    Very cute restaurant. Was nice to sit in the small garden they have in the back.

    Breakfast favorites include the Belgian waffle with fruit, the croque monsieur, and the walnut-cranberry toast. A meal at Buvette feels like you’ve escaped to Paris. Read more

    I like the food but a little RACIST that all of the servers are white?

    The ideal brunch spot on a dreary NYC day. Suddenly you're in Paris eating fluffy steamed eggs on crunchy, oily bread topped with goat cheese and sun-dried cherry tomatoes. (Get that, btw).

    Arrived early just after 9am on Sunday for brunch to avoid the usual queue for this place. Great brunch options, can highly watermelon lemonade and salmon with eggs

    When you're a restaurant in New York and the service is slow and the food is barely enough and mediocre you should just go somewhere else

    ideal decor for Francophiles, and the food is impressive to boot! tried the Nutella crepe, eggs with prosciutto + Parmesan, and carrots w/ pistachio + lemon - all delicious

    Breakfast here: superb and absolutely classic. Feels so chic and totally not fussy. That proscuitto, scrambled egg and toast dish is so simple but done super well. Give me this over a benedict any day

    That chocolate thing! Everything is good here. Really tasty butter, good wines. Pretty much the same as the one in Paris, but with more people.

    Get their croque madame, maybe a bit small or it was just too good! Loved their lemonice.

    The croque forestier is Jody Williams' vegetarian answer to the croque-monsieur. It is pure decadence: buttery, creamy, earthy, crunchy, and toasty. Read more

    Excellent food although German couple next to us complained about cost of substituting one bread for another.

    Try to get a table in the garden - there's only about 8 seats out there.

    Perfect place for a social Sunday brunch with your foodie friends. But be aware that lines during that 'rush hour' can be severe up to 2 hours 😁

    The croque monsieurs were delicious, although the eggs could be cooked with more care in their egg entrees. Overall good but high priced

    Come for the style but don't come hungry if you're on a budget... Also, was told seeds in mimosa is ok because, fresh juice!

    The wine - chotes du Rhone is legit

    At breakfast, be treated to a more serene version of the restaurant—linger over coffee and scrambled eggs with prosciutto. For dinner, vegetables and anything served in a cocotte will do you right. Read more

    Sit at the bar. You get a unique insight into the organised chaos & excellent food. Don't ask for a mimosa before 12. They treat you like you're an alcoholic, even though it's on the breakfast Menu.

    pro-tip: if there's a wait for breakfast, grab an Americano and sit on the benches outside while you wait
  • John L.
    Great French small plates anytime but particularly late at night (closes at 2am)

    Steamed eggs take a long time but are delicious. Scones are delicious

    Cute french dining & bar! Try Croquet monsieur, mulled wine & chocolate mousse. They serve the best latte in the city. Quite a long wait to get a table though!
