I travel to New York City at least once a year, and it has become my favorite city. I love the vibrant life on Manhattan, and the food you can find there is some of the best in the world. Along with my many trips to the concrete jungle, I have found plenty of places where I always eat brunch, and I have listed some of my favorites:

1. Dudleys
85 Orchard Street (Manhattan)
WHY: The ricotta pancakes speak for themselves
WHEN: Early! It gets crowded

2. Bluestone Lane
55 Greenwich Ave
WHY: Smashed Avocado toast!
WHEN: It usually isn’t way too crowded, but if you’re coming on a weekend you should be there early, and if you’re there in the summertime, try to get a table outside!

3. Jack’s Wife Freda
50 Carmine Street
WHY: Everything!
WHEN: Always crowded!

4. Two Hands Cafe
164 Mott Street
WHY: If you’re looking for a good Acai bowl, this place has it! And yeah, the avocado toast is quite good too!
WHEN: It is often crowded, so you’ll probably have to wait either way!
