Sullivan Street makes some very good bread that you’ll find at a bunch of restaurants around the city. At their Sullivan Street location (there’s also one in Hell’s Kitchen), you can sit down for a super-casual breakfast or lunch. Get a panini or a salad, or try one of their obscure Italian pastries. Their bomboloni are essentially Italian cream-filled doughnuts, and you should eat one.

Smile To Go
The crowd at Smile To Go is trendy, but the food isn't. The salads, soups, and sandwiches are simple, fresh, and some of our favorite in Soho.
