Awesome breakfast

I come here from time to time for breakfast. The brunch crowds are a little too crazy for me so breakfast is a better option for me. Anyway, great food, they really know how to cook eggs, which is something that is hard to find sometimes. I always get the salmon scrambled eggs.

Found this restaurant by chance while visiting Greenwich Village. What a find. We had a great meal in a wonderful atmosphere. I had the very best Shepard's pie that I'v ever had (and I've eaten them all over the UK over the years!!). Can't wait to go back and try the chicken pot pie. We understand that it is the... More

The line was long at 11am on a Sunday, but it went by quickly. Brunch was delicious; the perfect spot! It's a little crowded upstairs but so homey and a great vibe. Highly recommend.

This seems to be a very hip brunch spot as there was a large young crowd there on the Saturday morning we visited. They didn't have a table for us so we decided to sit at the bar which was perfectly fine and we got quick service. I had a waffle with fruit which was filling but a bit dry.... More

We each enjoyed our dishes and the atmosphere. The Shepard's Pie was very good. Wait staff was attentive. Make a reservation if you do not have tmes to wait as it gets very busy. Lots of vegetarian options which was a plus.

We ate breakfast here both days we were in the city. Seriously the best pancakes I've ever had - get the apple ones! Not cheap but worth the money. Coffee and fresh OJ were great too. Super cute place - very homey feeling. Loved it!

We visited on a Sunday, at 10 am just before the Brunch Rush. Service was excellent even more considering the large amount of patrons. Food was very good. Everywhere in NYC they will take at least $25 dollars out of your pocket to serve you breakfast. Do yourself a favor and invest them in this restaurant, you will leave with... More

The food is fresh and delicious great enviroment and good and friendly service. The down side is the long queue but you can make reservation before hand. Some may think its a little too pricey but its not an everyday splurge. A place has to be try at least once.

We came for a late night light dinner. There was not many people at that time. The service was very friendly and pleasant. We had pasta with edamame and arugula salad, both very fresh. Overall the prices seem on the more expensive side but the quality and the service/atmosphere are very good.
