Eggs Travagnza Cart
This may come as a surprise, but not all breakfast carts in Midtown are created equal. This one definitely doesn’t serve your average stale pastry, bitter coffee or cement bagels, they not only sell eggselent egg sandwiches but this brother and sister duo, Maribel and Arturo Macedo make from scratch pancakes and banana milkshakes.
IITK Pick: Chorizo, egg and cheese on a roll.

Chef James McDuffee can do no wrong in my eyes, and breakfast is no egg-ception! There are a number of items to choose from but the egg sandwich is out of this world. Be sure to get the platter or order a side of brussels sprouts with sriracha, they won’t dissapoint.
IITK Pick: Breakfast Sandwich Platter, buttery croissant, manchego cheese, local eggs, side order of brussels sprouts with sriracha
