Breakfast rooms that provide a truly civilized spot for morning coffee

The intimate, corner breakfast room of this two bedroom, 4,500+ square foot condo at 50 Central Park South (yours for $39 million) boasts 10 foot ceilings, great light and breathtaking view of Central Park.


A formal dining room seems like such a commitment for a menu that routinely calls for a cup of coffee and a slice a toast. To the rescue: the breakfast room, a nifty little nook off or within the kitchen that’s the perfect size for smaller meals.

It may look like a dining room, but this generously sized space with 20 foot ceilings, sandwiched between the kitchen and family room of a 17-room, 10,000-plus-square-foot condo at 3 East 95th Street (listed at $29.8 million) is in fact solely devoted to early morning meals.

The country-style breakfast room off the kitchen of this four-bedroom, four-bath co-op at 101 Central Park West (on the market for $18 million) features city views and plenty of sunlight by which to peruse the morning papers.

This cheery breakfast spot adjacent to the kitchen of a two-bedroom, four-bath duplex penthouse at 770 Park Avenue (asking price: $16.5 million) has a large window and built-in seating for the family.

This 8-foot-by-9-foot corner breakfast room, connecting the kitchen and dining rooms of this two-bedroom, two-bath condo at 907 Fifth Avenue (priced at $6.995 million) offers plenty space in which to enjoy a bowl of cereal and a slice of toast.
