REVIEWS OF The Grey Dog IN New York

Suz Sims-Fletcher

nice place for casual meetings eith friends. warm bar atmosphere. get a seat near the window and watch the sidewalk parade. not cheap but not expensive.

Dylan Parker

Ordering and getting seating during busy times is kind of chaotic, but once all settled the food is fine and the staff very friendly. Definitely a noisy eating environment though. My kid loved the boned-shaped pancakes.

Ilan Kirschenbaum

Great food, great vegetarian and GF options (vegan options coming soon), Great(!) coffee and wonderful service and atmosphere. Definitely a place to return to. Would love to come back here on future visits to NY.

The fries were amazing, will be going back to try the sweet potato fries. the burger was okay.

Mario Castro

I got a grilled cheese sandwich here and it was pretty good and the prices are pretty average. This is a good place for a chill meal.

sukhi Gidda

Friendly staff, with an amazing vibe in the restaurant, love the decor. Food was good and reasonably priced Recommended for sure

Tony M

Good food, fair prices. Order at the bar & seat yourself. Great casual spot.

Edith Blodgett

Very good place to meet with friends, or just have breakfast or lunch by yourself. Yummy, and healthy food selection paired with good coffee. We had an avocado salmon salad, and an omelette, both were fresh and tasty. If you're looking for a fast, good food option with a nice atmosphere, you'll be happy here!

Aimee Savage

Cozy restaurant, but the food just felt mediocre. Nothing really stood out to us. The service was great though!


Great food, good ambiance and the staff was awesome! Plus I went to Michigan, so love that connection! ☺

Edwin Mendez

Great breakfast excellent service.

Rachel Simon

My go to spot for casual dinner or brunch. The chili is so good!

Alisa Wyman

Been here twice. Perfect place to meet up with friends (very close to union square). It's loud, but friendly. Wait time is quick, staff are competent, and the portions are great! Plus... free coffee refills!

Tricia Knutson

Best Cobb Salad!! Cute place with a great menu. Also loved the Brussels Sprouts.

Marta Rivera-Llorens

A city gem! This small restaurant is fabulous. The staff is so attentive and joyful that is contagious! Their style and ambience are unique, cozy and inviting. The food is delicious! We loved everything about it!

Shelby Mckenzie

Delicious food!! Best hamburger and Mac n cheese...friendly staff and quick service...great place for college area!

Ben Judah

Meh. Food wasn't great - not somewhere we will go back to.

Elizabeth Cooper

i went there with my friends and we were really big group of people somthing like 15-16. We didn`t make a reservation because it was random choice from someone in the front and we went there, they found a table for all of us really quickly. The food in the restaurant is amazing and the customer service is great,

Anna Nguyen

It's good - in a greasy way, sometimes their soups are way too salty. Service is always friendly. Not the fastest if you need a quick lunch however.

Josh Wilson

The staff was so friendly and accommodating to our family of five. They were so sweet to my kids even as we waited and I felt like they were in the way.

Suzanne Spence

Always cozy and inviting with a menu of always fresh, house made speciality items that keep me coming back for more. The sandwiches are always satisfying and don't leave without trying one of the gigantic slices of banana bread or pumpkin bread (seasonally).


Latte was good, gluten-free zucchini (made on site) was excellent! They were packed so I'll have to come back for breakfast.

Emily Siy

They make a good chai latte. Lots of seating. This location seems to get busy! Nice staff and clean place.

eden brachot

The grey dog has excellent service! They use an interesting model where you order and pay at the bar, and then your food is brought out to you! I got the cauliflower stir fry which was huge, steamy and delicious. I'll be back for brunch!

Leon Carson

Good food

Michael Glickman

Love this place. A nyc staple.

Kim Rutherford

Excellent fresh breakfast with generous portions and good, strong coffee with free refills. Best omelette I've had in awhile. Very noisy with boisterous NYU students, but overall a good vibe.

Tyson Robertson

I love this place. Food is good, but the service is the best part. Even when they are swamped they always get you a table easily. Love it here.

