During a recent trip to New York, I was able to check out the Amex Centurion Lounge at LaGuardia and experience their breakfast.

The access to the Amex Centurion Lounges are the primary reason why I’ve kept my Platinum Card® from American Express. When Delta slashed access to their Sky Clubs, I was happy to be able to continue to access Centurion Lounges and can now access lounges in New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Dallas and soon to be Miami and Seattle. But The Platinum Card® from American Express also comes with some great benefits like a $100 statement credit for TSA Pre✓™, Airport Club Access with Priority Pass, Hilton Gold status, no foreign transaction fees, and a $200 airline fee statement credit. So all those benefits are worth a lot to me than the annual fee for the card.

The Amex Centurion Lounge in LaGuardia is located pre-security in terminal B between the B and C security sections. Members who have the Platinum Card® from American Express,The Business Platinum Card® from American Express, or the Centurion Card can access the lounge for free as part of their membership fee while other American Express card holders can access the lounge for a $50 entrance fee.

The lounge opens 5:30 am and I was second in line waiting for the doors to open.

I made myself an espresso from the coffee machine and poured a glass of fresh orange juice.

The hot items on the buffet consisted of a fried egg dish, some eggs, along with some french toast.

Bottom Line

The breakfast at the Amex Centurion Lounge in LaGuardia is great. I personally like that it opens at 5:30 am and is ready to go for the first patrons arriving into the lounge. I’ll definitely make my way to this lounge on my next visit to LaGuardia, even if departing from the Delta Terminal. After eating the lounge, the Delta Terminal is only a short walk outside on a side walk. In all it took about 5 minutes to walk between terminals.

  1. I didn’t know the Plat card had Hilton Gold status as well. I thought it was SPG gold. Anyways, does the centurion lounge require a boarding pass in addition to the amex plat card? I ask because, in theory, if I work at LGA, for example, and have an Amex plat card, I can eat at the centurion lounge every day (like a meal plan.) Correct?
