“Amazing food, atmosphere and value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

I cannot recommend Buvette enough. we had the Croque Madame for breakfast on our first morning in New York and fell in love with the food and charm of the small restaurant.

Cannot recommend highly enough and will be going next time I am in the city

“Fantastic Secret!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

Exploring the West Village and Soho ensures that you bump into great finds such as this place on what otherwise is a residential street. Great food and fantastic service. We had lunch but the menu is predominantly a breakfast food place but it suits any time of day. The Croque Madam was amazing and the virgin bloody mary to help with the night before was just the right order. Nice coffee and the pastries are amazing. Worth the scouting trip to track this place down!

“Just Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

I went to Buvette on a alone trip for breakfast/brunch. I loved the ambiance, the decor, the menu. You can clearly see that the details are important in the overlook of the place.
But I find it a bit pricy. 6.50 for a small bowl of café au lait, and 7.00 for two tinny croissant with jam and butter on a tea spoon... I have to say I was expecting something something a little bit bigger. You definitely don't go there if you are very hungry.
I would however go back there on a further trip.

“Best eggs ever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

I have just come back from a ten day trip to the USA and I have already told several people about the breakfast of eggs and goats cheese I had at Buvette. This is a gorgeous cosy restaurant that I would highly recommend. We were a little crammed in next to another couple but to be honest, the food is so good that it didn't really matter!
