Where to Go for an Australian Brekkie in NYC
When it comes to breakfast, Australians know how to do it right. Referred to as “brekkie,” this satisfying morning meal from the Land Down Under is made from simple, yet quality ingredients. And since this is New York City, it’s no surprise that Australian cafés have been popping up around town and New Yorkers can indulge in this delicious breakfast culture. If you’re looking for the perfect start to the day, here’s where to go for a proper Australian brekkie in NYC.
Bluestone Lane, 2 E 90th St (and various locations in NYC)
Even if you’re more of a night owl than an early bird, you’ll find breakfast available all day at Bluestone Lane. This mini-chain is known for its classic Australian dish, avocado toast. And if you prefer something sweet, try the warm coconut quinoa and oat porridge or the warm banana bread.
Burke & Wills, 226 W 79th St
Burke & Wills is the perfect place to enjoy Aussie food in a swanky setting. This bistro serves up scrumptious brunch items like the wild mushroom omelet with gruyere, farro bowl with broccolini, roasted beets and chickpeas, and egg and halloumi cheese topped with harissa aioli on brioche. Yum.
Little Collins, 667 Lexington Ave
Little Collins wins when it comes to naming its food. Grab a quick Australian brekkie and choose from dishes like The Convict (toast with vegemite), The Big Dill (toasted sandwich with cured salmon, eggs, dill, mascarpone, and chives), and The Muze (cinnamon yogurt with muesli, berries, and homemade jam).
Two Hands, 164 Mott St
When in or near Nolita (North of Little Italy), stop by Two Hands for healthy, yet filling morning treats like the acai bowl with almond milk and gluten-free granola, or the market plate with two eggs, avocado, spinach, roasted veggies, and pickled beets. Two hands also has an outpost in Tribeca.
Coco & Cru, 643 Broadway
Stepping away from the typical NYC rush and enjoying a relaxing breakfast sounds sublime. Plus, few Australian cafés are as charming as Coco & Cru. Using simple ingredients of the utmost quality, this eatery creates various toasts, egg dishes, healthy bowls like the Vegetarian Breakfast, and a fruit bruschetta with crème fraiche, honey, strawberries, and pistachios. Eat here, and brekkie is sure to become your favorite meal of the day.
