Jacob's Pickles has the cozy atmosphere you'd expect at brunch, give or take a few UWS strollers. It's comfortable with brick walls and big wooden tables, making it a fun spot to hang out with a large group of friends in the back, or a small group in the front.
What to Eat
They've got an enormous (almost overwhelming) Southern-style menu with 13 Southern Biscuit Sandwiches, and instead of Chicken & Waffles, they're going Chicken & Pancakes. Of course, don't forget to try the various pickles -- their specialty!
What to Drink
The Jacob's Pickles bloody Marys are quite the talk of the town. They're topped with all kinds of fun garnishes like crispy bacon or hardboiled egg halves, all served in mason jars. However, the coffee is not so stellar, so you can skip it.
