I often have to stay near Times Square to visit businesses nearby. Bryant Park is my favorite place for breakfast before the busy day starts. But sometimes -- well, often -- it is too cold to eat breakfast in the outdoor park seating. Le Pain Quotidien is my backup for breakfast, or a cup of coffee, inside near the park.... More

We used to order take out coffee and food a lot and decided to check out the sit in option as well, we ordered sandwiches and quiches which seemed expensive but we were willing to pay for good quality and experience. We were shocked by the size of the quiche - literally two bites of quiche and some greens with... More

This place has a lovely atmosphere and selection of food. Sadly though, it is quite noisy which is the reason we did not return. It could probably be solved with noise dampers in the sealing, where all the piping is visible. The food is very recommendable. Thank you!

Ice tea was refreshing and open faced sandwich on a fresh baguette with shrimp, avocado and cheese was delicious. Service was superior and very nice atmosphere with reasonable prices.

This is a really nice place to sit down and enjoy breakfast midtown Manhattan. (They also do take-out and lovely Bryant park is just across the street and there are plenty of chairs and tables free for the public to use along side the lawn in the park.) In fact, we had the best breakfast so far on our three... More

Good bread and hot beberages, but very few options for a brunch. Just Benedictine eggs and that is it! A little crowded and the service not too good. One visit is enough.

Very good brunch right across Bryant Park. Quiche is Yummy, plus good mimosas and coffee. Not cheap but definitely worth it. Ambiance and service very nice as well.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
