Clinton Street Baking Co. – Manhattan

Feb 2014

The meals at this Lower East Side brunch spot, just south of Houston, have people regularly lining up around the block on weekend mornings. For good reason too, it must be said. Clinton Street Baking Co. & Restaurant has hands down, the best pancakes in all of New York City!


Served with a pot of warm maple butter, which is outrageously good and a choice of wild Maine blueberries, banana and walnut or chocolate chunks, Clinton Street’s pancakes are fluffy and the perfect balance of sweet and savoury.

Don’t believe me? Try them for yourself.

There are a whole heap of other brunch options, which are equally as delicious and include brioche french toast and eggs benedict, as well as Southern dishes like buttermilk biscuit sandwiches.


If you’re planning to visit Clinton Street Bakery Co. on the weekend, then prepare yourself for an inevitable wait, which at times can be close to two hours. Luckily, you won’t have to wait out on the street until your table is ready as the host will take down your name and number, and text/call when your table is ready.

Although the wait can be lengthy, it’s well worth it I assure you.

To beat the crowd and if your time allows I suggest popping in during the week. Alternatively, avoid the crazy brunch lines by ordering a stack of blueberry pancakes for dinner. Who said you can’t have pancakes for dinner?
