Staff Picks: Our Favorite Breakfasts in NYC


Where to go for the first meal of the day.

We tend to eat breakfast less often than we should at Serious Eats, a shame we kept reflecting on as we gathered our favorite breakfasts in the city. In the end our choices come down to the essentials: bagels, pastries, egg and cheese sandwiches, and other basics (okay, with some wild cards too) that define breakfast in this city.

As with all our Staff Picks, our choices reflect individual staffers' favorites, not our definitive assessment of the very best New York. See them all in the slideshow above or jump straight to a slide below. Then tell us: what's your favorite breakfast in New York?