Edward Lee

The food is fine but it's more for the relaxed atmosphere

Jennifer Mancilla

This place is really just another mediocre spot in the area. The service is extremely poor. Line moves so slow when they have spare employees walking around. Only came here for their gluten free option which is not safe to eat here when they can't even take your order correctly, and for someone with celiacs- this is a serious factor. I came here yesterday, they messed up on half my order and so I had to get rid of half the expected meal paid for. Came the day right after and they had my gluten free food mixed in the plate with food that had gluten. Why apologize for the first mistake and take my name down to then make it so much worse the next day? The inconvenience was terrible having to waste 40 minutes for a simple bacon egg and cheese. For their price this is not worth anyone's time trying to catch a meal on the go. Take your business elsewhere!!

Archer Brinkley

Great food, big portion sizes make the prices worth it! Love the casual vibe of this place but the music is often BLASTING so loud you can't hear anyone at your table without shouting.

Chun Yi

Guac bacon grilled cheese sammich ✌️

Garrett King

Pancakes were dry and not that great. The shop was cool and had a great atmosphere.

Andrew Schultz

While the seating was unconventional the food was good and the atmosphere was alive

Константин Весна

i love their desserts

Janet Gullberg

Loved it!!! Great food, great atmosphere!!! ☺️

BigSwiftynAssociates .

Overall I have enjoyed eating here. Nothing overly mindblowing but always good. Laid back atmosphere and a nice variety of fare.

anthony arvelo

I know a lot of great cooks and some of the staff over there. They are nice!

Edward Daciuk

Had the steak wrap. It was overdone. I think to hide the quality of the meat. The fries were limp things that you'd expect from microwaved frozen fries. So food is a fail. The only reason it's 3 star and not 1 is the decor and the staff. It's really the staff that keeps the place in business. They should give them a raise.

Schelle'y Cunningham

We had an excellent experience! Everyone should give it a try

Eric Moon

This was my second visit and I'm still impressed with how well the staff deals with a busy crowd while still being so personable. The food is on mark and huge amounts. Great mimosas along with nice blends of coffee and tea. Love the decore with the metal plates being a nice touch.

Elad Mallel

The almond milk cappuccino is mostly burnt and not tasty, and the food never lives up to its potential. And the music tends to be too loud for a normal conversation. This place has great potential! Just need to level up on some aspects..

Brooke Cunningham

Good food, decent prices! Enjoyed Pride weekend here.

Christian Mantilla

GLUTEN FREE ZUCCHINI BREAD WAS TO DIEEEEE FORRRRR!! I'm not even allergic to gluten and I'd fly across the country just to eat this bread again! The coffee (our original reason for stopping in) was also good.

Jelena Fammelle

Tasty food, good service, nice atmosphere.

George Griffiths

Great breakfasts

Taylor U

Awesome coffee and it was even open at a decently late hour.

Mara Alexeev

Ok but very busy and tight space. I wouldn't bring kids here because space is so tight. No space for strollers.

Donyele Wilkerson

The food was good, but a little pricey for the atmosphere. It was a cute little bar with a decent menu selection.

Lazarus Lordi

Great nosh near NYU

Alison Shepherd

I really enjoyed this place. Good food and nice staff. A lovely atmosphere.

Venera Varbanova

This is one of my favorite places in NYC! So casual, so friendly... There is definitely some very pleasant vibe about it. I truly love it. Favorite drink: mulled wine (hot spiced red wine), perfect in the winter months!

Nohely Rose

Food here never lets me down. Just found out there's 3 locations. Thought the was only 1

Efrat Petel

Great place to have for a quick, not formal happy hour Tuna tacos

Bella Fenn

This place has a nice ambiance but is a little small. We have been here this past summer and tried the veggie burger and it was delicious! Unfortunately, I think they have changed up their menu because the burger we got tonight was definitely not as good. It tasted and looked exactly like a beyond meat burger which we cook at home. When I go to a restaurant I expect a housemade fresh burger not a frozen burger just heated up. Feeling annoyed and disappointed about this change. We payed $14 for a frozen burger it’s ridiculous!

Raymond Gan

Friendly service. Admittedly it was a bit convoluted since there are no table numbers and they call you out by name. The food is good though!

Adriana Elizondo

Really good cold brews coffee! Equally amazing gluten free zuchinni bread! And really cool vibe for a coffee shop. Highly recommend this place to meet a friend for coffee and some chit chat.

