    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

    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

    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'.

    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

    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.

    Bronte burger is amazing. Added bacon of course. Creamy chicken pasta is delicious. Nice cozy spot.

    Really like this place. It's super super small but can always manage to get seats. Salads and pasta are both awesome. Apparently the burgers here are great too cc @xy (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Everything is good. Can't go wrong. Go at an off peak hour so you can enjoy.

    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

    Awesome spot. Farro and haloumi salad. Brussels sprouts are a MUST. Bronte burger is hardcore but pretty awesome if you're really hungry

    This is a great breakfast/brunch spot! I love the big, floor to ceiling windows and the seating next to those. Perfect for people watching :). They serve delicious, imaginative salads.

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

    Tiny place but amazing food. Panini was great, jealous I didn't get pasta or burger though. Try an Australian beer!

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

    Pasta dishes were great, but a side dish of sweet potato fries w/ sweet chili sauce & sour cream was actually the best.

    The Whaley w egg beets and pineapple will blow your mind. By far one of the most tasteful and creative burgers I've had.

    Try the Whaleys Burger - Another smash hit of juicy beef and perfectly prepared toppings on a fresh roll. Outstanding option at one of my favorite places in NYC

    Try the Bronte Burger - Truly the best burger I've ever had in NYC. Absolute perfection at a relaxed and airy lunch spot.

    Salad lovers, try the apple prosciutto salad. Fresh apple chunks, crispy prosciutto, and bits of toffee for a salty-sweet surprise. Light eats but satisfyingly full of flavor.

    Wanted to find probably the best burgers in NYC? Whispering: it's here! Awesome place! Tiny. But really atmospheric and definitely worth to visit.

    Had a great burger - try to get there before the dinner rush because the place is small. There was a long wait when we finished eating.

    A wide variety of healthy options, including the quinoa bowl and shrimp and avocado salad. Bronte burger is also delicious, if you're feeling unhealthy.
  • Danielle B.
    The classic cheeseburger and the lamb ragu pasta are my favorites so far. Very reasonable spot for the neighborhood. Maybe that's why it's always so packed.

    the biggest chunk of ground beef on a burger. get the bronte for the sweet chili kick with a side of thin crispy fries.

    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.
  • Amanda M.
    Everything at this place is amazing - the bronte burger, the creamy chicken pasta, the salads, the juices - and reasonably priced. Amazing place

    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.

    Awesome Aussie joint. Get the Bondi or Bronte burger (named after 2 beautiful Sydney beaches). Wash it down with Coopers pale ale

    Breakfast is served until 1pm! Get the B.L.A.T., thick cut bacon, avocado, and an egg on a BLT. Heaven mate!

    The fries are to die for. The blueys chicken burger is also superb and often overlooked. The banana and date shake is a bit meh.

    Excellent burger choices. If you are in a salad mood, try the roast veggie salad.

    You can go traditional with the vegemite toast for brekkie, or play it safe with the avocado toast. Read more

    Just get the Bronte Burger. The default (and only) side is a salad, but you won't be needing anything else.
