New York is the city that never sleeps. After all, how can you sleep when you have so many different restaurants to try? If you’re looking for a brunch that meets your hunger, taste buds, and Instagram like numbers, make reservations at one of these spectacular gems!

Sweetchick NYC

Sweetchick is a special place not only because they offer both weekday and weekend brunches with a mix sweet and savory dishes, but also because they offer vegetarian chicken and waffles! If that’s not your style, order the ricotta pancakes with seasonal compote and macadamia butter, or try the mac and cheese (3 cheeses with a Ritz Cracker topping).


For $35 a person, you receive one entrée and unlimited Bloody Marys, screwdrives, and mimosas. That means you should order Challah French Toast with Bananas Foster Sauce or Shrimp ‘N’ Cheesy Bacon Grits to hold you down during your drunching. Make reservations in advance for the winner of the Open Table’s 2018 Diners’ Choice Award as they only serve brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

Lips New York

Looking for a brunch experience? Head on over to Lips New York for their Sunday Broadway Drag Show Brunch! For $31, you receive a Broadway inspired dish with unlimited Bloody Marys and Mimosas. Get their Wicked Eggs Benedict or Sister Act Salmon Benedict, and enjoy the performances!

Clinton Street Baking Co.

This brunch spot is all the rage when it comes to their pancakes, served in a variety of seasonal and regular flavors, with a side of their butter infused maple syrup. If that’s not sweet enough for you, order a hard blueberry lemonade (or a virgin one if alcohol isn’t your groove in the a.m.) This spot doesn’t take card, so be sure to bring cash, and lots of it.

Scriptum Brooklyn

This restaurant may be the most instagrammable on this list! They are vegan/vegetarian friendly, and their entrées come with lots of components. If you’re feeling on the savory side, order the soft leek and vegetable frittata, truggle vinaigrette salad and parmesan fondue entrée (all that for $13.50!) or their French toast with chef made pear and ginger confetture, chocolate ice cream, and almonds ($12.50!)
