On the Way Café
“Look for eggs-any-style, toast, muffins, oatmeal, and granola at this sweet little townie spot,” says Westchester Magazine award-winning food writer Julia Sexton. “It’s great for when you want something fast, but you don’t want a starch bomb (read: bagel, roll, or croissant). Plus, there’s free WiFi for when you want to get a jump on your emails.”

“This tony European pastry shop slings coffee and breakfast pastries to commuters about to board the nearby Metro-North train,” Sexton points out. “It opens at 7:30 am for early birds and is a great choice for those for which a mundane bun will not do. Fellow commuters clutching Starbucks cups will be jealous.”

Hand Rolled Bagels
“The fan base of this bagel shop is pretty vocal,” Sexton says. “It has won a few Best of Westchester awards—it’s also perfect for those breakfasts that you eat out of a bag.”

“Located in the heart of downtown Rye, this classy bagel place offers the typical bagels and spreads, but also has a wide selection of gourmet sandwiches and salads,” Sexton notes.

Jerry’s Post Road Market
“Camouflaged as a convenience store, this market hides some of Rye’s best breakfast sandwiches,” Sexton says. “Fast service, its own parking lot, a selection of groceries, and even text-to-order make this the perfect choice for the power commuter.”
