Great Jones Cafe
54 Great Jones Street
Great Jones Cafe is a cute little Noho restaurant were you are guaranteed to wait for a table but its well worth the wait. With fun christmas tree lights hung throughout the restaurant and a blasting jukebox, the wait is never too long and they offer you the menu before you even sit down. Once you get to the table the waitress is quick to pour you a cup of coffee and if you are ready she takes your order. I recommend the Andouille Omelet with andouille sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, onions, and cheese or the farmers market omelet is always a delicious choice. All the dishes come with your choice of corn bread (soooo good), biscuit & homefries (also sooo good), or grits.
Tiny's and the bar upstairs
135 West Broadway
Tribeca has a newcomer hangout spot called Tiny's, offering new American cuisine. Tiny's is in a old townhouse and the decor features a copper like coffee bar, pressed tin ceilings, and a Marlboro man poster. You MUST have the hamburger with pickled beets, fried egg, and a kaiser bun accompanied by sea salt potato chips-Amazing.
557 Driggs street
If you want to venture out of the city and have an absolutely amazing brunch (it is well worth it my dear city kids) El Almacen which in Spanish translates to a general store is the place to go. I recommend the the huevos racheros or the delicious dulce de leche french toast. After you have your cup of coffee I highly recommend the michelada (corona, lime juice, salted rim, cholula, over ice). buen provecho!
