Breakfast served all day. Even with breakfast you get a mescaline salad on the side, nice touch. Everything seemed good and fresh. I ordered eggs Benedict which were cooked perfectly and was impressed that I could choose between hollandaise or chipotle sauce. The only issue...More

When you are looking for comfort food on the upper East Side, NYC, the Corner Cafe & Bakery is the place. A great place for breakfast and brunch. A very good selection of sandwiches, hamburgers and salads. Don't forget to check the desserts.

Had an egg bagel sandwich- very good. Staff was less than friendly. Omelette was good. Pricing was ok. Very loud coolers sitting very close to seating area. Low rating more due to staff and noise of coolers.

Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most
livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
