Old Fashioned Bakery in Glen Cove has a marble-topped table at the south end. It's an ideal perch for a leisurely breakfast.

Forget about eggs, cereals, muffins. This is about a sweet way to start the day. The bakery makes terrific bread, plus outstanding pastries. Recommended: a cappuccino or two, plus cannoli, sfogliatelle or both.

I say both, since you may be daydreaming about Campania as well as Sicily on this sunny day. Besides, you never can have too much ricotta. One large cannolo is $2.50; same price for the large sfogliatella. A medium-size cappuccino, perfectly made, comes in at $2.

Linger over a newspaper. Newsday, of course. But La Repubblica and Corriere della Sera would fit in, too.

Old Fashioned Bakery is owned by Razzano's, the nearby food shop. You can get a head start on lunch and dinner.
