Breakfast by Salt's Cure
This all-day cafe in the West Village is a popular import from LA known for its oatmeal griddle cakes, which look like pancakes but are pre-sweetened and served without syrup. The griddle cakes come in varieties like blueberry, banana nut, and chocolate chip, and they're thin and crispy, with a moist consistency reminiscent of undercooked muffin batter. We're fans. The whole menu leans heavy (don't expect any grapefruit halves), and it has some savory items like fried chicken and a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich. As is the case for a lot of breakfast spots (especially in this neighborhood), you should get here early to avoid having to stand in line too long.
