My wife and I are in New York for a little vacation. Cafe Lalo (http://cafelalo.com) was recommended to us. We went by there yesterday for a late breakfast. This in a nice place that is stuck in amongst apartment buildings. It is located at 201 West 83rd St.
New York, NY 10024.
They claim on their website that Cafe Lalo is “The cafe Europeans would love to have in Europe! Cafe Lalo has become known as the place to go before and after the movies, the theater or dinner to enjoy a great dessert and an expertly-made cappuccino. With our unique European design and open air atmosphere by floor-to-ceiling French windows, Cafe Lalo is the place to see and to be seen. Come sip an espresso with the writers, artists and celebrities who join the locals to enjoy soothing jazz and classical music in a relaxing atmosphere.”
I don’t know about that, but I do know that they had good breakfasts. I had a three cheese omelette – Sharp cheddar, Brie and Blue Cheese.
My wife had three scrambled eggs shiitake & porcini mushrooms.
We went back to Lalo’s a second time (we both had the same dishes) and I did captured a photo of the deserts. They have a great selection! I hope to sample some of those.
This is a place we would recommend to anyone and it likely a place we will return at least once on our brief trip to New York.
