A warm weekend (finally!) means finding any excuse to head out earlier than usual. So on Sunday, I met up with a friend for brunch (more like breakfast since it was 10:30am) at Cornelia Street Café. It’s one of those places I’ve walked by every once in a while in the West Village but never remember having seen it. The location was convenient for a meetup and a good starting point for a day-long walk around the city just to enjoy the weather.
The $20 prix fixe was a good deal, with a build-your-own meal from selections of bread, main courses, and two drinks. I opted for the Farmer’s Breakfast (with delicious crumbly bacon hidden beneath the eggs) while my friend ordered the Huevos Rancheros. The food was good and filling, but did not leave me feeling overstuffed. It was the perfect amount of food and a great way to start the day.
