Brunch at Tartine, New York

Eggs Benedict Tartine

Obviously, brunch is one of my favorite weekend activities. At the beginning of August, my friend Danielle and I met another friend for a very late brunch at Tartine, a cute little French café in the West Village. Brunch entrees are $15.50 and come with orange juice. I had the eggs Florentine (poached eggs and Hollandaise sauce over spinach and English muffin) and asked if they could add bacon, since there’s bacon in other dishes on the menu, but they refused. I thought that was quite odd, especially since they didn’t even think about the fact that they could’ve charged me extra and made more money on something that’s cheap. The food itself was ok, nothing special. What makes this place so beloved is the cozy French café atmosphere, and the fact that you can sit outside at cute little tables on the sidewalk, underneath a gorgeous green canopy of trees. It’s residential, and a quiet area of New York. It reminds me more of Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, than the rest of Manhattan; which makes it lovely.
