Dairy free breakfast in New York

On our first full day in New York my body clock was all out of synch I was starving at 5am. I checked on Google and nowhere local was open. I was surprised we were staying on Wall Street, maybe this was why. There was a local bagel shop that did vegan options but it wasn’t open for another 2 hours. So it was breakfast buffet in the hotel for $30! I explained that I had a milk allergy and asked what I could have. The staff were very helpful and knowledgable. It was a no go for all pastries, toast, scrambled eggs and certain cereals. They offered me freshly cooked eggs which I accepted. I asked if I could have fried eggs, which was no problem. I was unable to have the bread and asked instead if I could get my own bread which they were happy for me to do. Thank goodness for my Tesco’s free from bread. They also offered me almond milk as well as the regular soya milk to have in my tea. Of course I politely said no thank you. I ended up with melon and bacon to start. Bread and egg followed by corn flakes and locally made honey. This was of course accompanied by the obligatory earl grey tea. This was a typical holiday breakfast for me that filled me up nicely for the morning. I was just glad that I took my emergency Tesco’s free from bread.

    Ah it’s so lovely that they were so accommodating and it looks like you at least had some decent bits to eat which is great! 🙂

      Hi, I certainly did have a nice breakfast and my eggs were lovely. Thank goodness I had my Tesco’s bread to dunk in them.

      Hi, thanks for reading my new post. It great to receive great service when eating out, especially when they let you eat your own bread.

    Oh man! I hope you were able to find a good dairy-free place while you were here! Did you manage to make it to any of the new vegan places that have opened up? x

      Hi, thanks for taking the time to read my review. Sadly, I didn’t find any vegan places. A friend showed us around New York and ate at their places of choice. Hopefully I can return soon and try some, Chloe.
