Jody Williams likes to think small, and whereas her old haunt, the diminutive Gottino, was what she called a gastroteca, the 50-seat Buvette is her French-inspired gastroteque: a place where people ... Read more

The eggs are good but I wouldn't wait more than 20 minutes for them. I thinks its over hyped.

Often listed as one of the best brunch spots in NYC. Exceptionally quaint and the food quality is good but, like many "in" places, Buvette is a bit full of itself. Portions are tiny for the price and the staff were unfriendly and almost machine-like in ushering us quickly through our meal despite having plenty of open tables. Reservations aren't accepted and waits are long on weekends. Try them on a weekday afternoon.

I love Buvette! The decor was cozy despite the small space and the food was rich and delicious.

Brunch is to Manhattan, what tapas are to Madrid. Fancy your eggs steamed with an espresso machine wand resulting in a fluffy, yet creamy texture? Don’t mind if I do. And how about putting them atop a piece of country bread toasted as to be perfectly charred on the edges, drizzled with olive oil and then additionally topped with silky thin slices of prosciutto and parmesan shavings? Put that tiny dish on a tiny table, next to tiny glasses and a miniature menu in one of the narrowest establishments in the city, et voilà you have an indulgent Parisian meal. Food divinity, of course. No reservations accepted. Be prepared to wait. There’s always a steady stream of customers.

It’s easy to fall in love with Buvette, as this charming gastrotheque delivers a delightful blend of elegance and comfort, Parisian allure and the coziness of home. It’s both Old World, and neighborhood go-to spot, perfect for any time of day. But there’s nothing like mornings in the West Village, and the breakfast and brunch menu at Buvette delivers. Beautiful breads and pastries are complimented by excellent La Colombe coffee, and delicious tartines, eggs, crepes, and croques are almost transportive. Settle into this sun lit space and enjoy a plate of steamed eggs with prosciutto or the Cr’q Madame. Buvette makes for beautiful mornings.

Brunch menu could have more options but the quality is great. The waffle is a bit on the soft side but the rest is great.

Eating at this West Village restaurant feels like being in Paris, which makes sense as it has a sister restaurant of the same name in the City of Lights. Buvette serves these amazing egg dishes here that are cooked with the steamer of an espresso machine. That paired with some stellar charcuterie makes for a perfect meal.
