What a delightful place to have breakfast, brunch or lunch. Table and counter seating is available. The menu has so many good items it’s hard to make a choice. I recently took a trip to the south and I felt like I was right back there. From the Po’boy catfish, the fried green tomatoes, fried chicken and waffles and buttermilk biscuit sandwich I thought I was in heaven. I had the Southern Breakfast which was two eggs any style, sugar-cured bacon cheese grits and fried green tomatoes. There are many other choices on the menu - so hard to choose ! The portions were plentiful and wait staff was efficient, pleasant and attentive. They also offer some “spiked drinks” - mimosas, bellinis and the Clinton Street Bloody Mary. I went on a weekday but be advised weekends can be crowded with lines. Cash only no credit cards accepted.

Every time I'm in NY, I try to come here for pancakes. Really good and really fluffy (often I find pancakes too dry). I highly recommend coming here for breakfast. However, you have to wait for a long time to get a table and you can only pay cash.

Went in for brunch with 4 friends. Had to wait one hour for the table but it was worth it. American style brunch dishes, recommended the pancakes and the chicken sandwich.

The pancakes were delicious and it was a very big portion. If you are not a big eater, then share it! The oats were also very tasty.
As it is quite popular it is very crowdy, which makes the staff somehow hectic because they want to serve as many tables as possible.
If you want to enjoy a long and relaxed breakfast then this is not the place for you.
The food is definitely worth a visit though!

We were in line before the place opened at 9:00 on a Sunday morning and when it opened the place was instantly full with folks waiting outside. That's the kind of place it is.
Having said that, is the food all that fantastic? It's good, but I certainly wouldn't wait an hour or more to eat there.
The latkes were good but a bit sour for my taste. You can choose from sweet side (home made caramelized applesauce and sour cream) or savory (smoked salmon with sour cream and caviar). The tortilla soup is good and very large and filling. My companions loved their pancakes, which were also large and filling.
All in all a good place but I'm not sure it's worth all the hype.
OH -- CASH ONLY!! Be prepared.
