Roxie's Favorite Heathy Brunch in NYC
April 3, 2016
This small spot on Orchard and Canal has clean, simple, healthful food that's always delicious and nutritious — my experience there is always A+. The modern space is flooded with plenty of daylight, so it's perfect for taking a snapshot of the colorful food such as the Mango Pitaya Bowl or their perfectly portioned breakfast egg tacos.
I’ve been going to Pi every week for about a year now. The sour cherry baklava Greek yogurt is EVERYTHING! It’s the best mix of juicy cherries and homemade baklava, sometimes walnut or pistachio, and creamy full-fat yogurt. They import almost all of their ingredients from Greece, so the quality and taste are top-notch.
It was my routine to pick up a Greek yogurt and a Mykonos pie (a tiny tart with feta cheese and a cracked egg on top) after my 6:00 AM classes in SOHO last spring. If I’m sitting down for a bigger breakfast, I love ordering their feta vegetable frittata with a side of tomato cucumber salad. If it’s around the brunching hour, it’s a little hard to resist their handmade cookies that are staring at you from the back wall! That being said, anything and everything that they make is delicious. You can find this spot on Broome and West Broadway in SOHO.
If I could have eggs one way for the rest of my life, it would be in the form of breakfast egg wraps, which Salud does with a Latin flair — great for those of you that love a picante flavor profile. This cozy walk-in is located in SOHO on Thompson and Prince. Almost all breakfast items come in a wrap and are made with organic eggs. I’m a big fan of the Olmec Omelette wrap that has truffled corn inside — I usually like to add chicken bacon to anything I order and add plenty of homemade hot sauce on top!
The gorgeous exterior of the Butcher’s Daughter is alluring. It’s like walking into someone’s patio or garden shack. Located on Kenmare and Mulberry, this eatery specializes in fresh squeezed juices and smoothies — sometimes even in popsicle form on a hot day!
Breakfast here is great for people who have food aversions or plant-based diets. The ingredients are wholesome and the cooking is clean. I took my friend’s suggestion to order the coconut yogurt parfait, creamy coconutty goodness with a goji berry granola that they make in-house.
I love the brunch menu that made its debut a few months ago but honestly, Seamore’s is delicious ANY time of day. It’s only a few blocks away from Butcher’s Daughter on Broome and Mulberry.
When a friend and I went for brunch on a recent Saturday, it was tough for us to make a decision between their acai bowls, bagel stacks, tacos or breakfast entrees like huevos rancheros! Between the two of us, we could only handle two plates and ended up going for the huevos rancheros and avocado toast bagel stack. With the massive amounts of sunlight pouring into the restaurant the food looks amazing every time it arrives at the table. I was the embarrassing one that had to take at least six pictures to put up on Instagram.
This spot is also great for lunch and dinner! Fish tacos and guac are not to be skipped. And if you love sweets like I do, you must try the Morgenstern’s soft serve for dessert. They usually change up the flavors but my most recent favorite has been the coconut chocolate with crunchy coconut topping.
