You’ll love or hate this ultimate place to see and be seen. For fans and hanger-ons, it’s THE spot for celebrity runins – we saw Jude Law and Sienna Miller! (No autographs, please).
Your mission: to land a table on the sidewalk. On a sunny day, perusing the menu under a canopy, soaking in the scenery on this lovely stretch of West Village, you’ll feel like you’re in a Mediterranean country.
Varieties of olive oils from all around the world are the speciality of this restaurant, which offers an amazing brunch.

This is not the place for fine food, lounge atmosphere or sexy young waitresses but it’s not a problem.
Barely inside, you’ll hear a cute “Hi sweetie” over the noise of the kitchen in the main room. Like in every American diner, you can choose what you want in any style for less than 10$: eggs, pancakes, waffles, French toast, you name it! Read the rest of this brunch »

It’s the only negative point (along with the cash only policy) but coffee is offered while you wait. Prices are more than reasonable : 14$ prix fixe with Apple Cider Mimosa or coffee/tea and orange juice. Read the rest of this brunch »
