Cafe Cluny is classic New York City brunch. It's a must if you are new to town. The medium-sized space is cozy and comfortable, and decked out with fresh flowers and nature-themed decor from plant illustrations to bird figurines. If you're new to New York, you need to be broken in to our culture and this should be one of your first stops. You'll "get" New Yorkers and their brunch after this.
What to Eat
The Breakfast Sandwich and the French Toast are our top picks, the granola is some of the best we've had, and the fingerling potatoes that come with any egg dish are awesome. For dessert, try the Caramelized Banana and Vanilla Bean Pudding. Bonus: we love the chunks of fresh cut chocolate that come with the bill. Double Bonus: you can buy a bag of their specialty granola to bring home.
What to Drink
Cafe Cluny makes an excellent cappuccino, and their Alagash Shandy is quite good too if you want something alcoholic.
Reservations are accepted for parties as few as two people. (If you can get one, take it!)
