We have found this place on Google and it is amazing. I had the breakfast special, eggs, potatoes and bread, everything was perfectly cooked, that cappuccino was really good, and I'm Italian, my expectations on coffee related stuff is pretty high! My friends had pancakes and they were really as good as they looks. Super suggested for a good breakfast!... More

Great brunch place! Pretty good prices, nice options, great smoked salmon, good outdoor space. Exactly what you would expect from a good brunch place in this area.

Good pasta, the hummus appetizer was great, just wish we had more stuff to scoop up the hummus. Service was perfect.

The service was fine but the haloumi on my salad was rubbery and cool, and the zata'ar on the pita had no flavor at all, it was just dusty/gritty. Disappointing. Guess we should have known something was up when the place was only half full on a Friday night... caveat eater 😉.

Five of us had dinner at Cafe Orlin on a Monday evening and it was lovely. There is both indoor and outdoor seating, but on a chilly October evening we opted for indoors, which was very comfortable. Everyone enjoyed their meals, especially the two vegetarians in our group. We started with splitting a Tuscan Kale Caesar Salad. Excellent! The veggie... More

What a great find! My friend and I found this gem while roaming the neighbourhood one morning on vacation. Great location with both indoor and outdoor seating. Waitress was super fantastic and very helpful with directions Menu had a variety of healthy options. Food was hot and tasty, very fresh. A wonderful New York cafe.

Great place for brunch, even better if you can sit outside, although there is a lot of room inside! Quick service, but no refills on coffee or tea!

With the food being so good, I didn't mind the unfriendly service. That about sums it up for my Sunday brunch experience. The place is big but gets really crowded towards lunch time so come early or reserve a spot. Food portions are generous and I can recommend the goat cheese inlet, malauch (carbs at their best!), Poached eggs over... More

You have your choice of indoor or outdoor seating. We sat outside. Silver metal tables weren't that attractive, and the busboy saw how wobbly the table was and stuffed some napkins under one leg. It wasn't crowded, but the service was a little slow and waitress a bit inattentive. But the food was good and worth the wait. I had... More

It is not hard to find a breakfast / brunch place in New York City, but a really good. This one really makes a difference because they use ingredients of high quality and you can taste that. Better come with a reservation or be an early bird. You won't regret it!

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
