6 Restaurants You Could Literally Spend All Day In
Between the city’s ubiquitous diners and street carts open at all hours, we’re not lacking for options when it comes to convenience. But lately we’ve been noticing more and more proper restaurants getting into the all-day game. Here are six that are equally great for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
This bi-level Williamsburg space is already one of our favorite places to grab dinner, so we were stoked to discover it’s open for breakfast and lunch, serving up $1 Rival Bros. coffee, doughnuts of the day and a hot fried-chicken sandwich. Sounds like a totally valid excuse to take a personal day, in our opinion.
80 N. Sixth St. (at Wythe Ave.), Brooklyn; 718-210-3152 or riderbklyn.com
The iconic Greenwich Village spot recently launched a new Breakfast Club, which gets you coffee or juice and an entrée (like a quinoa bowl topped with squash, kale and a poached egg) for just $15. Then, later in the day, stick around for $9 Negroni happy hour, featuring a dozen riffs on the cocktail, including chocolate- and lavender-infused versions alongside the classic.
79-81 MacDougal St. (at Bleecker St.); 212-982-5275 or dante-nyc.com
Friend of a Farmer
We’re not sure how they did it, but this new location of the popular Gramercy restaurant boasts all the rustic charm of an upstate getaway without leaving the city. (Maybe it’s the wallpaper…or the multiple fireplaces.) Regardless, you can start your day with house-made granola or pumpkin pancakes and finish it with a grass-fed burger or crab cakes.
76 Montague St. (at Hicks St.), Brooklyn; 718-643-6600 or friendofafarmer.com
There’s something très Parisian about posting up over a little bistro table with a book as the world passes by outside. Not only does this West Village gem have the ambience in spades, but it’ll also keep you well fed from your morning café au lait and scramble to lobster potpie and rosé in the evening.
42 Grove St. (at Bleecker St.); 212-255-3590 or buvette.com
Yep, the lunch spot you know and love can now be your go-to for breakfast (and dinner) at its Theater District and Upper East Side locations. That translates to matcha lattes, quinoa waffles and a really, really good breakfast sandwich.

The name might lead you to believe this is a breakfast spot, but don’t be fooled: You’ll find great (egg-centric) eats anytime of day, from a killer B.E.C. to carnitas-topped udon.
