Need New Brunch Place for Sunday

Jdloverulz | Jul 10, 2003 11:29 AM

Since I've moved to Manhattan, I've learned just how important brunch on Sunday can be. Nothing beats waking up at 10, reading the paper, and then venturing out for a great omlette and cup of coffee around noon. I have my favorite places - Grey Dog, EJ's on Amsterdam, and 7A - and have wandered throughout the streets in my neighborhood south of 23rd street looking for a great place with atmosphere, bloody mary's, and good prices -- Jane and Five Points come to mind.
However, I'm looking for a new brunch place for this Sunday. Definitely closer to downtown and with some outdoor seating, basic good food (nothing French or too heavy), and affordable (read: nothing like Norma's).
I'd like to be able to walk in without a reservation, get some quality pancakes or a great omlette, and have a cup of decent coffee or latte with my meal. I don't care if my fellow patrons are residents or tourists, as long as they don't make my wait for a table excruciating long.
So any suggestions that follow the above criteria and are below 23rd street?
