Late afternoon lunch, Quick service, and pleasant as well. Didn't feel rushed. Amazing food, portion sizes were right as well. Fairly priced. Great environment. Would easily come back

Had breakfast there. The grown ups and teens really enjoyed it, a bit harder for the younger ones. Nice toasts and delicious pastry Celebration!

I went here for breakfast (twice) and both times ordered their waffle sandwich... TO DIE FOR. Basically, delicious waffles, maple syrup, bacon, and lots of butter. The espressos were also very good. Unfortunately it is very tiny inside and both times we were seated in...More

When we think of Greenwich Village we think of Buvette. What a find this was, a big line of brunchers out the front flagged this was a place worth waiting for. We explored the Village but happened upon it again much later (around 3pm) and...More

Delicious brunch at Buvette. We sat at the bar which was perfect for people watching. Service was great. The plates are not the usual very large size that one often receives in New York and are definitely manageable for an individual.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
