“Very good !”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

My wife , Toddler and I stopped by Bubby's for some Brunch while visiting the High Line, we chose it as ever since we got together our nickname for each other was "Bubby" so we jumped at the chance
We walked in around 11:15 am and already it was quite busy ( on a tuesday morning ) but we were seated quickly and the staff were helpful.
Quite a different menu, a little expensive ( as you would expect for NYC ) and I wasn't very hungry and had difficulty finding something light that wasn't a Side dish, in the end I picked a breakfast I could share with my daughter consisting of 2 Homestyle pancakes and 2 eggs / chicken sausage....the eggs and sausage were good but the pancakes were AMAZING !!!, so fluffy and flavourful, there were times I didn't even need syrup on them they were so tasty.

Overall a good experience and its nicely located at the end ( or beginning depending on your perspective ) of the Highline, just wish there was a little more variety in the menu for maybe a wrap or something light.

“Ideal Sunday morning breakfast.”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Arrived at 0900 and it was already almost full. Sidewalk was packed with strollers and the inside was as creche-like as that might suggest. Good food but distracted wait-staff detracted from the enjoyment.
Will try again mid-week.

“Great local spot for our brunch”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

We were looking for something substantive for a late breakfast or early lunch before a day of sightseeing in the city. Bubby's really delivered. Eggs Benedict, Smoked Salmon, Granola and even the Scrapple were all well done. Service was friendly and very timely. While not sure a $20 per person breakfast can be considered a value it was well done.
