This place is fun. Sit near the sidewalk and enjoy the people arriving and walking to work. We stopped by twice for breakfast last week and will return everytime we pass through P.S. This breakfast and lunch spot has a full bar and is known for its $3.95 bottomless champagne (mimosa OJ is extra). They bring you your own bottle.... More

We dined here for breakfast on a Friday morning. There was no wait to be seated. Menu has lots of choices. One of us had the Eggs Benedict and I had the French toast. Both were good. Food was delivered hot. Coffee left a lot to be desired. Service was good but could have been a little more attentive. Our... More

i was advised to check out this little spot by a lady at the hotel im staying at. i was a little skeptical at first seeing as it is only open for breakfast and lunch, (in my experience this is usually due to a lack of nighttime popularity) though i can say that I was surprised by how great the...

The number of negative reviewers that speak to Pinocchio's being "too crowded" or "too crazy" clearly had inaccurate expectations prior to arrival. This is a busy, fun place for brunch at any hour (before 2PM). If you think the bottomless sparkling wine is cheap, you're correct it is cheap, and EXCELLENT. Complainers need to throw back one glass and then... More

this place was super busy even on a Monday! the wait wasn't long but they had a lot of tables pretty close so you better like who you are sitting next to. We went for the idea of bottomless mimosas, which for 3.95 is a great price but in the fine print its really the champagne that's 3.95 bottomless and... More

There's a lot to like about Pinocchio in the Desert, not the least of which are the portions. Yes, it's popular and noisy, but lots of fun. Very NYC deli menu items. Omelets were good. My wife ordered a mimosa and ended up w a bottle of champagne and carafe of OJ, each for just $3.95! Service was friendly and... More

We asked a local business where he thought would be a great place to have breakfast. Suppose to have had great bloody Mary's and known for their eggs benedict. Well I have to say, I'm not a professional chef, but the Hollandaise Sauce sucked. Just saying. The blood Mary's we ok, but not mind blowin. It was ok but I... More

We had breakfast twice during this visit with the bottomless champagne for only $3.95 per person. Good food, good prices, good service.

Food was good, decent portions for a decent price and service was good. Close quarts and too cramped for my liking. Next time will order our food to go.
