The first thing to do in New York is to enjoy a delicious breakfast. You only have to pass by one of the many breakfast restaurants to realise how important this meal is here. The first of two main options is a savoury, English-style breakfast with eggs, sausages, potatoes, cheese and much more. A sweet breakfast usually comprises American pancakes, served with syrup, and toast with jam. Breakfast here is always served with a large cup of hot coffee. The best way to find a good breakfast place is to watch out for one on your travels. Two great options are the Metro Diner on Broadway and 100th, and Max Brenner next to Union Square. Another breakfast option is a bagel, a traditionally Jewish bread found in several specialised shops, such as Ess-a-bagel on First Avenue.