Dustin Felker

Was late for a walking tour of the the area. So we found ourselves looking for a place to eat in an unfamiliar area. My wife and two girls loved this place; quaint corner establishment with quite a selection to choose from. Locals and tourist alike. I would eat here again.

Rachel Meyer

LOVE the grey dog!! Even on busy days the wait is never too long and their menu offers a variety of options that will please any preference. The staff is always very friendly and the atmosphere is cozy. Great spot to stop in for a coffee, have weekend brunch, catch up with a friend over lunch, grab a quick dinner, or even swing by for apps and drinks on a date!

Aliya Gilmore

I've always enjoyed this cafe. Great for meetings when it's not crowded. Cozy place for coffee and meet ups

Emily Lu

What an eclectic place to have brunch! The portion is big and hearty and the food tastes great! It’s a popular restaurant with limited seats so cover to wait for a while for a table on weekends!

Chad Chamberlain

Can't wait to go back to this spot

Christina Giordanella

I've gone a bunch of times and usually love the place a lot, but was very disappointed with ordering to-go, the quality was less and my sandwich was smaller, on different bread and missing toppings, also only half the amount of fries. So definitely not worth the price. However, dining there I think is totally worth it due to the big portion size, I'm hoping they can rectify this to-go situation though!

Caleb Rivera

Waited for almost an hour to get my food (people came in after me and got their food before I did). When I let them know they didn't give me a reason why it took so long. The food was OK, not really all that good for what I paid for (I got the Grey Dog Breakfast). The atmosphere was chill and had a cool look, the staff were pretty chill too (I would say their saving grace from a 1 star). Not sure this is somewhere I would go again, there's a lot of cheaper options for breakfast/cafe in the area, try those before you try here.

Stephen Elliot

Delicious food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Cozy place with a relaxed yet attentive vibe. Been here several times and it's always a pleasant experience. Do yourself a favor and upgrade to the sweet potato fries. Not ideal for groups. The overheard conversations from adjacent tables are always interesting.

Sage Russell

This place was amazing. The staff were friendly and the food was great. Seating can be a bit cozy, but that adds to the atmosphere here. A nice little place and would absolutely recommend to anyone.

June Zeng

I usually order sandwich which is ok. tried stir fried cauliflower rice today - super super super salty! on top of that, too much sauce that makes it not like stir fried, but "stewed"

Mario Rigby

Great visit, love the food and service. The portion sizes are also quite large as I watched most people could not finish their meals. However yummy!

F Carro

Nice staff, good food.

Ella Wang

Great, friendly service and ambiance!

Anthony Rahayel

At the bar, order and choose a table. There is no table service at Grey Dog. Sit at one of the colorful wooden boards and enjoy the moment. I love it here, the bar, the mood and the decor from which I learned a lot. You don’t need fancy furniture to create an experience!

Paul Fuchs

Great food! Very Busy! But they do move you along when you have been sitting at your table too long. It is understandable due to their size and amount of customers.

Jonathan Pena

Great spot for sandwiches. Small,cozy and the service is always welcoming. Pro tip, if it's your first time at a grey dog, let the server know and they will be more than willing to show where things are at. The chicken sandwich had a ton of flavor , although I would say a little salty for my taste! Service came out quickly and overall a great meal!

Allen Dennis

Good food, great service.

Katherine Marciniak

I usually don’t write reviews, but this place was so rude. The workers were talking about me behind my back. Crazy.

Christine Nelson

Loved this place! Wanted a quaint place to eat and this was perfect. Delicious fish tacos. Its A rated for a reason, clean, great food and staff!

Rachel Harris

Excellent omelette, I love that it comes with a green salad. Great coffee too.

Haneul Oh

It used to be so, so good, but much of the changed recipes have been disappointing. Nothing really stands out anymore. It’s still not a bad option, but it was once better.

Jonathan Wexler

Currently sitting, waiting for over 20 minutes for an order of French toast. It seems they might have forgotten about the order. Others who arrived after me got their food nearly 10 minutes ago. The atmosphere is nice, drinks were good. Just not too happy about the speed and transparency over getting our food, especially because we were only making a quick stop to eat here and it’s looking like an hour long experience. Update: now over 30 minutes and no one seems to know the status of our order. I’m about to leave without eating.

