Out of towners typically visit New York for three reasons: The Statue of Liberty, the fashion, and the bagels. Westchester dwellers understand this unique breakfast treat is not just a round piece of bread with a hole in the middle—it’s a delicacy brimming with flavors very few people outside the tri-state area have the privilege of becoming acquainted with.
Here are our favorite places to lighten up a grueling morning routine—breakfast is the most important meal of the day, after all.
Open for those early risers craving a buttered “everything” bagel before they hop on the train for their morning commute, Lenny’s is open at 6am every day, selling a slew of beverage choices (including coffee!) and other snacks.
Folks who grab something on-the-go for breakfast are later welcomed to come back for lunch as the eatery also offers fruit, yogurt, paninis, wraps and salads all day long. Open from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the week, catering and delivery are available.
Meeting a friend for breakfast or lunch? This restaurant boasts a cozy interior seating area perfect for two coffee guzzlers to dish about everything from politics to day care.
