Since so many hotels in New York don’t include a breakfast in their price, the visitors often ask the question – ‘Where can I have a tasty breakfast in New York’? However, even if the hotel provides such an option, it’s highly recommended to skip your standard hotel breakfast on some days and choose any of the restaurants and cafes in New York. The correct breakfast is just what conveys the spirit of the city – it will help you to fully plunge into the city and see the real local life of the New Yorkers.
The following locations offer a delicious and healthy breakfast in New York. If you travel with 14CARS, then it will be easy to reach them early in the morning without wasting your time.
This is an amazingly tiny and cozy place in Greenwich Village located at the intersection of Grove Street and Bleecker Street. The compact menu won’t make you choose painfully long, but without exception, whatever you choose there, each dish will be incredibly tasty and beautiful.
If you came there as a loving couple or alone, then the best thing to do, instead of sitting down at the table, would be to occupy seats right behind the bar, as in this case you will have the opportunity to watch documentary film about the work of one popular New York restaurant somewhere in the non-tourist area of the city.
The establishment is very popular among the New Yorkers, thus most likely you will have to stand in line while waiting for the free seat.
