Located in the bohemian greenwich village, this small cafe offers a perfect breakfast. It is pricy. For an avocado egg toast, egg sandwich, latte and an americano we paid approx. 45 dollars. Yet, it worths it. We went there on tuesday around 10.00 am and found a place immediately. However, it can be very crowded on sunday-saturday.

Went here for a solo brunch last weekend. I had the avocado toast with poached eggs, which was delicious. The restaurant had a really nice and friendly vibe, and the staff were very friendly and chatty. It's a small place, and very popular. Would definitely recommend. I look forward to visiting again next time I'm in New York.

went 3 times on our holiday because they make delicious and healthy (although very big if you're British) breakfasts. Service was great, and it's a cute small but comfortable place to eat. Thank you.

Lovely small restaurant with friendly staff and a great menu. I ordered the steak-frites: the steak was excellent! Good fries as well. My wife had the chicken: Very good too! Would definitely recommend 👍

This is our favorite little restaurant when we are in the city. Our family of four had another outstanding breakfast yesterday at Joseph Leonard. We started the experience with a round of cilantro infused bloody mary's which are quite tasty. The bloodies come with a small beer chaser which wasn't necessary but we always appreciate the attitude. Our boys thoroughly... More

We stumbled upon this cute and small food joint. While entering it seemed a little crowded but the servers where great in accommodating us. Went for a classic order, double cheeseburger and chicken. When the food arrived and we started working on it we were blown away. It was DELICIOUS!! I have to say that they prepared the best chicken... More

After a long day with a mere hot dog for lunch, we were desperate for food. It was an unseasonably warm night in February, and everyone was on the town. We stumbled onto Joseph Leonard and were told there'd be an hour wait. When we looked like we were going to cry, the wonderful maitre d' took pity on us,... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
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 stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
