Thanks for the Breakfast/Brunch Recs!

  • 1

Thank you all for the breakfast and brunch recommendations! My husband and I had a wonderful trip and ate some equally wonderful food.

Clinton Street Baking Company was adorable! I loved the blueberry pancakes and was surprised by the copious amounts of blueberries. Yum! Huge portions.

Barney Greengrass seemed like a quintessential NYC experience. The nova lox was delicious with my everything bagel and surprisingly tasty scrambled eggs.

The crossiants at Patisserie Claude were AMAZING! Honestly, the best I've ever had. They were warm, flaky and buttery. I'm sad I only had a chance to eat there once.

I wasn't blown away by the bagels at Murray's, but it was nice and quick. Definitely better than your average bagel.

Brunch at Five Points was pleasant. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the hearty fare. It definitely fueled me for the day!

We also both enjoyed brunch at Prune. The wait wasn't so bad. They quoted an hour, and when we came back 40 minutes later they had already called our name. It is definitely a tiny space, but very charming. Smaller portions than Five Points, but that's probably for the best. The "Prune" juice was tasty.

My personal favorite breakfast item of the trip was the Sour Cream Hazelnut Waffle with Warm Berries at Balthazar. I typically go for the salty breakfast items, but this dish was fantastic!

Thanks again for all your help. If you find yourself in San Francisco, definitely check out my favorites for brunch: Universal Cafe and Canteen!
