Prune -- How Early Should I Line Up For Sunday Brunch?

How early should I line up for Sunday brunch? If I get there around 10 am when it opens, can I count on being seated within the hour?

(please note: generous attempts to dissuade me from going will be futile ... I have my heart set on trying their brunch!)

      1. in my experience, if you're there by ten you will be seated right away. the crowd is not as big as clinton street, which has a full restaurant of a crowd waiting outside by nine forty-five! prune rocks. hope it was a good time!

        1. Thanks all for the advice, everyone--we ended up getting there at 10:30, and my friend and I were seated within 5 minutes.

          Great coffee. Huevos rancheros were so-so. The Dutch-style pancake was magnificent! Will definitely be back for that.

          1. the pancake is one of the few things i haven't tried yet so thanks for sharing! i agree the coffee is great. other suggested brunch dishes are the fresh ricotta, the spicy stewed chickpeas, and eggs en cocotte.
