We found this place after walking the Highline and en route to the 9/11 memorial. It has a lovely family feeling and the coffee was great. We did not eat there but the food looked OK. The pressed copper ceiling is of historical architectural interest.

We pass this place very morning on our new morning walk route. Once we gave in to the delightful-sounding breakfast menu, we've returned twice in a month. Forgive me for telling you this, but their bacon is absolutely delicious -- crispy, meaty, not too salty,...More

This is a great neighborhood breakfast place. Eggs, pancakes, muffins, omlettes. One draw back is that is way over in the west village but it is a short walk to the Hudson River from here. Great prices, excellent service. Second time I was here....will be...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
