If you can get in a little bit early & beat the crowds, Ball Square Cafe is definitely somewhere you want to stop! The food is tasty and served up pretty quick, not to mention the large coffee bar lets this New York cawfee snob craft her perfect morning joe. :)
Service is good, if it's not full to the brim, in which case it is about average. The owner of the joint is always visible, greeting people at the door and assisting with the little things, which makes for a very welcoming atmosphere.
My recommendations go to the french toast/ pancakes delight (aka the one with all the fruit on it), which have always been my favorite.
