New York Sandwiches

All right, we’ll admit, there’s nothing like a real New York bagel, but New York Sandwiches provides a decent substitute, and lots of other options for hungry brunch-goers. It’s very classic and straightforward, including omelettes, several varieties of eggs benedict, and even steak and eggs. It has a location in Syntagma and another in Ambelokipi. They’re both open until midnight, so if your breakfast cravings hit you late, you’re in luck.
