When you say a full breakfast place, what exactly do you mean? A place that just serves breakfast? A place with a buffet? Is neighborhood or price a factor? Are you looking for an only in NY breakfast or any type of breakfast? Most places do brunch on Sundays only. A few do Saturdays.

Check out this link to a breakfast thread I posted a while back. I hope it's helpful.

To impress a date for breakfast, I recommend:

Sarabeth's on the Upper West Side
Norma's in Midtown at the Parker Meridian Hotel
Clinton Street Bakery on the Lower East Side

Caveat: Be prepared for long waits for weekend brunch at any decent NYC restaurant.

Sarabeths Central Park South.
Nice place. Buy your date a gift of Sarabeths marmalades to take home, I think Plum Cherry and Apricot Orange are the best.

Alice's Tea Cup is a nice place if your date likes tea.
73rd Street. I've been there too, nice breakfast but you will have to wait!

Although they are both mini-chains, I'm very fond of Kitchenette and Petite Abeille. Kitchenette is a kitschy diner with great traditional breakfasts. Petite Abeille is Belgian, great waffles and omelettes. I like the Hudson St. location.

Hi All,
I want to take the time to Thanks Everyone who had responded. Thanks to billyboy, and others to gave me some resource for me to look up. It was such a short notices, haven't been in the city in over ages. (except for the 9-11 WTC Motorcycle Memorial Rides from Ct. and back home.) I live in Bethel, Ct. Someone in my town, told me about a place, called French Roast. Any Take on it??? Thanks To All! }}:^) Charlie.

There are two, one uptown, one downtown. Pretty standard coffee shops, perhaps a bit nicer than most. Nothing that would "impress".
