How late a business is open at night is the focus of the entry for night time. This list focuses on restaurants that serve a full breakfast meal.

2007-09-03 14:37:27   This page should probably be pared down to omit all the cafes and bagel places that happen to be open early in the morning. There are hordes of them and their inclusion makes it hard to find the restaurants that offer an actual sit-down breakfast or brunch. Comments welcome. —HenryHouse

2010-08-13 12:07:54   Any recommendations for a fairly nice Sunday brunch around 11 or 11:30? My folks are coming for a visit. Seasons looks like one good option, but are there any other thoughts? —TomGarberson
