Tucked away on 32nd street, midtown Manhattan, there is a tiny storefront serving some of the best breakfast in New York City. I am talking about Mike’s Coffee and Deli. There is nowhere to sit and nowhere to stand so if you are looking to go and take a load off, don’t bother going to Mike’s. There is usually a line around the corner, packed with people that are looking to get their breakfast and go. Don’t worry though, if you see a long line, it moves fast. You will be at the front within minutes, paying for and receiving your food not too long after.
Mike’s is a breakfast spot for the fast paced. People waiting on line know what they want and know that they don’t have to wait long for it. The employees, know your own order better than you do. Every once an a while, an order could change up and then one might have to wait a few extra seconds. One patron was talking about how all she has to do, is make eye-contact with one of the counter people, nod and they will have her order waiting for her when she gets to the front of the line.
Affordability and quality, Mike’s nails that on the head. Probably one of the best bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches in the city, along with a good strong cup of coffee to get you out of your morning fog. If you are ever in midtown and crushed for time, Mike’s Coffee and Deli is the spot to satisfy your morning feeding routine. Even if you are not in a rush you can save time by stopping at Mike’s, think about what you can do with a few extra “New York Minutes” in the morning. Stop by and enjoy, tell them Dave Jacobs sent you over.
