Beginning at 7am, early risers can start their day with fresh breads, croissants and fabulous bomboloni (custard-filled doughnuts) at this café and bakery from chef Iacopo Falai. Although the former Le Cirque pastry whiz’s dainties are not to be missed, the inexpensive savory menu has highlights all its own. Try the hot, gooey whole-wheat lasagna or black-sesame–crusted tuna crudo.
