Rocco's Pastry & Espresso Café
A little piece of Italy right in the middle of Manhattan. A safe bet is a cannoli with an espresso.
Recommended: Ice cream

Housing Works Used Book Café
Perfect combination of books and coffee.
If you saw the movie “The Smurfs” you will recognize this magical place. In the film it’s called Wong’s Mystical Emporium. Cozy place to spend some time alone or with the family.

Great place to have breakfast and load up on carbs in order to have the energy to see all the sites nearby.

This place almost has everything you look for, it’s good, inexpensive, but maybe not very pretty. But their breakfasts are hearty, delicious and at a great price for what one is accustomed to in NY.

Recommended: ATake advantage of the free Wi-Fi.
