Leave it to a San Franciscan to have her first breakfast in Manhattan be avocado toast. But Cafe Gitane — a wonderful little French/Moroccan spot in Nolita — does it quite well, perhaps better than some West Coast cafes. It is absolutely sublime when paired with an order of baked eggs with basil, tomato and cream. My only complaint about the eggs was that the yolks were not runny at all, but the flavor more than enough made up for it. I wish I could have returned for lunch or dinner, because many other menu items look delicious.
