I am looking for eating places close to the metro-north train station..casual like Panera or Starbucks or a Diner...not more than a few blocks from the train station. Can anyone make some suggestions?
Most everything is about 5 blocks east. Camille's Sidewalk Cafe is closest at one block south and east.
Most of the Restaurants, shops and malls are off Rt. 119, a half a block south of the train station.
Across the Bronx River & 2 blocks North is the City Limits Diner, it's fun. Buon Amici & Nikos Greek Taverna are around the corner on Rt. 100 or Central Ave. All are reasonable & good.
If you make a left onto Rt. 119 or Main Street you will pass many restaurants and the old White Plains Mall. In the mall are many fast food places but along Main Street you'll find Vintage Bar, BLT Steak, Serafina, Around the courts are many upscale restaurants as well, Mulino's on Quarropas has fine Italian, Don Coqui excellent Latin,
It's generally a very safe and busy area. I'm sure you'll find something delicious. Enjoy!
