Neighborhood crowds clamoring for coffee and freshly squeezed juice line up for brunch at this TriBeCa mainstay, but Bubby's is good for lunch and dinner, too, if you're in the mood for comfort food like mac 'n cheese or fried chicken. The dining room is homey and comfortable, with big windows; in summer, patrons sit at tables outside with their dogs. Brunch options include just about everything, including homemade granola, sour-cream pancakes with bananas and strawberries,
and huevos rancheros with guacamole and grits.

I have never seen such a great pie list. We only had dessert there, but if the food is as good as the homemade pies...it's a hit! You can tell the crust is homemade with lots of crisco! Try it, you'll like it!

I was taken to Bubby's by some Village-dwelling friends who insisted it was "THE" place for brunch. Well, we waited nearly an hour on the street AFTER our reservation time. When we were finally seated, it was crammed into a tiny space where we were constantly bumped by the wait staff. It took us at least 5 asks and over 30 minutes to get water for the table. The food was fine, but $5 but an orange juice is just ridiculous. The waitress brought
the wrong meals to several of our party. At one point, she tried to take a dish that had already been served (and partially eaten) from one of us, and deliver it to another! There are a lot of cheaper, friendlier, quicker places (it took us 2 hours to get out of there) to get a couple of eggs!