Simon Frisby

The restaurant vibe is actually pretty cool here, but the coffee I has was average. If you are coming for breakfast, having an average coffee kind of kills the experience, at least in my books. The food was okay, but certainly not "college student" cheap.

Matan Kadosh

A clean establishment with friendly staff. You order at the register and they bring it out to your table. The place has an “old school” vibe, with pictures of Willie Nelson and old looking tables. The music is just a tad too loud. I could not hear other table’s conversations, however it was difficult for me to be heard and difficult for others at my table to be heard too. I had a veggie burger and it was very good. I almost thought it was meat because it was seasoned and grilled well. My only criticism is that it is rather small and also the fries are too salty (just my opinion folks). Decent pricing for NYC restaurant food and it gets an A for location. Hope this helps!

Dalila Alizaey

Great burger, awesome banana bread :)

A. Mobley

Friends and I meet periodically for breakfast and will select a new (to us) restaurant. From the outside, it seemed unassuming; once inside we were blown away by the staff (greeted us upon arrival) and food. Pros: Super friendly, uber patient staff (was ahead of a "gentleman" who put the poor cashier through several gyrations due to his orange juice being "bitter"); food is very tasty; speedy service; super handsome food runner. Cons: None Notes: It is not a huge space and can get packed (we dined on a Friday morning, about a half hour after opening and by the time we left at 8:45, the line was out the door) Peruse photos on the wall and you will get a sense this is more than a faceless restaurant chain, but rather an organization fully invested in their employees, as evidenced by year-over-year photos of the same smiling faces. Overall Impression: Loved everything about this restaurant and will definitely return.

Sierra Key

Even on a busy Saturday this place is efficient! My friends and I really enjoyed this place for brunch. The staff are super great and the food is sooooo good. I liked the youthful vibe!

Quinn Dailey

This restaurants energy levels are beyond anything my human mind can comprehend. I pray for any soul that enters it's proximity

Graham Clayton

I don't really want to tell you about this place it's busy already don't tell two many people please ha WOW....!!! What a find, you have to wait a bit for a table, but who cares when you're eating at the best place in New York city. The food is so great the atmosphere inside brilliant love the vibe it gives out. 20 out of 10.

Corinne Bangs

Absolutely obsessed. Their honeydew frosé is off the chain!!! They also have almond soap in their bathrooms, so that was a major selling point

Max Robinson

get the chimichanga

Scott E. Baylow

Very yummy coffee & great service!

Kamna Dhyani Sharma

Good food and great service!

Chase Johnson

Excellent food and really friendly staff. Great vibe to the place, too!

Steve C 032

Delicous food and excellent service. Most important, both the excellent food and service have stayed consistent since I began coming here eleven years ago. The Grey Dog Breakfast is really good and very filling...lots of food. I had an entree with pesto linguini, but don't recall what the entree was...I just remember how I liked the pesto. I love the Smokey Bear "Prevent Table Hibernation" sign! That's the best's just sad that nowadays one has to tell people how to behave and respect.

nancy Berg

Great food, great atmosphere, the service was excellent

Ian Rahman

Come for the omelette, stick around for the coffee and vibes. Breakfast here is a little pricey, but you get good portions and great flavor for the cost. The Local Omelette and Challah French Toast are my go-to’s here, and you can’t go wrong with a smooth cappuccino!

Tyana Bryan

such a great vibe and amazing food. lively music and talking in the background that adds to the ambiance

Chris Veith

The nicest staff! Very fun atmosphere and good food. Everyone was chill and happy. The prices were also fair

Mike Hathaway

Easy breezy ordering. Friendly service where the folks care about your experience. The food is fantastic as well!! Whether it be hungover brunch or after work meal it's always coming up clutch. Show up, order just about anything and walk away happy!!

Sarthak Garg

Expensive food, poor quantity. Ordered a portion of chicken tenders. Priced like an entree, the bowl had four tiny pieces of chicken and the rest of the bowl was just fries. Same with the burger, tiny burger and a whole lot of fries.

