A breakfast food festival is coming to the Manhattan waterfront

By Christina Izzo

We don't know about you, but there are some days when we just want to eat breakfast all day. Now you can eat those 4pm pancakes without any societal side-eye at the BreakFestival from Food Karma Projects (the organizers of Pig Island and Cook-Out NYC) and all-breakfast site Extra Crispy.

On Labor Day weekend (from 2–5pm and 6–9pm on both Saturday, September 3 and Sunday, September 4), breakfast lovers will descend on Stuyvesant Cove Park for a morning spread from 20-plus chefs, including Inday's Anup Joshi, who will serve chaat-dusted bacon-egg-and-cheese dosas; Humberto Guallpa (Calle Dao), offering a Cuban-Chinese Benedict with Chinese sausage, bok choy and a tomate de arbol hollandaise; and Cathy Erway (author of The Food of Taiwan), who will whip up chilled tofu pudding with ginger syrup.  

Along with bacon stations, chef cook-offs and eating contests (a Breakfast King and Queen will be crowned), the fest will feature Murph's Bloody Marys and coffee cocktails from Drambuie. Cheers to that.
