Sandler’s on 9th is an all-day cafe in Washington Square West that is big, bright, and serves a bunch of twists on classic comfort food. We particularly like it for it’s breakfast, which happens every day starting at 7am and has things like salted caramel French toast and Norwegian smoked salmon Benedict. It’s also a good place for kids, so bring them if you have any or stay away if the sound of laughing children isn’t what you want to hear first thing in the morning.
