Native New Yorker... I know what's good around here
The Dutch has a great brunch that serves many classics like french toast and poached eggs. It's not overcrowded or too bustling and it's the perfect way to gear up for some shopping in Soho. Definitely try their iced coffee if you are in the mood for a pick-me-up.

Dessert before dinner!
Brindle Room is one of my favorite East Village restaurants, and it's my go-to for weekend brunch. It's relatively inexpensive with $10-15 entrees and everything on the menu is great. If you are a burger person, get the Sebastien Steakhouse Burger. I got this the first time I went here after my friend told me it was the best burger he's had in NYC, and I would have to say it's among my favorites.

Is that what you'd recommend here or what else is really good on the brunch menu? Thanks!

Jane has delicious food and I'd recommend it for dinner as well, but they are well-known for their brunch. They do the brunch classics really well, and my favorites are the french toast, the poached eggs and the rosemary potatoes. Like most great brunch places they get quite busy on the weekends, but they do take reservations. You are likely going to want to call at least a few days in advance to ensure a spot.

I consider Le Parisien to be a bit of a hidden gem, and it's one of my favorite value brunch spots in the city. You can get an entree along with a mimosa, coffee, OJ or sangria for only $16. It's a quaint bistro with a relaxed vibe, perfect if you want to avoid the overcrowded, bustling weekend brunch scene you find most everywhere else.
Always consistently good food and something for everyone. Great potato waffle eggs benedict and mac n cheese. Great for both a casual brunch with friends or a family brunch.

The potato waffles sound amazing! Do they come with specific toppings?
It has a spinach hollandaise I believe!
Cafeteria definitely has the chic, modern vibe going for it, and though they are open 24 hours brunch is definitely what I would recommend it for. There's lots of great cocktails and entree options (the chicken and waffles is my personal favorite), but the one thing you can't miss out on is the mac n' cheese. Their's three mini-bowls of mac, so you can split it with a friend.
Truffle Mac & Cheese!
Jacob's Pickles has a great soul-food brunch menu that has tons of options, and my personal favorites are the southern biscuit sandwiches and the chicken & pancakes. This is one of the best soul-food places in Manhattan and they extend it very well to the weekend brunch menu.
This is a solid brunch spot, especially if you are looking for something relatively inexpensive (~$15 per person) and where you can get a reservation last minute. It's not usually packed here, probably in part due to its location in the UES. I'd definitely recommend it if you are in the neighborhood and looking for something casual.

This is Fleischschnecke de Lapin, a dish that captures the greatness of Bar Boulud's brunch menu. It's an Alsatian dish of rabbit farce rolled into pasta, sliced and seared. Incredibly flavorful, unique, and comforting. No one else in NYC has this dish on their menu. There are, of course, the classics on the brunch menu as well, croque mensieurs, waffles, eggs cocottes... But always a unique touch. Oh, and their charcuterie program is fantastic, everything comes from the Daniel Boulud commissary kitchen shared with two Michellin starred cousin, Daniel.
