Clinton St. Baking Company

This iconic brunch spot, famed for being one of, if not the best in the city, has even expanded to Singapore, Dubai, and Tokyo. What started as a simple brunch spot has now become the place to go if you absolutely have to have the best pancakes money can buy.

The restaurant uses locally sourced products and foods. And for the Portlandia-spoofed diner who wants to know exactly where their meal came from, all their vendors are listed on their website.

Let’s get back to pancakes. Named the best in the city, you really can’t go wrong here. This is so true that people actually wait hours to get them. If you don’t have the time for that, then plan to go when you do.

Other than delicious pancakes, Clinton St. Baking Company also serves the classics: huevos rancheros, eggs benedict, potato pancakes, and chicken and waffles. If you’re looking to expand your brunching palate, there is also the buttermilk biscuit sandwich, a Spanish or salmon scramble, or brioche french toast. Everyone loves french toast!

As far as booze goes, you’ll be welcomed with bellinis, mimosas, and bloody marys to give you a little hair of the dog when you need it.
