    For the love of God, get the strawberry butter! One of the best things I've ever had. Pancakes are fluffy and light & the sugar cured bacon is amazing. I want to cry because this meal is so good.

    Try the Wall Street omelette for a sweet ham and cheese combo - remember to tell them to firm up the eggs as default is "runny". Swap biscuits for toast to keep it traditional.

    Specials are amazing but do your best to save room for their great desserts. Obviously one of the most popular brunch spots in the city so give yourself 30+ mins & good friends to wait for a table.

    Try the Lumber Jill and add a side of grits, corn beef hash and biscuits for a hearty breakfast. They have the best bacon and corn beef hash around.

    Had delicious banana walnut pancakes with strawberry butter and a fabulous Bloody Mary with sugar cured bacon. Can't wait to go back for some biscuits and the the Astoria omelette. Two thumbs up!

    Be cautious that they currently have a "C" rating even though their sign says "grade pending"...I loved the vegetable mountain dish before I found that out

    We stayed in line to get in around 40 minutes. But it was worth it as we had the best breakfast ever. We went there twice and I will definitely go again on my next visit to NYC!

    Ordered the tuna melt, and the veggie burger + onion rings & corn bread. Tuna melt & veggie burger were a bit on the bland side. The corn bread on the other hand was one of the best we've ever had!

    It was well worth the wait for brunch! I don't even like strawberries but the strawberry butter was amazing. It looks like it's straight out of VT which is the highest of compliments.

    Fanatastic meal all around. Pancakes, waffles, turkey hash, apple/ched omlette, BLT omlette, lattes, bloody marys with bacon and the farmhouse breakfast. Slamming!! Thick cut delicious BACON!!

    I can't say enough good things. No brunch in NYC can live up to a cup of coffee and an order of bacon waffles in a cozy homey corner of Good Enough to Eat.

    Definitely was good enough to eat, but I am not sure it warrants the lengthy wait. The tuna melt was certainly one of the best in New York and the hot apple cider is nice. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Breakfast food! The French toast is delicious! Coffee is great. Outside seating! Full bar. Bartender made one of the best old fashioned's I've ever had! Great place!

    Everything I tried was amazing, but my favorite is the corned beef hash. Let the egg yoke mix in your potatoes and beef, you'll thank me later :) the French toasts are always excellent too.

    Get a side of the bacon with your brunch - trust me it's unlike anything you have had before. Your table will thank you.

    Pumpkin French toast is unique and delicious. Omelettes are good, but you can get an omelette anywhere. The biscuits and strawberry butter are soooo flavorful. Yumm.

    Oh the line but a little piece of heaven inside. Have the Pancakes with Strawberry butter. Bloody Mary to cure your ills.

    Also, if you come as late as we came 9:15 pm, be ready for them to be out of multiple items on the menu. We still loved the ambiance and decor, and food too (a bit).

    GETE is an NYC staple, serving the UWS since 1981. Head here for a well made Bloody Mary with Maytag bleu cheese stuffed olives to accompany your traditional brunch choices.

    Brilliant breakfast offerings like migas and inventive omelets - try and avoid the crowds and head here early.
  • DC Dining Adventures
    Must get the BLT Omelette that comes with double-smoked bacon, tomato and Gruyère cheese. Best bacon I've ever had!

    The breakfast is delicious - although not wait-in-line-for-45minutes delicious? Go some weekday morning for all of the tastiness and none of the crowds.

    Come here for the kind of restaurant food that doesn’t taste like restaurant food at all. The eggs and pancakes are unpretentiously good, but the biscuits and strawberry butter totally steal the show. Read more

    Biscuits with strawberry butter, good enough to eat French toast, and the Upper west side omelet! Amazing.

    The little eatery, ideal for coffee and a light bite or a full breakfast any day of the week, feels more like Vermont than Manhattan. Read more

    The turkey sausage is really delicious. The biscuits as well! You can also create your own omelette if you want your own unique combo :)

    Ate there twice during our trip to NYC - food is really good, biu the portions are too huge - it might be good idea to share if u r not used to eat big heavy b-fasts.

    Happy to wait in line for a moment of "wonderful" with those magical bacon waffles and cheesy grits. The 8th wonder of the world when it comes to breakfast!

    Come for the biscuits, the sausage, the French toast and the bartender. Only things that disappoint are the coffee drinks (not their forte) and the syrup (watery). Dinner is amazing too.

    I got the hole in bread or something. It was good, but I wish I ordered something else. The pink lemonade cocktail was strong and worth the $12. I'll be back.

    By far the BEST place to have breakfast in New York. This tiny jaunt has a line around the corner and out the back door for Sunday Brunch. You can also inquire about their cooking classes! - Nikki

    You form a line outside if there is a wait, no list. However, the food is fabulous and so is the service. It's small and quaint w/a country feel. Fabulous!
