jfk layover

Apologies if this has already been posted, but i'm on my phone and too hard to search. Have a 3 hour layover from 5am to 8am at jfk tomorrow. i'm coming from san francisco. using only public transit, is there anything open that time (anywhere in nyc) that'd be worth going to, and would get me back by 7am, or is it just not worth it? love all good food, pastries, desserts, drinks, coffee, etc...

  1. A three hour layover during rush hour on a weekday is nothing :( I haven't eaten in JFK in some years but just get some fuel. PLEASE don't try to go into the city. You could easily miss your flight. Oh, and don't forget that you'll have to clear security again and that can be brutal.

          You're going to cut it close, though.
          And, this subject has been covered in multiple prior threads.

          1. 5:00am - 8:00am? JFK? Don't leave the airport. I doubt Don Peppe's is open either but I'm assuming that was a joke.

              Not a joke: I misread the OP, thought it was 5-8 PM.
              In that case, looks like he's going to have catch some sleep or read a good book.
