I'm looking for a place preferably in the East Village/West Village/East Side up to 23rd street for a late Breakfast 10:30 am or early lunch same time. Should be casual but not a dive. Non hurried atmosphere, not important if they serve wine etc at that time of day. Also one of our party is a vegetarian (does eat dairy/eggs no flesh) so that has to be taken into account. Basically something a step up from your average diner without getting too complicated or too ethnic. Something on the order of decent omelettes in a clean place with good service and decor that would please your Mother if you get my drift. I know this isn't normal daring Chowhound fare but it's an important situation for me.
Thanks for any suggestions
