    Great for brunch (until 1 pm) with a ton of veg options. While the green eggs dish isn't filling, the kale is out of this world with its subtly sweet taste. 👌

    Treat yo'self to this burger and truffle fries. Absolutely incredible! It's a lot of food, so go splitty splitty with the gluten free pasta dish. Use the truffle fries as leverage.

    what tourists want in "soho": a cool crowd in a unique hole in the wall with healthy options that feels like a hidden gem. Unfortunately the teams ingredients aren't always fresh & waits can be looong

    Let me introduce Bronte to you. He will be your best friend for 10 minutes. Best 'different' burger so far. The pasta has no chance after this burger, but is good, too. I tried 'roasted vegetable'.

    Ruby’s, an Australian hole-in-the-wall, is one of the best spots in all of downtown. Its burgers are some of the best in New York. Try the Brontë burger with crispy fried Brussels sprouts. Read more

    Splitty-split on the burger and one of the pastas (spicy sausage!) is the way to go. One of the best casual lunch spots in the hood IMHO

    My Burger and the Chicken Salat were really outstanding. Be sure to go for the fancier burgers, the plain one is a bit boring.

    Bronte Burger: Keep it simple with ground beef, lettuce, tomato, sweet chili, mayo and cheese, then switch things up with toasted ciabatta bread instead of a bun. Ooo, living on the wild side. Read more

    Although I did not have it (and regret it) the burger my friend got (and I tasted) was amazing. Get the side of Brussel sprouts as well. Thank me later.

    This is a cool little restaurant with a garage door that opens up to the street. The crispy chicken salad is delicious. Ask for one of the two tables along the garage door and closest to the street.

    One of my favorite hearty salads in Soho is the roast vegetable salad with roast pumpkin, peppers, goat cheese, pine nuts, and arugula.

    Bronte burger and creamy chicken pasta were our choice. Both were really delicious, but the burger was slightly overly sweet for me. And the wine glasses are funny and cute.

    The Bronte Burger is freakin' amazing. It's messy, and a bit unorthodox, but so delicious. The truffle fries bring it to new heights. Bonus: Australian accents.

    All of the burgers are unique (the meat and the bun are...more Australian) and tasty. The real lunch winner is the chicken avo salad. Light and well-dressed, just like your favorite startup employee.

    Their Aussie-style Whaleys burger made with a meatloaf-y patty topped with beets, pineapple, and a runny fried egg may not be anything like a typical American burger, but it's still tasty. Read more

    Always packed but quieter if you do an early dinner. Pastas have interesting flavors without being obnoxious. Portion sizes are perfect.

    Hip & hot scene, good looking & tasting food, & great service. Small space & nearly impossible not to wait during any given day's brunch/dinner hours. Fun Aussie drink selection; no liquor.

    The Bronte is a great burger. Love the ciabatta bread, Thai sweet chili sauce and juicy burger. Side salad is alright but I guess better than filling on fries. Tiny tiny restaurant, sit by the window.

    The famous Bronte burger. As some reviewers stated, it's too sweet. Also the meat was a bit overcooked (I ordered medium but was served almost well-done). But every dish was tasty. Worth to go.
