    The food is nothing special, I had the Mediterranean eggs and it was literally 4 poached eggs floating in a vodka sauce, the Eggs Benedict were over cooked. Do not recommend this place at all.

    The gelato is pretty tasty. Try their pistachio flavored one on a hot summer day.

    I used to love Bread Box, but our waitress just asked us if we got our food...oh, you mean the breakfast food we ordered 45 minutes ago?

    Good brunch options, outdoor seating, big screens to watch a game inside, but service can be a little slow at times

    Solid brunch without ridiculous wait times. The hummus is legit.

    Cute place for brunch. They don't serve bagels anymore but the menu is still yummy and the coffee is good too.

    The smoked turkey club is amazing. And it comes with homemade chips!

    Shakshouka eggs as others have TIPPED are the differentiator from a brunch menu perspective - dogs welcome!(outside). Service hit or miss...

    Mediterranean eggs are a must. Service isn't the best but doesn't take away from the experience

    The food was great. The servers were very friendly, but seemed to forget about us. Waited forever for our coffee. Never really checked on us. Be prepared to wait if you're going to eat here.

    Unfortunately they don't make bagels anymore. They needed to market them better. How would you even know they have bagels here. Certainly new yorkers like bagels.

    I've never had anything less than delicious here. But double check your order if you do take-out.

    Went for breakfast and to work. Wifi was working when I checked outside before going in. After I ordered (in the empty dining room) it stopped working. Had to get up for my check. Not a do over!
