    One of my new favorite restaurants in NYC. Obsessed with the ambiance and food. Got the buckwheat waffle - the perfect sweet breakfast.

    Take visitors here for a true NY ambiance. Cant figure out how they made my baguette so flakey and crispy

    Really good place and amazing quality price ratio. Definitely a great place for a quick lunch

    Food is not bad... Bit rude service

    Baked eggs and avocado. Ask for extra bread and apply food heavily to your piping hot open faced sandwich.

  • angela g.

    Lovely dinner! We made a meal out of the different vegetarian sides and apps, and it was filling, and delicious. Get the cauliflower shortbread, and the Haricots Verts!

    Cute lil spot! Nice menu.. Not sure if it's farm-to-table, but it certainly seems and tastes like it. The staff isn't as friendly as the name might imply, but hey, can't win em all.

    Eggs and steak are good, almost no vegan options, but vegetarian friendly! Love the atmosphere

    Good food- but, the slowest service I've had in any nyc restaurant

    Hayley Strichman · April 27

    Space can be a bit loud but otherwise nice. Food was good overall. Enjoyed the celery root and cauliflower crumble.

    I'm not an oatmeal guy but a tip said to try the oatmeal. So I did. Surprisingly good. Still not an oatmeal guy but I would definitely get it again here

    Sides don't usually steal the show haricots verts were amazing

    The best steak and eggs I've ever had. Steak is tender, it's mixed together with the over easy eggs, and comes with finely chopped sweet potato hash.

    The scene is cool but the food is a bit overhyped. The chicken Harissa sandwich is hugely overrated. The bacon, however, is not.

    ZZubin · March 25
  • Cole K.

    The Harissa honey roasted chicken sandwich is super delicious, and is served on a warm, crusty on the outside and soft on the inside baguette. Get it (and don't forget the pickles).

    I would start a religion around the maple thyme bacon.

    Emily Kane · March 16

    Baked eggs are the way to go with a side of sausage or smoked salmon 👌

  • Perri S.

    I'm not kidding when I say their bacon is the best bacon I've ever had. I usually don't order oatmeal out but it is phenomenal here.

    Perri Silver · February 26
  • Eleonora C.

    The ambient is very dark and the staff is not very kind. We had to wait 45 minutes standing only because 1 person was late." You cannot sit down at the table without all ur friends". Good the bagel

    How do they not have normal hashbrowns, potatoes, or fries

    A great date spot at night or a meeting spot in the morning.

    Baked eggs were great. The ricotta & pear dish - so so.

    Annie Kearns · February 8
  • Sonia G.

    Their mochas are delicious . Food seems just subpar but good atmosphere

    Great brunch and coffee. Occasional celebrity sighting as its a neighborhood favorite.

    Lee Byron · January 10
  • Barry B.

    Could we get just a regular salad here with lettuce, tomato and cucs?

    Barry Bloom · January 8
  • Catherine C.

    Bad WiFi signals here, but great ambiance.

  • Mario P.

    Fratty atmosphere and indifferent service. The eggs baked with avocado were so overcooked that they were almost hardboiled. The drinks were overpriced at $12. I would have paid $8 max.

    Great quiet spot in Noho. Breakfast until 4:30pm.

    Brunch cocktails were not that good. Egg sandwich was uninspired. Ambience is very enjoyable

    Alex Limpaecher · December 28, 2014

    Quinoa & kale salad is yum

    Shannon O'Flynn · December 22, 2014
  • Ros O.

    Spiked cider, seared Thai beef - amazing explosion of flavour

    Ros O' Flynn · December 22, 2014
  • Barton S.

    Ignore the rest of the drinks menu and get the spiked cider. It's delightfully smooth.

    Barton Smith · December 12, 2014
  • Omar A.

    I came here for a sandwich, which was great (egg with salmon on multigrain), but that coffee...probably one of the best brewed coffees I've had in the area...sorry La Colombe.

    Omar Ahmad · December 7, 2014
  • Jeffrey G.

    I like the Thai beef salad, great vinegar dressing, although I wish it were organic grass fed beef

    Jeffrey Glueck · December 1, 2014
  • Becca M.

    Maple bacon frisée sliders. Don't skip 'em.

    The Quinoa is incredible!
