On-the-Go Breakfasts to Get You Through Your Morning Commute


The morning commute can be a hassle: You rush to make the train and forget to eat the most important meal of the day. Thankfully, some of the county’s Metro-North stations are conveniently located near some of our favorite on-the-go breakfast options. Whether you’re looking to shake up your morning routine or simply forgot to grab some breakfast on your way to work, here are five portable starts to the day that will keep you full until your lunch break.


Breakfast Cookie at Red Barn Bakery

5 S Astor St, Irvington; 914.231.7779

This quaint, gourmet café, a short, 3-minute walk from the Irvington station, serves cookies for breakfast. The 100% organic, nutrient-rich breakfast cookies are packed with oats, raisins, coconut, almonds, mango, and papaya, and will keep you satisfied well past your arrival at Grand Central.

Located next to the Rye Metro-North station, Granola Bar’s breakfast burrito is a portable, protein-packed combo of scrambled eggs, quinoa, black beans, avocado, American cheese and charred chipotle salsa, held together by a grilled vegan whole-wheat wrap.
