the Kitano.
            FYI the chef of Kyo Ya used to be chef there.
