6. Tartine (253 West 11th Street)
This French bakery-bistro has become famous for its signature brunch, with all dishes fixed at $16.50 in a chill, low-key West Village location.
Their eggs benedict rank amongst the best brunch dishes in the entire city, served with spinach, Canadian bacon, or smoked salmon with a poached egg bedded on top of an English muffin and covered in savory hollandaise sauce.
Tartine also serves a BLT you can believe in, served on healthy and hearty 7-grain toast. Seriously, this place just exudes shear brunch awesomeness.
7. Sweet Chick (164 Bedford Avenue - Brooklyn)
If there was ever a food that seriously exemplifies what brunch should be, it has to be chicken and waffles. One part breakfast plus one part brunch equals a dictionary definition of brunch.
Sweet Chick, a Brooklyn restaurant that specializes in southern comfort cuisine, features many varieties of chicken and waffles on their dinner menu, but let's skip that for now, folks, because we came here for brunch.
During brunch, the dish is served in its most classic outfit: a belgian waffle with two pieces of moist, tender fried chicken. But please, don't leave this place without trying their chicken and waffles. That's what you came here for, duh!
8. Clinton Street Baking Company (4 Clinton Street)
There's no official brunch menu at Clinton Street Baking Company, but if you're like me and you lean towards the breakfast side when you go to brunch, then you'll want to come to this place
Clinton Street Baking Company consistently has some of the best pancakes in the city, and if that's what you're looking for, then look no further than this LES eatery. Breakfast is served all day, so you can make it brunch, lunch, or dinner if you want to.
You can choose your type of pancake, be it plain, blueberry, chocolate chunk, or banana nut. The pancakes are served warm with melty maple butter oozing down the sides of your pancakes. Yes, yes, yes please.
9. Sunshine Co. (780 Washington Avenue - Brooklyn)
This Brooklyn spot is just good vibes all around, with a happy atmosphere and great food to boot. Sunshine Co. prides itself on having really awesome food that uses the freshest ingredients, all for reasonable prices.
Baked eggs and hashes filled with healthy veggies and citrus french toast are all as fresh as fresh can be, and you'll savor every last bite of this feel-good food.
10. Agave (140 7th Avenue South)
The breakfast burrito is evidence that Mexican food and brunch just work so well together, so if you're into a southwestern twist on the usual brunch dishes, then check out Agave.
You can count on breakfast delicacies being combined with classic Mexican dishes during Agave's brunch. The spicy cured chorizo will do the unthinkable and replace bacon in your mind when you eat here. Also, you've definitely had a breakfast burrito but have you had a breakfast quesadilla? *gasp*
Come here for a baller Mexican brunch, leave a thousand times happier, repeat.
