Living in NYC for a whole month has given me lots of time to try out different bakeries, restaurants, cafes, you name it.  Here I’ve put together a food guide of some of my favorite places you should grab a bite at while visiting the city.



Located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Leo is known for its naturally fermented breads and pizza. In the mornings I get the most amazing bagels ever with a cup of their affordable coffee! If you don’t have time to stop for breakfast, no worries.  At night I would order their delicious pizza. It’s my favorite in NY and on top of that, their wine menu is superb!


A great spot to grab brunch is Gertie, also located in Williamsburg! The coffee is spot on and they have a build your own Salmon bagel that tastes incredible (if you can’t tell I’ve really been digging bagels on this trip)! Highly recommend the pastries and bagels, but they also have various sandwiches, salads, bowls, plus a different menu for dinner.

The Butcher’s Daughter

Meet up with some friends for brunch at The Butcher’s Daughter! This plant-based restaurant offers vegan and gluten-free options so your whole group is bound to find something on the menu that appeals to them.  I ordered the most delicious pancakes ever along with some awesome coffee. I went to the Williamsburg location, but there are other locations around NY so definitely search up which one is closest to you before making reservations.


Jackson Hole

Looking for the ultimate burgers in all of NYC? Look no further than Jackson Hole Burgers! This family-owned restaurant is incredible for dinner and dates with friends. They have great beer choices too! I visited the Upper East Side location, but there are more locations in New York & New Jersey.


Dine at Dudley’s if you’re looking for an all-day cafe with an Australian twist. This restaurant located on the Lower East Side serves good food with an overall great ambiance. On the menu, you’ll find different options such as the Salt + Pepper Calamari, Crab Linguine, Fried Chicken Croissant Sandwich and so much more plus they have awesome cocktails!


Martha’s Country Bakery

Martha’s Country Bakery is truly incredible in everything that they make. They have a wide selection of delicious baked goods to choose from. My favorites were their Tiramisu and Flan!
