New York City is undeniably a treasure trove of cute brunch spots. Modern, chic places to eat have been the trend for some time now. Key elements for a successful restaurant include creative menus, charming decor, fresh ingredients, and delicious flavors. Being a passionate food enthusiast, I have a selection of favorite spots that I adore. Here is my list for 10 lovely brunch spots in NYC.



Epistrophy is a cozy café in SoHo. It's a cute spot for a casual brunch. I love the atmosphere of this place. It's decorated like a living room with rustic decor, adding a vintage touch, and feels extra welcoming. Here you can find a variety of brunch stables on the menu, including eggs benedict, avocado toast, and pancakes.

Are you a fan of a hearty brunch, good coffee, and a bright space? If so, definitely check out Outro. It is a cozy, clean, spacious spot near Union Square. They have so many options on the menu. I am obsessed with how colorful the food is here. The color combinations are so visually pleasing, and the little floral elements on top of it make me even happier. Some may think this is a "eat it for the gram" place, but no. The waffles here, both sweet and savory, are amazing. My favorite one is the avocado salmon waffle. It is always beautifully plated and freshly made. The soft, fluffy waffle just makes my day. I found Outro has one of the most reasonable prices as a decent brunch place in NYC. Each dish is super filling.

Good Thanks NYC

Australian cafes are certainly in trend now. Good Thanks NYC is one of the best. I adore the modern, clean decoration there, and they certainly have a good breakfast that will start the day. The Blue Bowl is so cute, filled with fruits and granola, and tastes just as good as it looks. I am a huge smoothie fan. This bowl is literally everything I want. The Poached Eggs on Toast is another star. Let the golden yolk soak up the toast, oh god, what could be better? There are so many things I love about this little spot. The staff is friendly and chill. This good vibe here makes me want to come back all the time!
