Visiting from out of town, and after an early dinner then getting in late, I was looking for a solid, quick breakfast before starting work. EC did not disappoint. $6.50 gets you a monster egg, cheese and meat (bacon, sausage or ham) sandwich. Top it off with a cup of joe, and we're off to a great start for the... More

Awesome find on the Upper West Side. Great bakery items. My hotel offered a breakfast coupon so I went for breakfast one morning. The breakfast was average, but the lunch menu and bakery items looked great. Friendly staff.

Europan Café along 8th Avenue is a 24 hour café that serves deli food and all-day breakfast. It looks a bit worn in the inside, but that didn’t bother us much. Their breakfast fare is simple and fills the stomach in a comforting way. Nothing spectacular but nevertheless satisfying.

Stopped in for a rest and some food. We ate here twice.The prices were reasonable, and a nice selection, not a lot however enough to satisfy. The staff were friendly and helpful. The place was clean. Plenty of seating inside and out. Service is quick and easy. Prepared to order. I had a fruit cup which was fresh and tasty.... More

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