Daniela VillaRamos

Let me preface this by saying that I've been going to The Grey Dog for a couple of years, at least once or twice a month, meeting clients there to drink, eat, and be merry. The Union Square and Chelsea locations *were* my favorite and this is why I'm not rating it one-star today. However today, the manager (let's call them 'NIK') addressed me with such a condescending tone in front of my clients and their children that my love for The Grey Dog evaporated in an instant! Their assumption was that I put my 'dirty plate on someone else's table' when in actuality I spoke to the person sitting there to share their space. When I spoke to the manager afterwards, I made it clear that their assumption and tone in the way they addressed me was not okay (which is a lot for me since I tend to take things on the chin). While they apologized, they kept saying that they were looking out for the customers. I guess my avocado toast with a latte doesn't qualify me as a customer? It was a bit more crowded than usual and maybe she was stressed out, which I can understand, and in the grand scheme of life - this is NOT a big deal. But customer service means a lot to me and today I was made to feel small in what used to be one of my favorite Union Square coffee/lunch spots. I won't be returning and I hope this is a one-off experience that no one else will encounter. NIK, please don't make assumptions or speak down to customers going forward.

Diane H

Great food and place to visit

Tedd Smith

Cheesesteak wrap one of a kind!

Melissa Morgan

Loved this little place. Delicious food and extremely friendly staff. Would go back again

Joseph Pisicchio

This place rocks!!! great place to go after you see a movie!!. The bartenders were on point. The wine and drinks were very tasty!!!!! definitely a new experience in the old neighborhood. Im going back soon!

Matt Watts

Food served in generous portions and in a timely manner. I would also recommend an ale called Big Wave which they serve on tap. Nice decor both inside and outside which certainly makes you feel relaxed and welcomed. I have two minor issues which were that it was unclear whether your order would be taken from your table or the bar. Fortunately there was a member of staff who happen to be on lunch explained the process otherwise we would have been lost. The other issue was that we needed to relocate from the seats next to the window (left if you are looking from the outside, right from the inside) to a few tables down due to the music being rather loud (I think the one of the speakers is placed there) which is not helpful for those with a hearing loss. However, with those two issues aside, I would certainly revisit.

Matt Shea

Great food and fast service - would go again


Very very nice place and good sandwiches!

Christopher Waggoner

Great food and staff are very helpful and informative. Eclectic style and homey feel.

Will Stransky

Eclectic place for a beer

Lau Ra

Love this place for brunch or for a fast sandwich. People is nice, all food is always great, the service is perfect. I also love cookies and other sweets. Last time I ordered french toasts and they were amazing. The place is quite small, but there’s always chance to find a table.

Daniel McGowan

Love everything about The Grey Dog. The food, the staff (love Nicki), the energy, the people.

Ruwan J.

snug artsy neighborhood cafe / coffee shop planted a hop and skip from Union Square. Grey Dog has a few other locations in the city. the one on University has a positive-vibed student feel as it is convenient to NYU and services many of those students and other young-ish folks in the neighb. while the space is small, there are seating options tucked everywhere--mostly small tables. the warm wood interior and exposed brick pairs nicely with the eclectic art and chalkboard menu on the walls...supporting a casual space to grab coffee and food and escape the sidewalk bustle of the city. *Grey Dog gets superbusy throughout the day/evening--have no expectation that you can hang out here for hours, camp out, marathon on your laptop, use a table as a de facto startup company's office (no one wants your app anyway hahaha), etc. tables are in high-demand. seriously be a good human being and self-aware and don't do the above-mentioned* how it works? order food at the counter, pay, and iyour order will be brought out by the staff. if you're having coffee, you'll take it to your table yourself...the menu stretches from healthy-esque plates to comfort dishes: $12-$15 range. free refills on the drip coffee ($2.99 w/ tax)...YASSS! the dark roast drip coffee is good--hot caffeine that is not burnt or too acidic. the staff is pleasant and constantly hustling. tip them nicely--jar at the counter. drops mic cuz i'm caffeinated

Michael Gorman

The atmosphere created by the decor, staff and coffee shop crowd make this a consistently fun place to be. Always have a good time here. Low key but hip. Food is solid.

Kyle Stewart

Fine, but service could have been more peppy. I like all the pictures of dogs. This place doesn't really feel like a New York city restaurant, which I think gives it charactor. Kinda feels like a transplant from a smaller town or less dense city.

