5X Best Breakfast Spots in West Village, New York

In a completely food-obsessed city, the West Village seems to be a breakfast focal point. Not only is the food incredible, but the environment of that particular neighborhood gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling to kick off your day. Instead of skyscrapers, you’ll find brownstone, pre-war buildings. Add some classic New York fire escapes and cobblestone streets and you find yourself in West Village. Although we’re sure there are dozens of fabulous options to choose from, here are five of our favourite Breakfast Spots In West Village. 


Hundred Acres – 38 Macdougal St

Located right on the borderline of the West Village, SoHo and Greenwich Village, Hundred Acres is a Mediterranean-style restaurant that never disappoints at breakfast time. Unlike a lot of other typical NYC breakfast spots, Hundred Acres is spacious so a good choice is you have a large party – and they have a backyard garden area! They also take reservations on OpenTable which is super convenient when looking for the right place to eat. The lemon ricotta pancakes and the cinnamon rolls are both superb! hundredacresnyc.com

West Village draws fashionable crowds to its designer boutiques and trendy restaurants

Monument Lane – 103 Greenwich Ave

Any place with chicken & waffles on the menu gets an automatic thumbs up in my book. With outside seating during the warmer seasons, Monument Lane is a great place to people watch. Good food, friendly staff and a varying menu with plenty of different options to choose from – what more could you ask for?! They also give you an adorable little notebook to sign when you get the bill – it’s all about the little details and one of the reasons why it’s one of my favorite breakfast spots in West Village. monumentlane.com

Bluestone Lane – 30 Carmine St (*multiple locations)

A casual, Australian cafe that serves great coffee and simple brunch items. One of my favourite things about it – the staff are all Aussies! I like that this cafe gives me a taste of a different part of the world, all the way down to the carefully chosen decor. The avocado smash and the berry bowl are both delicious! bluestonelaneny.com

It seems to be the home of some cozy, quaint restaurant packed with people looking for a delicious meal and good coffee.

The Wild Son – 53 Little W 12th St

This restaurant is located on the border of the West Village and The Meatpacking District right next to the Hudson River. It’s small, so not ideal for large parties, but if you’re looking for a place to grab a coffee and some breakfast with a friend, this adorable restaurant is a great choice. They don’t take reservations, but stop in to put your name down and take a stroll along The High Line while you wait. You can’t go wrong with the blueberry corn waffles! thewildsonnyc.com

A trendy, upscale West Village brunch spot that you go to when you want to be seen. Covered in charming and tasteful decor, this modern French restaurant is a complete embodiment of the vibes of the village and could be a good location for a celebrity sighting. cafecluny.com
