Those hungering for a quick breakfast near Grand Central will find a fine one at Cipriani Le Specialità. Open from 7 on weekdays, the breakfast-lunch-takeout outpost of the tony Cipriani empire makes outstanding oatmeal, sweet and creamy, with berries or raisins if you like, reports Wanda_Gorgonzola.

Pastries and cappuccino are decent. So are frittatas and other egg dishes, but they’re cooked in advance, so make sure they haven’t been sitting too long. “Bring the newspaper, pull up a stool at the window, and chill,” Wanda advises.
