Early breakfasts - for the uncool

magfitz | Jan 1, 200912:30 PM     13

Yesterday, my husband and I had the luck to 1) both have the day off and 2) have the sitter coming to watch our 16 month old. We decided to head out early and have breakfast .

This is the issue we came across. While I know that there are plenty of diners that are open early (7:00 or earlier if not 24 hours) we had a hard time finding a non-diner place for breakfast at about 8am. We originally intended to go to Penelope but then we had the "brilliant" idea of heading down to the lower east side (hoping to dine at Clinton street baking Company). I know it is our fault for not doing any research on the subject but once there, we realized that Clinton St. Baking company does not open until 10am. We decided to walk around a bit and found that this was the case at most places. So I guess here is my question. For future reference, can anyone suggest breakfast places that open up early. Since my husband and I tend to be out and about on the early side (on weekends), we have found some places but we are hoping that we are not even scratching the surface.

Here is a list of the places that I know are open early. Any additional non-diner suggestions would be appreciated
Penelope
7A
Kitchenette
Egg (Williamsburg)
Sunburst
Balthazar

We live in Murray Hill/Kips Bay but we will generally travel a bit.

Thank you for any and all suggestions

P.S. We would up dining at 7A