Tiffany Cheng

Grey Dog is a coffee spot with American brunch and lunch items. Mostly for a quick bite, like a fast casual spot, except the waitstaff are really attentive and clean. They are sweet people, kind, and quick to help out customers. Very casual atmosphere, except it's busy weekends during lunch hours.

Mac A

Had a solid breakfast here today. I got the Grey Dog Breakfast, and I thought it was a great sample of everything they had to offer. The eggs and bacon were both good, but the pancakes were really good! Super flavorful, and pretty sizable. The only thing that I could see discouraging people from this place is the seating/ordering system so I’ll do everyone a solid and make that clear. When you enter the restaurant, a host/hostess/server will find a seat for you and your party. They will mark that table with a bandana, and you then go to the counter and order your food, finishing up by giving them the name for the order. You then go back to your seats, and wait for your food, just like at any other restaurant. Make sure that you get your silverware from the self service station or I guess you’ll be eating with your hands.

Daiana Benitez

Super nice place to brunch!

Alexa Walls

Great breakfast/brunch! Portion sizes were large and the food was cooked perfectly. The place has a great ambiance, and wasn’t overly loud. Employees were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Kyle McElroy

Great food and service. Fun space, very enjoyable. Good coffee, too.

Nicholas Getta

Prices don't match the food. Food is good, but nothing special. Romantic aesthetics, alright for dates.

James McCormack

Friendly staff, affordable eats (for that neighborhood anyway) and quick service. Great for a lunch break or catching up with friends.

April Burke

Friendly staff, generous portions, and the owner is from Michigan; what's not to love!! Go Blue!!!

Ryan Laurence

This place is awesome. Okay, but it really is. The food is phenomenal, the service is top notch, and the ambiance is pretty cool. The only thing is the price. We paid around $40+ for our midday meal. I got a sandwich with fries and a cold brew and she got the breakfast special with a special drink that I now forget. But that is what I consider an expensive breakfast/lunch/brunch-whatever. However it was extremely filling, came out quick, and their cold brew was killer. Overall I would say that if you are willing to splurge for a great breakfast/lunch/brunch-whatever then look no further.

Stace D

Perfect place to hang out when you want a real meal within the comfort and casualness of a café. Prices are good, especially considering the portions size (very filling), location, and the fact that no one is rushing you out (but PLEASE be considerate when its crowded). Breakfast was delicious

Ellie Martin

Went here recently with a group of friends. Very crowded at 1pm on a Friday. The cashier was kind, but the waiter was annoyed we didn’t catch him talking to us. This may just be my meal, but my French toast had a metallic sort of flavor. The coffee was decent though.

Asma Syed

Love this place. Not always easy to get a table but that's part of its charm. I've never gotten the same thing twice or been disappointed!

Carlo Fong Luy

Reliable place for brunch. You order ahead before sitting at the table designated by a colored handkerchief. The adventure themed log cabin decoration was a nice touch. The food was good, though for the same price, there are more competitive options. The appeal of this place is the casual atmosphere and the simplicity in getting a good breakfast/brunch without the obstacles to having to reserve.

André L. S.

Their froze was pretty fantastic tbh. Don't remember the exact food I had (zucchini spaghetti, I think?) but it was decent. Will probably go back if I'm in the area. And cute decor!

Maddie DePree

I don’t like this location as much as the other one. It’s always packed and they made me leave after about thirty minutes to “make room” for other customers. The food is good but incredibly overpriced.

Steven Namm

Great food!

Ann Edmundson

Food was great and the staff was very son recommend this place and I will definitely be stopping by again...

Tysis Sid

Delicious food and pleasant ambiance.

Gillian Costanzo

Crowded but the food was amazing!

Christine Leverett

Pretty delicious and quick!

