    Super cute and cozy, perfect for date night. My tagliatelle was very rich and a bit too buttery but my partner really enjoyed his burger. The roasted baby lettuce was delicious. Enjoy!

    Very cute french cafe and one of the best breakfast spots in nyc. Go early if you want to avoid the wait. I recommend the berries w/ cream and the eggs.

    Grilled chicken is an outstanding dinner dish - sauce amazing and potatoes cooked perfectly; salmon, grilled tuna burger, and the steak frites are other notable winners. A must try for brunch as well

    Love the fried egg sandwich and the avocado toast. Brioche French toast is amazing but heavy so share it! Cafe latte also really good.

    Tho most of dinner here has lost its special touch, the Artichokes Barigoule & its out-of-this-world lemon-ginger broth make the whole trip worthwhile.

    A lot of the tips are for brunch, but this is also an excellent place for dinner. The lardon salad with egg, paired with a special soup, makes a nice, not too heavy dinner.

    Get the brioche French toast! Comes with fresh fruit and syrup from upstate NY. Also get the side of hash browns! Comes in the shape of a pie slice!

    Allan's favorite spot. So cozy here—you can drink, eat + talk for hours without noticing! Solid cocktails. For dinner? Start with the wild market mushrooms + try their octopus dish as an entree 🐙.

    "If you're out for a stroll near the corner of West 12th and West 4th Streets, this little cart is worth a stop. For its resemblance to banana pudding, the Banana-nilla wafer ice cream is our pick. "

    Not the best brunch in town, and selection is pretty limited, but tasty and pleasant overall. We had the highly recommended Breakfast Club Sandwich with fresh salad. Extra toast will cost you $5(!)

    Great service and food. Good place to have some upscale café food in a comfortable, cozy neighborhood spot. Chill for a few hours over a glass of wine.

    If you like banana pudding, you'll love the Banana Nilla Wafer ice cream at the summer ice cream cart in front of Cafe Cluny. It only appears sporadically, so you must be vigilant.

    Duck confit hash isn't the lightest of lunches but SO rich and delicious. All things egg related are a win.

    Great brunch (get the BLAT), but, surprisingly, they may have one of the best steak frites in New York. Don't worry if it's crowded; just go sit at the bar.

    You can't go wrong with the Duck Confit and the Caramelized Banana Pudding trifle. Both are beyond delish!

    Still one of the best classic frisée salads in town. Sit at the bar and enjoy a super-horseradishy Bloody Mary.

    This beloved French stalwart rebooted its menu in February 2013 & unveiled a sky-high CLUNY Burger so impressively jaw-stretching, it seems to challenge the Eiffel Tower. Read more

    Such a lovely place! If you like gin, get the Camomile and Ivy cocktail (St. Vincent is a bit too too for me. It's not as grapefruity as one would expect.)

    Cozy bistro with a perfect burger. The servers are somewhat aloof, but look smart in the St. James striped shirts.

    The strawberry rhubarb tart is one of the best deserts I've ever had. The hash browns and the eggs Benedict were stellar as well. Highly recommended.

    Usually a wait for brunch/dinner on the weekends, however, you're in NY put the phone down and talk with your friends or your date—it's worth the wait.

    NY. One of our favorite brunch spots, Café Cluny brings elements of a French café’s menu and mood to the big city. The Cluny Burger add bacon is a must-have dinner entrée.

    Our go-to brunch place in NYC. Food is amazing, hip without the pretension. Get there before 11:30p or expect a wait. Baby/stroller-friendly.

    Honestly....I've only ever had the tuna burger. It's amazing and until I grow tired of it, I will keep having it. It's not boring, it's just THAT good. 😍

    Friend chicken sandwich is incredible. Get it with the side of fries, which are thin and covered with herbs and delicious.
