    Killer banana bread, omlettes and americanos. Pancakes are not the best choice. The interior is so hip kust as it should be as we are only metres away from NYU. Will definitely come here often.

    The sweet potato fries here are incredible. They're light, crisp and not at all greasy, but be careful stopping by during brunch or you'll have to wait a while for your sweet potato fix.

    Small space with 1 line for both coffee and food, but worth a trip. Great eggs with avocado as well as sweet potato tots. Breakfast quesadilla kind of falls apart but feels healthy with little cheese.

    Great menu and great vibe. Unlimited refills on coffee! They have a great selection of sandwiches and salad, too. The ideal place to meet a friend for breakfast during the week. You are lovely, GD!

    Try Grey Dog's Breakfast (pictured) on a hungry morning. Coffee, with free refills, is an extra.

    This cute and quirky cafe has an extensive selection of sandwiches, soups, and salads. Also good for brunch and, unlike most cafes, serves beer and wine.

    Super reliable spot for lunch. The Grey Dog has a cool, slightly crunchy atmosphere that I really dig, and good food.

    Love this spot. Great for any meal and I love the idea of ordering then seating and just having your food right there. Everyone is very nice and friendly on staff.

    Avocado toast is simple and delicious. The salads are awesome! My fave is the country style salad with grilled chicken. That house vinaigrette is insanely good!

    We love this tiny place for a delicious brunch – Get your fill with the Grey Dog’s Breakfast or be a bit healthier with the Homemade Granola. Expect to wait during the weekends.

    Slightly pricey and the place is crowded, but great tangerine (clementine?) orange juice and my turkey & brie sandwich was great. Used harvarti cheese, which I don't see often.

    Baked oatmeal at brunch, mac 'n' cheese anytime. Reuben and Cuban are only OK - bread wasn't buttered, Reuben had roast beef instead of corned. I've been coming here for years and keep coming back

    If you can, eat in. I've ways found the food to be better when you stay rather than take out or delivery. My go to is the palm of hearts and grilled chicken salad and pitcher of sangria!

    Challah French toast was good! Not great but good! I would definitely try some of their sandwiches next time (like the Guacamole grilled cheese with bacon)

    My favorite place for a casual bite to eat in the village. Best atmosphere ever due to EXCELLENT music, local artists' work and the most perfect lighting for relaxing.

    if nothing else, get an Arnold Palmer. The arugula salad with salmon and poached egg is good, tofu wrap has an interesting sauce, cookies are worth it

    Entering Grey Dog's rough-hewn cafe is like stepping back in time, but recently added, spicy, robust Bongo Java coffee brings one into the now. The seldom seen bottlomless cup lives on, here.

    Students at NYU (a 2011 Most Innovative Company) are drawn to this close-to-campus cafe, known for free Wi-Fi and good eats. Order a cup of the house blend and a chicken pesto sandwich.

    I turned up in my 'hangry' mode. After inhaling a grey dog breakfast we left carrying an 'On the house' scone. Home run! Loved it. Recommend to all!

    Great place for a meet up! Vegetarians: get the Country Style Salad with marinated tofu (sans onions). Huge portion and the tofu is cooked PERFECTLY- still hot with a cold salad. Delicious.

    Inevitably you need to meet someone at Union Square for breakfast. This is a pretty good move. Make sure you snag a seat before you order so as not to get stuck eating standing up.

    Grey Dog is the best place in the neighborhood to eat or grab coffee. Great food, cool staff, and they manage the tables well so half of them aren't filled with people working on their resumes.

    Healthy, tasty and convenient for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. You can order delivery / pickup or eat there.
