    Dinner was excellent and the decor inside gives it a very cozy feeling. Very reasonable prices for excellent quality.

    Boomer special was great. I can see why they are known for their pancakes. Blueberry was awesome. Really cozy home atmosphere. #nom #nyc

    There typically is a wait at the cute brunch spot - especially if you want to snag a table outside, but it's well worth it. The omelets are amazing, and are all served right out of the skillet.

    Cozy, rustic breakfast spot nestled in gramercy. Has total farmhouse feel. House-made breads are delish and can’t go wrong with any of the breakfast items. Coffee (French press) is a little pricey.

    If you come here for dinner, they definitely make you feel like you're on a farm with no electricity. The food is delicious. Try the chicken pot pie. The ginger beer is natural.

    The line is pretty long on the weenends, but you won't wait too long if you're a couple. The boomer breakfast is great - scrambled eggs, pancakes, bacon and home fries. Great value for $17.

    The Bitches Say: B-. We had high hopes based on the ceaseless brunch line outside, but found it a bit over-hyped. The main dishes were tasty, but the small mistakes and inconsistencies added up. Read more

    They have a cocktail called "the agronomist" that is essentially a cucumber martini. Its excellent. If you go for brunch, the curried chicken salad is just "okay", BUT THE "ROSE CLUB" is excellent.

    Cute little breakfast spot. Line gets pretty nuts tho (like most NYC breakfast spots) so try and get there earlier. Everything I've had is good, and the coffee comes in a french press which is cute.

    Great salad, super tasty spinach meatloaf, yummy roasted brussel sprouts and the skillet baked chocolate chip cookie dessert was from another planet🌀🌀💫💫😀😀

    Definitely order an omelette. Any of them are delicious. I cannot say the same for the eggs benedict with spinach. I'm not fan of pancakes, but their apple pancakes are the heaven, so good.

    Love the ambiance-so cozy. The food is fantastic! Shared the crab cakes, mussels, and mac&cheese for apps. Had the scallops for an entree - have never had bigger scallops. Try the apple pie! So yummy!

    Truly amazing. Flavors were impeccable. Fresh & cozy. A not so hidden gem in NYC (it was packed with a line down the block). But extremely worth it. Chicken & waffles special and crab Benedict...WOW!

    Special today was chorizo-tomato scrambled eggs -10 pts of yum. Homemade hot sauce is quite nice, tasty, with a tiny kick for Trinis. My French friend pronounced it quite hot and preferred the Tabasco

    Nice spot to have a decent meal before a movie. Dinner starts with yummy cornbread and cinnamon apples. The tables and seating are really tight so expect frustrated waiters.

    Super cute space and really excellent brunch food. Always a tremendous line, but goes pretty quickly. Egg bennies and skillet dishes are spot on.

    You'll be tempted to sit outside and enjoy the views of Irving Place. Don't! Sit inside and upstairs if possible, the rustic interiors deserve your attention :)

    Super homey interior delivers the right vibe for new American cuisine. Get the baked cookie dessert served in a skillet.

    Loved the food! We came for brunch, and sat outside (no heat lamps). Salmon Benedict and apple pancakes were superb! Sadly, they don't have oat/almond/soy milk, and the coffee was disappointing.

    Definitely the best salads in NYC! (You can have blackened salmon added to any). All ingredients are locally sourced and it's an amazing spot for brunch.

    Best French toast ever but they charge extra for bananas with out mentioning it. The bacon comes out really cool but is hard to split.

    Best for brunch - skillets and omelettes are always solid (faves are Healthy and Working farmer). Pancakes melt in your mouth. Cozy vibe and always friendly!

    Good food, the healthy farmer omelette and cornbread are delicious. However, for brunch it was a long wait and the hostess kept seating people in an odd order, definitely not first come first serve.

    The line may be long, but once inside you'll feel like you're out in the country eating fresh omeletes in iron skillets, blueberry pancakes, corn bread, and some great french pressed coffee.

    This place is packed for weekend brunch for good reason. Fluffy omelettes and farm-to-table produce keep locals coming back for intimate meals in the rustic brownstone.

    Good food. The main dishes are very well priced for the size, but be careful with any sides, apps or drinks as they will overcharge you up the wazoo!

    Warm atmosphere with wholesome food. Usually a wait but if you go early there are tables. Griddle items and egg dishes are great. Solid potatoes.

    Gorgeous spot, friendly staff, delicious eggs and fresh pressed juice. Not the cheapest one, but it worthwhile. Try the fried is farmer eggs. ;-)

    Never been here and had anything that wasn't good. All breads and biscuits for sandwiches are delicious and homemade. Wish I could buy just the bread on a regular basis.

    Really cool rustic feel. Very underwhelmed by the omelette though. New sweeping rule: never order omelettes at a restaurant. Must come back for the all crab crab cake (2 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    If you want to feel like you're being healthy, order the egg white scramble. Try to remember to eat your own meal and not the person's who you're meeting for breakfast

    Killer brunch menu. The assorted breads (zucchini, lemon, corn) are always warm from the oven. Mostly everything is served in a hot skillet. Try the Gramercy omelet!

    Get the beet mashed potatoes and mac & cheese for the table. Great for brunch, their fresh juices are a little pricey but delicious.
