    Excellent food all around, but I really love the breakfast special - spicy Mediterranean egg sandwich and the *best coffee* in the area! The owner is a nice guy as well. Great spot!

    A NowThis News staple, The Picnic Basket's Mediterranean Egg Sandwich with a coffee for $6 is the best breakfast deal around. Try it out!

    Holy moly. The breakfast brioche with ham and cheese is ridiculously good. This place plays swanky old tunes and has power outlets to recharge you!! I will definitely be back!

    The Mediterranean Salad is so flavorful! Definitely enough for a lunch, especially since it comes with a side of Pita. Try the sweet potato fries side if you're extra hungry! Both great.

    The med egg is fabulous indeed. And so is everything else on the breakfast list. Do try it out for a lovely breakfast (*˘︶˘*)

    Yup! My favorite is the Mediterranean breakfast platter because it's just absolutely delicious. The coffees are tasty and the cookies are out of this world.

    Big portions, the Chimi Chicken sandwich is amazing. The pita chips in the hummus snack are too hard, but the hummus itself is delicious. Worth the price.

    Crazy around lunchtime but that's expected anywhere in this area. If you'll be frequenting this shop, check in with your phone # at the counter to earn free treats!

    The others are right, the med egg is an excellent breakfast option. Who new omelette and hummus worked together?

    Breakfast sandwiches. Spicy sauces and dressings are great. Crunchy tuna on pita or the grilled halloumi with chimichurri sandwich are my go-tos.

    Egg sandwich is a nice breakfast option! (hint: it's their only breakfast item but it's Delish!). Filled w hummus, chopped Mediterranean salad in a pita :)

    Now hidden behind the massive chick-fil-a line... little do those line-waiters know they're missing some of the best sandwiches in the NYC metropolitan area!

    Oh no! Terrible service! They didn't have an item I ordered, which is fine. But 60 seconds after ringing me up, she lies, saying she listed all the other options out loud to me... So bizarre!
