    Westville - brunch served on Sat & Sun only. Starts at 10am. Get there early cause it quickly gets packed and is a tiny place. Great, fresh ingredient oriented brunch items and quite inexpensive. I love the turkey hash and eggs.

      Gets my vote every time.

      I'd add:
      Odessa or Ukrainian National Home
      Cornelia Street Café
      Sacred Chow
      Elephant and Castle

      I always recommend Clinton St. Baking Company, at 4 Clinton St. near Houston. Breakfast on weekdays, brunch on weekends. Perfect pancakes and biscuits; prices are reasonable. Can be crowded on weekends.

        How inexpensive is inexpensive? $10?

        'ino does brunch with an entree coffee or tea, and juice for $11. 9th Street Market does something similar: $11.95 for an entree, coffee, and juice. Ditch Plains is also very cheap if you don't do too many add-ons.

          I'd suggest Cafe Mogador, especially if you can go on a weekday. You have more choices on weekends, but if you must go on a weekend, at least get there early, because it gets mobbed at peak times on weekends.

            Tartine is the best!

              I really like 7A. the food is quite good and you get your choice of entree (they have great waffles with fruit and bacon, eggs bennedict, omelettes, etc) coffee or tea, and a drink (bloody mary, glass of wine, screwdriver, mimosa) for $11.75

                Deborah (www.deborahlifelovefood.com) on Carmine between Bleecker and Bedford. Am reluctant to divulge how transcendent the food is (prefer to keep it to myself!) but her brunches are consistently divine and reasonably priced. Beautiful garden out back - the coffee is phenomenal and that sort of thing matters at brunch, I think...
