    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.

    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.

    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"

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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

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

    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.

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

    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.

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

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

    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.

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

    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.

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

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