“Very nice place for brunch in the LES”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Had the eggs benedict. It was delicious. Came with potatoes and orange juice. My only disappointment was that the 'small' orange juice was probably not much more than a shot glass and the waitress didn't really check up on us in time for me to order another one. Great atmosphere and it's reasonably priced so I'd recommend it.

“Brunch is the best”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

My wife and I had brunch here on our last day in NYC. The atmosphere was that of a bustling Sunday morning in the city. The service was adequate considering the amount of customers in the restaurant. The food was quite good and was more than enough to fill almost anyone. The pumpkin pancakes with the cinnamon butter were wonderful!

“Perfect breakfast spot”
Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

Cafe Orlin is the perfect breakfast/brunch place in the East Village. We were staying in the apartment building upstairs and we could of had breakfast there everyday. The pumpkin pancakes with cinnamon yogurt were dense and flavorful. Perfect combo! Gotta get the coffee, the vanilla cappuccino was by far the best we had in the city. Highly recommend.

“Good brunch menu, average coffee”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

The brunch items are delicious. Get an outside table if the weather's nice. Skip the coffee and get it elsewhere.
