I love Clinton Street Bakery, Ninth Street Market and Prune, but I'm done waiting in line for brunch (except for rare occassions). I'm always on the lookout for a very good brunch spot in the East Village, Lower East Side or Noho/Nolita/Soho that I know I can always walk in to.
barmarche on Spring and Elizabeth is the best I've found (good omelettes, good frites). I'm sure others disagree. What's the best brunch spot in this area with no lines?
