Five of The Best Breakfast Places in New York
1 - Sandwich at High Street On Hudson
This restaurant is open all day long with a solid menu that changes throughout the day, but breakfast, wow, breakfast at this place rocks. The sandwiches are stacked on homemade breads, sour doughs and wonderful fluffy biscuits that offer a refined take on some classic morning pairings. Sausages and eggs with cheese on pepper and sage biscuit is delicious, as are the freshly made pastries.
637 Hudson St
2 - Eggs at Atla
The new spot from Enrique Olvera and Daniela Soto-Innes is a place that has quickly taken over the breakfast scene in the local area. Mexican isn't what people normally consider when thinking of breakfast but New Yorkers are quickly realising that creamy quesadilla, coconut yogurts, charred avocados and huevos rancheros are the perfect breakfast hit.
372 Lafayette St
3 - Bagel at Russ and Daughters
Bagels rule in New York and if you want to start you day with a place that does them just right, crunchy, chewy and packed with succulent salmon, head to any of the Russ and Daughters locations. The place has been operating in the city for over 100 years, a track record we're proud to feature as one of our best Breakfast places in New York. Opt for the classic cream cheese with salmon – we like the sesame bagel but there's plenty of options.
Two Locations: The Cafe: 127 Orchard Street, The Shop: 179 E Houston St.
4 - Pastry at Dominique Ansel
We've featured his creations many times on Fine Dining Lovers, and for good reason. Dominique Ansel is the king of pastry in New York and he has the lines outside to prove it. Get ready to wait for a while if you want to snag some sweet treats at this place, for us it's worth the wait and nothing says good morning New York quite like an early morning Cronut.
189 Spring St
5 - Go Big at The Nomad
This is for that classy New York breakfast where every aspect is catered, leaving you to melt into your chair as you watch fresh coffee being poured and a delectable array of deliciousness being served. There's some serious range to the breakfast menu at The Nomad. Granola, oatmeal and mixed fruits offer that zesty, healthy hit, while fluffy french toast with maple soaked bananas and the egg sandwich - duck sausage and cheese on a freshly baked english muffin – offer up the heavy hits. Whatever you choose you're in safe hands.
