A classic village restaurant that's perfect for a long lunch or breakfast. I love sitting outside and people watching while having a great glass of wine.

We were ambling around NY and stopped for breakfast. Just the nicest pancakes, with a blueberry compote that was fabulous. My eggs Benedict was equally delicious. Great coffee and mint tea. Loved it.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
