I can buy Entenmann's in Dallas. I'm looking for freshly made at a bakery to have for breakfast while we are in NY.

Although Entenmann's (and before them, Ebinger's) popularized the idea of "New York crumb cake," it's not actually a New York specialty in the way that bagels or pizza are. Crumb cake is available at almost any deli, but I just don't want you to get your hopes up about the quality.

Where in Midtown are you staying?

Not what we would consider breakfast food but certainly looks good. I'll give it a go when I visit in September. Thanks

Better yet, have a pretzel croissant or mixed berry scone at City Bakery (18th between 5th and 6th)

Americans do love eating sweet baked goods for breakfast -- donuts, coffee cake, danish, etc. What do you eat in Belfast? (I'm reminded of a time when we were making pancakes on a Sunday morning in a dormitory kitchen, and a Japanese graduate student said, "You Americans eat such strange things for breakfast! Here, try some of my squid in sea urchin sauce.")
