My wife and I sought this place out on our honeymoon and loved it instantly. Situated in a really cool part of the city. Excellent food and their Bloody Mary is to die for.

Went on New Year's Day for brunch. Place was buzzing. Hip crowd. Wall-to-wall people. Excellent food and great service. If in the West Village, Buvette is a must.

Very tight interior, tables are very small and the chairs are quite small as well. Service was good and my waffle was good as well. Prices are a bit high and portion sizes are bit small, but kind of expected in NYC.

We walked passed this little restaurant when we were strolling through the neighborhood, and because of its charming look and Michelin recommendation we went in to get a businesscard. A nice lady at the bar (who was having lunch) recommended us to eat there and...More

If you are annoyed by long waiting queues then this place is NOT for you. We entered after one hour but at least our expectations were met. Minimal menu with tasty dishes! Portions are not very big, nor small either. If you have got bored...More

Buvette is a terrific little french place with breakfast as well as late night food. Swung by to have a light meal before a flight home. Very limited options for vegans (they didn't even have non dairy milk so I just ordered espresso) so plan...More

I went to Buvette with my husband, son and daughter on April 2018. I had read that food is very good, so we were in NYC for a week on vacations and planned to go there for lunch. The restaurant is small and probably you...More

Looking for a great Brunch spot I stumbled on this treasure. In a cozy little spot in Greenwich Village this place isn’t big in size but is huge on flavor and authenticity! The speed of service as well as the hospitality is quite impressive. All...More

Food is very good, a bit limited for dietary restrictions such as Vegans. Service can be extremely disoriented on rush hours, not what you expected for the prices they charge. All tables are cramped to accommodate as many guests as possible.

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

A Croque is a sandwich. Normal size. It had some greens as a side. Condiments were not in the sandwich but offered separately.

You would probably have to wait just a few minutes because they open at 8am. Anyway, it's worth the wait!
