Percolate's Breakfast Spots
Balthazar is one of Percolate's Breakfast Spots.

1. Balthazar

8.9
80 Spring St (at Crosby St), New York, NY
French Restaurant · SoHo · 1061 tips and reviews

PercolatePercolate: An old Soho standby. Not much to add about Balthazar except that it's worth making a reservation (especially on Friday mornings). Oh, and we're not sure about that bowl of coffee.

Peels is one of Percolate's Breakfast Spots.

2. Peels

325 Bowery (at E 2nd St), New York, NY
Breakfast Spot · East Village · 381 tips and reviews

PercolatePercolate: When we were working on Bond and Bowery this was an easy commute into the office. Always check the daily scone, as it's usually delicious.

3. il Buco Alimentari & Vineria

8.8
53 Great Jones St (btwn Lafayette St & Bowery), New York, NY
Italian Restaurant · NoHo · 248 tips and reviews

PercolatePercolate: This place got 3 stars from the Times and now you can't really turn up for dinner without a reservation. But they've got a sort-of secret breakfast that's totally delicious. Try the baked eggs.

The Smile is one of Percolate's Breakfast Spots.

4. The Smile

26 Bond St (btwn Bowery & Lafayette St), New York, NY
Café · NoHo · 396 tips and reviews

PercolatePercolate: Another local breakfast spot for our old office, the best thing about The Smile is the feel of the place and simplicity of the breakfast. Where else can you order baguette with brie and jam?

Mercer Kitchen is one of Percolate's Breakfast Spots.

5. Mercer Kitchen

99 Prince St (at Mercer St), New York, NY
American Restaurant · SoHo · 403 tips and reviews

PercolatePercolate: If you're looking for something a little quieter (and fancier) Mercer kitchen is a nice spot. The breakfast is simple and you're pretty likely to run into a celebrity. (PS - Breakfast is upstairs.)

The Grey Dog - Union Square is one of Percolate's Breakfast Spots.

6. The Grey Dog - Union Square

8.6
90 University Pl (btwn E 11th & E 12th St), New York, NY
Café · Greenwich Village · 327 tips and reviews

PercolatePercolate: Inevitably you need to meet someone at Union Square for breakfast. This is a pretty good move. Make sure you snag a seat before you order so as not to get stuck eating standing up.

The Grey Dog - Chelsea is one of Percolate's Breakfast Spots.

7. The Grey Dog - Chelsea

8.8
242 W 16th St (btwn 7th & 8th Ave), New York, NY
Café · Chelsea · 386 tips and reviews

PercolatePercolate: This is like the secret Grey Dog. It's a good spot for a meeting as it's much more spacious than the University location. We must admit we had a few early breakfasts here after not leaving the office.

'sNice is one of Percolate's Breakfast Spots.

8. 'sNice

45 8th Ave (at W 4th St.), New York, NY
Vegan and Vegetarian Restaurant · West Village · 105 tips and reviews

PercolatePercolate: Great coffee, nice spot and we love the tofu scramble wrap. Stay for likemind on the third Friday of the month ;)

Coffee Shop is one of Percolate's Breakfast Spots.

9. Coffee Shop

29 Union Sq W (at E 16th St), New York, NY
Diner · Union Square · 466 tips and reviews

PercolatePercolate: This isn't a place you go for service (we're pretty sure the servers don't care whether you eat or not), but it's hard to beat the location (right on Union Square West).