Stephen Cronin

I used to like it much better. Last couple years though the food has not been as good. They recently brought back my favorite meal, The Philly Cheesesteak wrap. It doesn’t taste anything like it did before. Meat was chewy and I was not a fan of the cheese sauce :(

Andrew Chan

The pictures of the Fried Fish Tacos are not subjective, just look at them and judge for yourself. The oil was old, the fish was absent, it was like eating old croutons cutting the roof of your mouth. The Chicken Meatball Soup was lukewarm at best and lazy. Barely any meatballs, just shredded chicken with shredded cheese mixed in with low grade macaroni. The Brussel Sprouts were blackened to a crisp and burned. If you like an overpoweringly strong vinegar taste, these are for you. Bottom line: The stars go for the kind service. Been coming here for ten years and it’s never been this bad. Hope that this was an anomaly.

Samantha Yeung

One of my favorite go-to cafe's in NYC! The food is always tasty and fresh. (Their baked goods are especially amazing) You can order at the counter while someone at the front helps hold a table for you. Great place to catch up with someone or even to just eat a side of sweet potato fries and read a book.

Ginny Li

I had tuna melt, it was delicious.

Chris Stevens

Great Beer and service!

Ricardo Mesquita de Abeci

The food is really good, specially the scrambled eggs, done to the disired doneness.

Ten Kim

Just OK brunch place to me. Coffee tasted really bad, I should just drink orange juice. I wish they could make better egg!! Please!! But I like the strawberry butter with the french toast!

Robert M. Foose

Got the classic omlet with sausage, mushrooms, and green peppers along with a black cup of coffee. The food was good. I really enjoyed the potatoes. The veggies are locally sourced and you can tell. Even the toast was solid. I'm deducting a star for the following reasons: the coffee (although unlimited) was middle of the road, it's a restaurant but you have to order at the counter and get your own silverware and napkins, and lastly my personal pet peeves, they don't accept cash. Credit/debit only. Worth patronizing inspite of the no cash policy which is becoming more common.

George Rice

Great atmosphere, friendly service, and an excellent breakfast. Thanks, Susan and Lucy, for guiding us (former) strangers to such a delightful cafe!

Jonas Barranca

Delicious food, excellent espresso and a lovely ambiance. I had the fried chicken sandwich that was a great size with an option of side, and a cortado. How nice to find a cafe/brunch spot that isn’t pretentious, in the Village.

priyanka kulkarni

I work close by in neighborhood and came here with colleagues. Sandwiches are good. Very large portions and quick service. I like the ambience as well to sit and eat. The service is ok. Overall a good place to pick up lunch during work hours.

Barry Loudis

Nothing like it, nowhere. Top notch breakfast. Everything is great.

Nancy Marin-Rojas DDS

Quick and efficient When for a visit during a busy lunch time. Orders are taken quickly. The space is small and seating is tight but there is a quick turn over. Food was delicious and portion size was adequate.

Steve Utaski

So cool and tasty.

Ling Qi

Awesome food..Small places but typical NYC

Albert K

Great coffee, great brunch, and open seating. No reservations, but quick for take out or casually sitting at a table. Very unique kitchen situation where the kitchen is downstairs and the food is lifted up to you. Brunch was good. Omelette was very large in size and well cooked. Coffee was free refills and delicious. Will go again.

Beth McGee

Very nice. The food here was excellent. The first time I've ever not been able to eat my whole breakfast, the portions were so great. Delicious omelet. Nice vibe.

Isabel Norman

Food was good. Friendly staff. Brunch is busy, can be difficult to grab a table. I recommend grabbing a table first then ordering. If people are waiting for tables mgmt will persuade you to leave with a free cup of coffee - certainly not the worst strategy lol. Not good for big groups. A friend I was with said the dinner crowd was not as busy. I would come back to check it out. Overall, good and would return.

Mark Ingram

A great funky cafe and a great place to chill for an hour

Virginia Kaycoff

Cozy restaurant w minimalist service, young clientele, excellent posthippie food, great play list (but too loud), and great coffee! Can get v crowded, but the waits are short.

Danni Michaeli

Always excellent service in a hip but homey setting. A little noisy and can be very crowded, but overall excellent breakfast experience.

Lovely cafe / bar, the buttermilk chicken burger is excellent!

Loved by many and loved by all. Don’t miss this stop for a quick bite, or hang out and do some work while you eat. Highly recommended.

Nice place. Cozy atmosphere and good food.


The food was tasty, and the service was friendly. The place is cozy, but the seating is very tight, boarderline uncomfortable. Folks are packed in like sardines, hard to get in and out of our corner table.
