Café Lalo: "Best breakfast on the Upper West Side!" Café Lalo Tip by londonlover

Café Lalo, New York City: 11 reviews and 12 photos

  Steamed eggs, potatoes, and salad, oatmeal at rear
by londonlover

I'm sure the "Best Breakfast" award would be a tough title to claim on New York's Upper West Side, but Cafe Lalo must be near the top. The menu is extensive, but focuses on steamed eggs with various fillings, oatmeals, pastries, and yogurts. However, it's a brunch menu, so you can also get sandwiches in the late morning, so you're bound to find something you'll like here.

Favorite Dish: The Irish Breakfast--oatmeal with honey and whole cream, served with a scone and preserves, is fantastic! So are the steamed eggs, which are like omlettes filled with ingredients such as feta cheese, wild mushrooms, spinach, peppers, and spices (many options). The scones themselves are marvelous--served with Devon cream and the best I've had since England!
