This cozy, casual cafe serves homestyle breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes every day of the week. Its Madison Avenue outpost is ideally located for grabbing a bite after strolling through Central Park or browsing the halls of the nearby Metropolitan Museum of Art. During the breakfast, lunch and brunch service, kids can sip a fresh Four Flowers Juice ($7) made with orange, pineapple, banana and pomegranate, dig into an autumnal Pumpkin Waffle ($16) or go for a basket of muffins with Sarabeth’s’ famous preserves ($12.50). At dinner, they can choose from a variety of entrees, including pastas ($23–$24) and chicken pot pie ($22).
