    Contrary to the the other tips I thought the service was pretty good. The burger was amazing and the fries are to die for. I don't know what spices they use but I couldn't believe how tasty they were.

    The grilled cheese goes great with tomatoes and avocado (it has American and Gouda in it!). The eggs Benedict/florentine are also a staple. The hangover sandwich is great (even without the bacon)

    Yes, it's actually a restaurant, and surprise, their specialty is authentic Brazilian! Get the shrimp baiano, a shrimp stew from Bahia, that comes with kale, fried plantains and plenty of white rice.

    My go-to place on Union Square. I like their huevo rancheros and the salmon eggs Benedict the most for brunch. Come for cocktail hour and order the coconut shrimps. DON'T get the Mac and Cheese

    Everyone will tell you that Coffee Shop is a solid choice for an evening cocktail or a laid back brunch... What they don't say is that this place cures hangovers. The hangover sandwich is perfect.

    Turkey croissant with herbed fries is on point. California wrap with scrambled eggs and avo served all day is a staple. Staff isn't the most attentive but you came to sit outside so who cares.

    The best French toast and bacon ever! Delicious coffee, friendly staff and a great menu! A definite top choice for brunch, always.

    The huevos rancheros are tasty but you'll definitely want some herbed fries to sop up the salsa verde. Phenomenal vibe as well.

    Pinot Grigio is 30 dollars a bottle. I tried the fish and chips. Batter was that of a corn dog and greasy. Lump crab cake was delicious a little wet but tons of crab. Linguine was bland and starchy

    We have a soft spot for this chill (and still chic) joint. Their Jazzy Brunch is fun (try the English Grill) and the tuna over greens is a favorite.

    Hot waitstaff. I shamelessly come here weekday afternoons at 12 to start boozing. Oh the hard life! The grilled corn is a must. Almost like habanas (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Coffee Shop breathes new life into an old favorite, brownie a la mode. The brownie is warmed and drizzled with chocolate sauce. Try it with coffee ice cream.
  • Dan F.
    Brunch is sneaky good, also had the brownie a la mode which was good as well. Trendy spot to hit up during the day for lunch or brunch on the weekend.

    Brunch place to go near Union Square. The ambiance is not so cozy as the name sounds. Was rather ratchet/jazzy/bar-like. Approachable brunch spot esp for rainy day

    Pretentious model waitresses who take way too long to do EVERYTHING. But solid spot for upscale diner food and sweet bar area if u want to grab a drink with your laptop near Union square

    Besides typical regular diner fare, have great Latino eats like arepas, media noche, feijoada & many others. Be sure to order their pao de queijo!

    Here's the thing, the food here isn't really anything to write home about (except the Truffle Fries, duh), but it's a fun place to sip a cocktail and be seen.

    Convenient location and big menu. The burger was pretty good. If you need a place to take some family members who don't need to be high dined, this is a great option.

    The cheese fries are incredible! Cheese and flecks of basil throughout! You won't need to order that $2 cup of cheese on the side bc it has enough down to the last bite! Music is fun too!!

    The waitstaff here is terrible, but the food is good, it's fabulous for celeb spotting and people watching and tons of movies and TV shows have filmed here!

    Worth the wait-ish. Good burger. Good shake. Definitely a great spot if you can't find anything else. Amazing for that.

    The level of service (friendliness, courtesy, efficiency) has really improved since the last time I was here (summer '14). It was great.

    Nice husband/wife team will cook you just about anything. I like the grilled cheese or the pastrami on rye. Everything is quick and cheap!

    great place to eat, but very expensive for a bagel with bacon, lettuce and tomatoand a little arugula on the side for $20! great taste, expensive though

    In honor of the Tribeca Film Festival, try the "SAPPHIRE® Collins", fresh and light with just the right amount of sweetness.

    The granola is generously sized, and omits all fuller fruit - only berries and banana, with some dried fruit surprises too. So good.

    The food is definitely great, and yes, the eye candy is nice.. but when your appetizer comes out when your meal is done.. that's a problem.

    Great ambiance, better food than coffee. Good to go for low-key brunch, pre-work breakfast meeting or coffee while sightseeing.

    If you get the guy that waits on the patio tables, give him a break. He never has any help and the patio can get crazy on sunny days.

    Try the omelette as a scramble... Pancakes are also to die for

    Irving Farm coffee and a great place for a breakfast meeting. Hard to get your order in, but food comes out fast.

    The live Brazilian music on Sundays and beautiful waitresses make this a spot to come back to time and again.

    Have a seat outside, order chips and salsa w/guacamole and enjoy the beautiful union sq crowd. I guess waitresses are model or something.. could be any better ;) cheers

    Great for groups or after work drinks with friends. Also a good spot for food to cure a hangover :)

    More deals made per square foot than anywhere else south of 34th Street. Where nigthlife spends the day, if it wakes up before dusk. Juice bar strongly recommended for hair of the dog. [BlackBook] Read more

    This is your quintessential startup coffee shop. Didn't realize the cuisine's Brazilian here. I like it better for breakfast & coffee meetings than dinner.

    The raspberry caipirinha is yummy and fresh. Have one along with their fried calamari. Or my favorite, pao de queijo (Brazillian cheese bread). Even Atkins would green light this!

    Best thing about this place is the location. Grab a seat in the sun and watch the world go by.
