I highly recommend the East Pole for a healthy breakfast. Try the green juice. The egg white frittata with snow peas, peas, mushrooms is really good. I also recommend the avocado toast.

East Pole, while noisy, has a greta upbeat vibe. The staff i knowledgeable and fairly attentive. The food choices are varied, I especially like their Chicken Kiev, Grilled Cheese With Pickles and Chocolate Bread Pudding.

This is a fun spot with good food and wine on the upper east side. Reasonable hamburgers, excellent bacon. It appears that they have a nice selection of drinks plus their salads are popular at midday. Service is attentive.

We had lunch here on Easter Sunday. Sat by the barcounter. Lots of local people and a good ambiance. Also very good food - banana bread with apple butter, Maine lobster sandwich and goat cheese cheese cake. All very good and a very good barkeeper.
