Breakfast , brunch & picnic lunch ? - Murray Hill recs please !

willowan | May 24, 2011 03:05 PM

Hey all

Staying Murray Hill ( Shelburne Hotel on Lexington ) for four nights ( Thr - Mon ).

Have identified

-Penelope cafe ( ? ridiculous queues ? but would it be less so on , say, a Friday or Monday ? )
- Scotty's diner

as potential breakfast spots within easy walking distance of hotel

So

- Are these both good options ?

- If so, what in your opinion is best to eat in each ?

Plus this leaves two other breakfasts to find - where else in the vicinity should we not miss ?

Would be particularly interested in any places which have a totally different 'feel', or indeed food, to those listed above.

Oh and where nearby can we pick up reasonably priced food for a picnic ? - especially fresh fruit , cold meats, cheese and bread. Any good supermarkets or deli's in the vicinty of our hotel ?

Thanks in advance for your wisdom and guidance !
