A relative newcomer to the brunch scene, Cafe Clover strikes that perfect balance of providing both classically indulgent brunch treats with a twist (the quinoa pancakes with apples and cashews) and some more virtuous options (like the heirloom grain bowl) in line with the fresh seasonal food that has quickly made this a new Village hot spot.

The outdoor seating is shady and great for summer weather, but I actually prefer the cozy and cool retro "grand cafe" decor inside.

This is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant that has a certain chic, warm atmosphere that manages to remain unpretentious. Their menu is seasonal, so you'll have a reason to keep coming back throughout the year to this charming neighborhood spot. As already mentioned, the outdoor seating makes this perfect for the summer.

Agave is a really popular west village brunch spot that you usually need to book a week in advance if you're planning to go on the weekend. It's great for a group that's looking to have fun since it's pretty packed, upbeat and offers an entree and 2 hours of unlimited margaritas, mimosas, sangria or Bloody Mary's for $28. Get the outdoor seating if you can during spring and summer months.

JP doles out southern food with a Jewish twist in a craftsmen-style restaurant with high-ceilings and an even higher energy. Admittedly, his best dishes aren’t always the healthiest, but the food somehow still remains startlingly refreshing despite this. And there’s a range of options. The fried chicken is, naturally, bomb diggity. My personal favorite go-to item for brunch, though, is The Coop Platter which includes 3 fresh eggs, sterling bacon, sausage patties, heavenly grits, hash browns and a biscuit… for $15. Yes, I dream about it. Pair breakfast with an Apple Pie moonshine, Rosemary Vodka Lemonade or a Bloody with thick-cut bacon and you’re golden.

This place is sort of trending right now, so the biggest drawback there is the wait. You can make a reservation only for 6 or more people. Otherwise, be prepared to wait 1-2 hours. As long as you plan for this, it’s not a big deal. They send a text when your table is ready and there’s a number of bars in the area to grab a drink at and kick back (my top suggestions: Café Lalo, E’s Bar and Fred’s)

Loved this recommendation! Looks like it'd be a great spot to bring a big group of friends if you have to have 6 or more. Thanks for the tip!

Great food (the majority of the menu is seafood), chill vibe during the day (love the beer hall on the first floor), and a huge outdoor seating area right on the Hudson River (I think it seats over 300 people!) Had the Mangalitsa pork bratwurst with sauerkraut and German potato salad for brunch -- loved it!

Pier A Harbor House is a historic, recently renovated building with beautiful views of the Hudson. They serve great seafood, including Blue Point Oysters, in an almost beer-hall like venue. The service can be a bit slow given how large the space is, so go in expecting that, but it's otherwise a unique and enjoyable place for brunch during the summer.

The rooftop brunch at Hotel Chantelle seems to be a bit of a hidden gem since I don't typically have any issues getting reservations there. They have a very nice brunch menu, including a family-style prix fixe if you are going with a group of friends. They serve $5 mimosas and bloody mary's, and serve a special Strawberry Lime Rickey cocktail for only $0.92 (yes, seriously). The best part is the live jazz band, which gives the rooftop a lively atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Slightly upscale venue that's perfect for a brunch before or after visiting the Natural History Museum. They don't get overly crowded and it's usually pretty reliable to get seated here right away without needing a reservation. They have great people watching (if you're seated outdoors) and views of the surrounding area, and the brunch comes out to around $20 a person. The eggs benedict is superb and my go-to brunch dish here.
