Breakfast spots on Prince St.

Jeremy Osner | May 6, 1999 10:44 AM

I work in Soho and occasionally eat breakfast out. Here
are a few of the places I've been to, and my

Buffa's, Prince St. and Lafayette
This is a nice coffee shop, a good place for fried eggs
and home fries. Plus you can buy the newspaper at the

Cafe Gitane, Mott St. between Prince and Houston
Excellent coffee, good granola, plus if you sit in the
window there you look hip.

Market, Elizabeth St. between Prince and Spring
Just went there for the first time. It seemed a lot
like Gitane except less attitude. (Both Gitane and
Market also have a full lunch/dinner menu, even
though they both seem initially like bakery/cafes.) The
cook here is a really nice guy.

Cafe Habana, Prince St. and Bowery(? -- maybe it's a
block west of Bowery)
Have not been there yet, though I've been meaning to
for a while. I used to eat lunch there sometimes, when
it was a sort of mediocre coffee shop called Bella's.

Jerry's, Prince St. and Greene
Too expensive.
