If abundance is the tone you want to set for the New Year, start off with a first meal at this Union Square breakfast spot known for its legendary large portions. From 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., they'll have the usual heaping plates of eggs n' such and Portuguese breakfast treats (like chorizo with your eggs?), as well as well as weekend specials to choose from.

I love the Ball Square Cafe'!

I've wanted to eat there before, but every time I pass by on a Saturday or Sunday, there's a line of people out the door. Is it worth waiting, and what are some of their best dishes?

They have really great omelets. I love their Moroccan Eggs and also their Whole Wheat Pancakes. . The lines go fairly quickly. They give you a cup of coffee to drink while you wait which is a nice touch. I would say it's worth it.
