7 Places To Eat Breakfast On Your Honeymoon In New York

New York is probably one of the most exciting cities in the world, and there are some great places to eat. So if you are spending your honeymoon in New York, don’t eat in your hotel – get out and sample some of the wonderful foods on offer.

Here are 7 of my favourite places to eat breakfast:

1. Balthazar Restaurant

Whenever I’m lucky enough to spend a couple of days in New York, this is one of the first places I head for.

This wonderful French bistro in Spring Street was, until 1997 a leather warehouse, but is now one of SoHo’s most famous eating places.

Breakfast here can be as simple as boiled eggs and soldiers, or cappuccino and croissants, or you can go the whole hog with a “ full English ”.

With it’s Parisian decor, and it’s great buzzy atmosphere it’s well worth a visit. But just a word of warning – get there early for breakfast – this place fills up fast!

2. Clinton Street Bakery and Restaurant

If pancakes are your thing, then head for the Clinton Street Bakery and restaurant on the Lower East Side. Their blueberry, banana and walnut pancakes and maple butter have won numerous awards since they opened in 1991.

They should really rename this place Pancake Heaven. With just 32 seats, it can get a bit hectic at times, but if you don’t mind the wait, which can sometimes be up to an hour, it’s definitely worth a visit.

3. Sarabeth’s Central Park South

After your first visit to Sarabeths you just know it won’t be your last. This lovely little restaurant is right across from Central Park, so after a hearty breakfast it’s perfect for a brisk walk around the park.

It’s not cheap – but the food is good and the portions are generous and the menu offers plenty of choice. It’s always busy and the queues for tables are often out the door, so it’s a good idea to make a reservation.

4. Good Enough To Eat

This lovely little restaurant has been serving up breakfasts since 1981, and can be found at 483  Amsterdam Avenue at 83rd Street on the Upper West Side. Once again, if you don’t make a reservation you will probably have to stand in line for a table.

Inside it does tend to feel a little cramped, but the decor is charming, and there is a real old-fashioned atmosphere. The food is delicious – and all freshly made, like the wonderful waffles, omelette’s and pancakes.

And if you want a really great dessert, try the carrot cake – it’s delicious!

5. Norma’s at Le Parker Meridien

Norma’s restaurant is up the stairs in Le Parker Meridien Hotel at 119W 56th Street.

Eating breakfast at Norma’s feels like a real treat where every minute should be savoured, which is exactly what you want on your honeymoon.

The extensive menu has something to suit every taste, from blueberry muffins to the fabulous lobster and asparagus omelette.

But be warned – it’s certainly not cheap. But hey, portions are large and you certainly won’t be hungry when you leave.

6. Pastis

Pastis is a lovely French style restaurant located in the very trendy Meatpacking District on 9th Ave and Little West 12th Street. Pastis is part of Balthazar, so has the same comfy feeling, and the same great noisy buzz of people enjoying themselves.

On nice days it’s great to sit at one of the outside tables and drink a delicious cafe-au- lait. The breakfast menu is totally mouthwatering – but I have to say the brioche french toast with fresh fruit and maple syrup is my absolute favourite.

7. Patisserie Claude

187 W 4th St New York is where you will find Patisserie Claude. It’s a lovely little pastry shop/cafe serving what could well be the most delicious croissants you are ever likely to eat.

Get there early in the morning when the fluffy and buttery croissants are fresh from the oven. The decor isn’t pretentious – this is just a small bakery baking the most incredible french pastries.
