Live like a local: NYC Brunch Downtown

Bluestone Lane
Australian’s know their brunch, and this Aussie spot is a Manhattanite favorite. With cafes all over the city, the West Village location is my personal favorite for sitting al fresco for all-day breakfast. The avocado toast is to die for.

Jack’s Wife Freda
This Mediterranean restaurant masters both the middle-eastern classics and new wave dishes. I highly recommend the Carmine street location. Not only does it conjure up less of a crowd, but the interior is far cuter.

Calling all bagel lovers. This vintage-style SoHo spot serves up the fanciest, tastiest, and probably most expensive bagel and lox you’ll ever have. I promise you it’s worth it.


Navy is my favorite neighborhood gem. From a killer fish sandwich to a healthy grain bowl, every item on the menu is a winner. Low key and laid back on Sullivan street, you’ll always get a table and you’ll never be disappointed.


san ambroesSant Ambroeus
While the food at Sant Ambroeus is admittedly not incredible (but definitely not bad!), the ambiance at the West Village standpoint certainly is. Outdoor seating and celebrity sighting on picturesque West Village streets.

IMG_1827Egg Shop
The name sums it up. This little cafe masters all things eggs. Go on a weekday to avoid the crowds.

A little gem tucked into the Lower East side. With colorful tables and a health-conscious menu, this California-style restaurant is sure to start your day on a good note. Acai bowls and hearty grains take the win.
