    Sweet mother of Baby Jesus, the fried chicken & waffles is everything it's cracked up to be. Don't fear the sweet honey syrup -- put it on the chicken!

    Have one savory dish & one sweet then SHARE. Never had pancakes as fluffy as these, waiters are nice, wait is 1-3hrs but they text you when you're table is ready so you don't have to wait outside 👌

    For breakfast, I suggest splitting the blueberry pancakes as an appetizer. Spanish scramble and huevos rancheros is great too. From the lunch menu, the Kale salad is my favorite. AND GET THE BELLINI!!

    Very delicious pancakes! Just the right amount of crunch while still being soft and fluffy. Gigantic portions! Maybe a bit on the drier side but very good overall. I recommend the banana walnut one

    Quite possibly the best pancakes I’ve ever had! The chicken and waffles was phenomenal too. Really crowded so be sure to get there early to put your name down.

    Nice place. I recommend the banana walnut pancakes. They are good although I found them a bit dry. Portions are gigantic tho so come hungry.

    The pancake was absolutely amazing, very tasty. However, you should make reservation before coming here especially weekends. We had to wait one and a half hours to get a table. Totally worth it tho.

    The service was great and the food delicious. We had a spanish scramble (the best scrambled eggs I ever had) and the farmer's plate. A bit pricey but very tasty, and we were full for the day.

    If you live nearby, use the nowait/Yelp app to get in line ahead of time and avoid waiting outside. Obsessed with the maple butter, and I look forward to pancake month every February.

    Pancakes are a bit expensive but they are probably the best pancakes I've ever had. Attentive service. If you get there around 8 am on a weekday there is no line; by 9 it really fills up.

    I know that this place is famous for their blueberry pancakes, but unfortunately we were in the mood for something savory, so we went with Spanish Scramble, and Steak and eggs. Both were delicious

    Really lives up to the hype for its pancakes! Not only that their eggs are to die for, so they aren’t just know for good pancakes and decent eggs! All around amazing food!!!

    I had to try it. And it was good. Go at a random time, put your name down, go across the street for a coffee and go for a walk around the LES. Come back before your time is up, order pancakes.

    Th pancakes are good, but the biscuit sandwich is great. Make sure to go in the afternoon to avoid the wait, or use the Nowait app to get on the list. It's cash only!

    Blueberry pancakes are the perfect combination of slightly crunchy outside and pure fluffyness. Go at 9pm on a Monday and enjoy no wait

    The hour and a half wait was well worth it. The blueberry pancakes are unreal. As are their onion rings. And their double-smoked bacon. Yes, I got all three.

    Pancakes! Reso recommended but you can also show up a bit before opening hours to get seated without waiting as long, and grab a coffee at Pause Cafe across the street.

    Most popular for breakfast, but actually very good for dinner as well. Plus, there's never the kind of wait as there is in the mornings. I really enjoyed the fried chicken.

    Download the NoWait app to check the wait time. I arrived at 9:35am (25 min before opening) on Sunday, and just missed 1st seating. Was called at 10:40am. Worth it.

    Chocolate chip pancakes were extremely luxurious, i'd like to have seen some more chocolate but maybe I'm greedy.Omelette was fluffy & very tasty. Hash browns were crispy outside creamy inside 10/10

    Best pancakes in NYC (go for the chocolate chips). Also, the latkes with sour cream/apple sauce are always a good choice. Solid menu all around.

    Yes the pancakes are still really f’in good. Everything else is solid too....just elevated diner food. Grits, veggie sandwich, bacon, coffee all above average for a diner

    I cannot tell you how lip smacking good these pancakes are - you've gotta go and taste them for yourself. You just might be transported to food heaven. Worth the wait.

    The good news: you found the best brunch spot in Manhattan. The bad news: by the time you get there there's a 3 hour wait. Get there within an hour of 9 if you want to eat at a reasonable hour.

    Pro tip: get an order of blueberry pancakes for the table and order a main. Don't sleep on the rest of the menu- latkes with salmon were amazing!

    Get the pancakes with Maine Blueberries! Best in NYC. Forget about the scrambled eggs or anything else on the menu. Bottomless coffee isn’t too bad.

    Don't even get me started about this place, I've probably over-raved it but it is SO fucking great. The pancakes are to die for. Probably the best I've ever had in my whole life, and I've eaten plenty

    Amazing is all that I can say about the food here. We waited about an hour to get a table, but it was worth every second. The brunch is superb, goes on until 6pm. Even the OJ tasted good.

    Blueberry pancakes live up to the hype. The maple butter is excellent. They text you an app to check your wait time so you can go walk around LES while you wait.

    always a wait, but well worth the wait! Get there early and put your name on the list, then download the app and keep track of your spot in line.

    The wait is terrible on the weekends, but oh is it worth it. The huevos rancheros are delish. The southern hash, which was a special, are out of this world. Just try to get here as early as possible.

    Eggs Benny very good. But chicken and waffles to die for. Plain old black coffee also good. Friendly staff didn't rush us during weekday morning brekky. So excited to try their outpost in SG!

    If you get the chance to come in minus the lines (lines are NEVER worth it if you're in NYC - there's always something better next door) you must have the fried chicken salad, lollipops or h.rancheros

    Cash only! The 5 hour wait is totally worth it, or just show up alone and sit in the bar. The blueberry pancakes are a synonym of pure happiness, and the maple butter makes it even better!!

    I have dreams about the smoked salmon scramble. It's so good. Pairs well with a Bloody Mary. Make sure to put your name in before you're hungry - wait can be up to 2 hours.

    Grab the two top next to the door. Order blueberry pancakes and chicken and waffles. With each passerby at the window, you'll feel like the Marie Antoinette of brunch. Let them eat pancake!

    Great service and we were very lucky – the wait was supposed to be an hour but there were seats at the bar that we could take immediately. Came for the pancakes, stayed for the sugar cured bacon.

    Eggs Benedict is amazing, the pancakes are worth the hype, the blue cheese sugar bacon burger...drool. Don't expect to camp at your table, they'll get you out ASAP! Not a brunch spot to chill.

    Amazing pancakes, it's the pancake that's fab. Toppings are ok. Chocolate melts if you pour maple butter over top. Cash only. Get here early as first seating goes fast for fairly small place

    One of the best breakfasts I've ever had. I had the blueberry pancakes and added some sugar-cured bacon. I don't even know how to describe how good that was.
