Nosy Neighbor: Where Can I Get Breakfast in Tribeca?

Little Park poached eggsI’d love to see a list of restaurants serving breakfast in the neighborhood. I’m tired of the places I know! —Janet

I came up with this list off the top of my head, then reviewed the Tribeca Citizen Restaurant Guide, but I may have missed a couple. I’m defining “breakfast” the way your mother would: You can get hot food and eat it while sitting down. (So I didn’t include bakeries and coffee shops, which I assume you know anyway, or fast food just because.) These all serve weekday breakfast, although some don’t start till 9 a.m. or later.

Pictured: Little Park’s grain porridge with poached eggs and hen of the woods mushrooms (above) and brûléed grapefruit (below).
