Soho New York

New York City is a mecca for good food; every corner you turn there’s a new space tempting you with the scent of bagels and coffee. It’s actually pretty overwhelming, so we rounded up five of our favourite eating holes in the big apple so you don’t have to…

Penelope New York


Located near Midtown, Penelope is the place to be for breakfast. The staff are always wonderful, and with everything from pancakes to the best omelette in the city, nothing beats a morning nestled in their cosy space with a coffee. We advise getting their early on weekends, it’s a favourite among locals and can get a little busy.

159 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10016, United States

Bleecker Street KitchenBleecker Street Kitchen

It can be hard to find a good meal on Broadway, dodging the tourist traps and fast food spots that litter the yellow brick road into SoHo, but Bleecker Street Kitchen is a cut above the rest. Their sandwiches never fail to fill and impress, the cuban being our personal favourite.

643 Broadway, New York, NY 10012, United States

The Grey Dog NYCThe Grey Dog

Never before will you be served food by such a cool collective of humans. Their menu is expansive, with an impressive breakfast, brunch and lunch array. It’s the kind of place you can find yourself spending hours in when it’s colder outside, nestled among the homely interior with french toast or some chilli. One of our favourites.

244 Mulberry St, New York, NY 10012, United States

Peels NYCPeels

There aren’t many places you can get a good southern style breakfast on the east coast, but Peels NYC has it down pat; start the day with a heart serving of biscuits and gravy, an all american favourite. With a charming interior and central location, this is the place to spend your morning before a day on the town.

325 Bowery, New York, NY 10003, United States


Head into Tribeca and your spoilt for choice with good food, no wonder Robert De Niro chose to make this his neighbourhood. One place that really stands out? Bubby’s; you’ll feel like a local nestled among the New Yorkers who stop in here on the regular, spending your meal trying to decipher the layers of crayon scribbles on the wall and indulging in their home style cooking.
