Stage Restaurant serves up everything from omelettes to challah French toast to borscht. Breakfast is served all day.
Mark and I were in the neighborhood this weekend, and they were busy. It looks like a small old-fashioned diner from the outside, with a counter facing a narrow open kitchen.
There is a pick-up window along the sidewalk that makes picking up orders easy. The window is probably open during the summer months, for fresh air.
I've never eaten there, but the online reviews are great. The menu is huge and the prices are reasonable. If we lived in the neighborhood, we'd be at that counter at least once a week.

It's been cold and rainy here in the City. Mark and I will be away for a few days in Puerto Rico, where we went a couple years ago. We haven't had a break in a while, and this is a much-needed one.
