    TT 10 Cheap Eats: "'40s-era diner w/menu of classics & old-school Euro favs, like pierogi & cabbage. Oversized B&H Special omelet and served with hash-like home fries and slices of house-made challah"

    Don't be pushed away because it's vegetarian. B & H has the best breakfast in EV hands down, and it's only $6! Homemade challah bread and the friendliest staff around. Say hi to Mike! Good juices too.

    East village institution should be an official landmark. Luckily we didn't lose it in the explosion earlier in the year. Quick, honest food for a fare price. Don't forget about the fresh juices too.

    This Jewish dairy restaurant remains a paragon of the meatless half of Kosher Jewish cuisine. Sit at the long lunch counter and enjoy cheese-squirting blintzes, egg sandwiches and savory soups.

    Village Voice · April 26, 2013
  • Ranu R.

    Get the perogies or an omelette, and if you're craving something sweet, challah French toast is the way to go. Grab a fresh juice on your way out, and enjoy the friendliest service ever.

  • Keith K.

    This place is the best!!! Small groups only, it's tiny. Say hi to Mike behind the grill, he takes the orders, never writes anything down, makes the food and never gets dirty...amazing!!!

    Keith K-OS · April 10, 2010
  • Becca M.

    The fresh smoothies & juices are yummy & only ~$5. Bonus points because they're served in transparent red tumblers. Makes you feel like you're at summer camp!

    The pierogies ($9.50 for 4), filled with potato or cheese, are plump and unusually large. They’re great with the hearty, but not heavy, barley and mushroom soup. Read more

    Vegetarian lasagna with soup can be easily shared by two people. And rice pudding for desert completes a perfect lunch

    The sandwiches are made on the amazing challah bread. The mozzarella sandwich is great, make sure you add salt though. Egg sandwich is amazing, tons of dill.

    Matt Kerestesy · April 12, 2013
  • Noah P.

    Juices here are cheaper than the trendy juice bars in the neighborhood. Get a 16 oz juice for $5. I recommend apple, beet, kale, carrot, kiwi.

    Noah Perabo · October 3, 2012
  • Harry R.

    A classic, cozy diner with the friendliest staff in NY. Omelettes, tuna melt and pierogis are all delicious.

    Local, affordable, delicious food that's been in east village forever. Get you full with 10 dollars with less. Their own bread is delicious.

    Eastern European vegetarian lunch counter. Go for breakfast hash browns, egg and cheese sandwiches on challah, and plenty of Old World charm.

    Serious Eats · August 19, 2013
  • Olof C.

    Came for the French toast. Good taste but missed some fruit or similar. Huge stack of food. Authentic 🗽 style diner. Lots of returning customers.

    Olof Carlson · March 7, 2015
  • Laurence B.

    They're open again. Egg cream is okay but not as good as I make at home. Borscht and kasha are both great. And it's really inexpensive too.

    Laurence Berland · August 27, 2015
  • Joanna F.

    Smoked whitefish or tuna melt on thick challah with a cup of matzoh ball soup is a classic NY lunch.

    Joanna Flamm · March 14
  • Zach L.

    Challah french toast, soups, blintzes, pierogies. A NYC institution, remnant of a bygone era, and one of my favorite places on the planet.

    Zach Linder · November 11, 2015
  • Eat to Blog

    An old-school NYC dairy restaurant. Get a bowl of soup with a stack of challah smeared with butter, and just sit at the counter and relax.

    Eat to Blog · January 14, 2012
  • J Crowley

    Grilled cheese and stuffed cabbage are the jam! Pass on the pierogis, not so good. If you must - don't get the cheese - its that sweet cheese bullshit.

    J Crowley · November 28, 2011
  • ZZubin

    You won't find breakfast meats at this classic Ukrainian influenced, old school lunch counter. Take advantage of the fresh challah.

    ZZubin · September 12, 2015
  • Yana L.

    Their Matzo Ball soup is AWESOME! (the only place I know of where you can get vegetarian matzo ball soup). Get it with buttered hallah bread.

    Yana L. · October 11, 2009
  • Robin K.

    Quick and cheap comfort food - especially the breakfast special! Mike and Leo are super nice! The challah is fluffy and delicious.

    say hi to Rafael behind the counter, he's a great guy who makes you great food! B&H feels like you're in someone's cozy lil kitchen.

    Awesome vegetarian Jewish deli. Check the daily specials - they're great value and usually come with a cup of comforting soup.

    Lucy Morieson · April 24, 2014

    Best french toast in town. Most expensive thing on the me the menu is $12.50. Home made challah makes everything better.

    lauren · January 30, 2015
  • Andrew F.

    B&H Special Omelette for breakfast is the way to go. More food than is healthy to eat for only $9.50

    Andrew Furman · September 23, 2015
  • Stan B.

    Cream Cheese and Lox on fresh Challah bread. What dreams are made of. Trust me when I say it does not disappoint.

    Stan Bashmashnikov · January 3, 2014
  • M V.

    This seems to show up on a bunch of vegan searches but, seems super limited for vegan options. The soups would be a safe bet, though!

    A regular told our reporter, "You see this counter? The countertop is from the 70′s. But underneath it is the one from the 40′s. They just put this over it.” Read more

    It's like campus eatery in terms of what you order but ten times fresher and people are a hundred times less anal.

  • Tom A.

    I can't say I would really recommend the Vegetarian Chilli - but it's cheap, very quick and healthy.

    The Tuna Melt was amazing. Huge and served on challah. I had the Tuna Melt and Hot Borscht combo.

    Ask Leo for his private stash of chile habanero hot sauce if you want to spice it up! Eli fuego!!

    Uranium TV · April 5, 2013
  • Julia S.

    Mm their lentil soup is perfect for cold days. The accompanying challah is sweet heaven 😋

    Julia San Juan · February 5
  • Mike W.

    The Cold Borscht is neon pink and amazing, but only available when the weather is warm.

    Mike Winston · August 31, 2012
  • Eric F.

    Go for the challah grilled cheese and pierogi. PS - this is also the skinniest restaurant in NYC.

    Eric Friedman · April 19, 2011
  • ben m.

    Perfect place for a cheap solo lunch. Challah grilled cheese and any of the soups.

    ben m · August 15, 2014
  • Alex G.

    You want the cheese blintzes or the perogies or something on challah bread. Trust me.

    Alex Godin · March 4, 2014
  • Martin S.

    Grab a custom pressed fruit/vegetable juice or eat cheap vegetarian soups etc!

    Martin Sandberg · May 11, 2013
  • Matt H.

    Vegetable soup makes for a deceptively hearty lunch. Also comes with amazing challah.

    Matt Healy · August 8, 2012
  • Todd S.

    Yankee Bean soup is delicious and so are their other regular soups. An EV institution.

    Todd Simmons · November 22, 2010
  • Kyle S.

    Classic NY deli. Super friendly. Amazing egg sandwiches!

    Kyle Seever · October 18, 2014

    Frsh made juices are great. Choose your own, or let him come up with something for you.

    Taylor · March 26, 2011
  • Johnny W.

    Quite small but quite good. Grilled cheese was excellent. Cash only.

    Johnny Won · November 9, 2014
  • Charlene J.

    They have LOAVES of challah bread (rare) that are PERFECT for homemade french toast!

    Charlene Jaszewski · February 13, 2010
  • Kate Y.

    Grab a counter seat and hang with Mike, he will treat you well. Try the stuffed cabbage and tomato soup.
