Craving classic, aesthetically-pleasing brunch? Look no further than Union Fare — beautiful, spacious, and right in Union Square. Located on 17th Street, its close proximity to NYU and large interior (the restaurant runs across an entire street block!) make it incredibly convenient and accessible, as well as a perfect spot to meet friends on a Sunday morning. Union Fare doubles as both a bakery and a restaurant, making it an ideal place for a light snack or a full meal. Their bakery offers a variety of creative and Instagrammable pastries, including Funfetti and Fruity Pebbles croissants. The brunch menu caters to every craving, serving everything from classic pancakes and waffles to their unique “smashes for the table”, in which you can choose three types of toast from its wide selection. My personal favorite dish is the breakfast mac n’ cheese, which is the restaurant's unique take on mac n’ cheese, loaded with bacon, sausage, mushroom, and eggs. Another recommendation is the brunch bowl, a Spanish-style option with whole grains, grilled chicken, and guacamole. Those who are looking for healthier options can try the market tagine, made with egg whites, quinoa, and kale salad. Over 21? Complimentary mimosas are served before 10:30! Finally, if brunch isn’t quite your thing, they also offer an extensive dinner menu, with roasts, salads, pizza, and even poke. Happy brunching!
