We were staying in a hotel close by and found the Premier Cafe/Deli very convenient. It is especially good (in my view) if you want a cooked breakfast. Their eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast is good value and served quickly.

Lox, cream cheese, and a bagel - melt in your mouth lox, perfect bagel. Good coffee. Real dill pickle. I walked over 5,000 steps to get here and I'll have to walk another 15,000 to work off the bagel, but completely worth it. It's got...More
