Breakfast At Cafe Mogador
In the 30 years since, they've opened a second outpost in Williamsburg, and remained a standby despite New York's ever-changing restaurant scene. Showing up in the recommendations of passersby like Syvan Mandel, Cara Flaherty, Jasmine Imani, and Nicole Hokayem, I headed over to Cafe Mogador's original cafe in the East Village for some breakfast.
If you can't manage to snag a sidewalk table outside the restaurant (I couldn't), the inside is just as lovely. With a kitschy array of artwork on the walls and the unmatched tables that are scattered throughout the space, the vibe is eclectic and comfortable.
The menu at Cafe Mogador offers a plentiful selection of classic and modern Moroccan dishes to choose from, regardless of what time of day you're stopping by. From their breakfast menu, I ordered the Moroccan Eggs, which came with a platter of hummus and tabouli, plus some za'atar to smear all the above onto. Simple but delicious, my eggs were the perfect meal to start the day.
