Breakfast all day

I like the Cowgirl. I also like that I can have breakfast all day. The people are very nice and want you to be happy. They have a full menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also a full service bar.

This very delightful West Village restaurant had fantastic banana pancakes with "The Ranch Handler". I have never eaten better:). Great service and an atmosphere that reminded me of my mothers and uncle's upbringing in eastern Montana. Definitely a 5 star and a refreshing change from the frantic atmosphere of Times Square!

We stopped in recently to the Cowgirl for some of our favorites- Black eyed pea salsa, cornbread, veggie chili, all chopped up salad. Food and service were good as usual. The Habanero Margarita is a holiday special. It was really tasty. You can't go wrong with anything that you order. My daughter had the Mac and cheese which came with... More

The place is cool and the service is nice but if you are any hungry you're better off going somewhere else! These are the smallest portions I've had in similar places in this part of the city.

My wife and I were walking in the area when we came across cowgirl. The exterior is quirky and we were curious about the place so decided to call in for a drink and a bite to eat. The quirky theme continues on the inside and although it's kind of dated, I liked the place and it made me smile.... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
