I've been going here for years. It's my favorite bakery in the neighborhood. Everything is fresh and they try to locally source everything. And it's DELICIOUS. I dare you to try their blueberry muffin, or pumpkin loaf, or cinnamon bun!

Very atmospheric old-timey interior, attentive service. This is a lovely East Village family-run restaurant.

My wife had the chocolate chip pancakes and I had the BLT with avocado. Both were delicious. The Morning Glory muffin was good too. Crowded and dark but fast and friendly service with good food.

Got some food to go to eat in nearby Sauer Park. Loved the stir fry special that day and the iced green ginger tea a must. My daughter loved her tuna sandwich. The sever we had just started. She was a bit slow but everyone was personable and pleasant. I will go back.

I've tried several breakfast places during my work trips in NYC. Ciao for now is the best, catch a morning glory muffin and a small latte running to the office.
