AM Pit Stops: Mamaroneck coffee and lunch joints
Where to grab your coffee and carb of choice on your morning commute.
On the Way Café, Village Luncheonette
“You’ve seen Greek-inflected American diners, but this one offers a Latin American twist on the genre,” says Westchester Magazine food writer Julia Sexton. “Get pancakes, eggs, and a cup of joe—or hearty chilaquiles with chicharones. This is a great spot for a cheap, fast, rib-sticking start.” 158 Mamaroneck Ave (914) 698-9822
Hole in the Wall
“Expect just the basics—eggs, toast, and coffee—at this beloved ‘hole in the wall,’” says Sexton. “Look for commuters and workmen to start mustering here at the 6 am opening time, which makes this a great option for early risers. PS—the name is not an exaggeration. Hole in the Wall is small.” 406 Center Ave (914) 698-1628
“This big, glitzy diner is practically town hall—you’ll see everyone here from workers and young families to the local pensioners,” Sexton says. “Its laminated menu is miles long and covers any possible breakfast dish or combination thereof.” 1240 W Boston Post Rd (914) 833-1320
