Where to Eat Brunch Near: Penn Station

I find this to be one of the harder questions I get in life:

Where do I eat brunch near Penn Station?

I don’t know exactly why that area is the food sinkhole that it is, but it’s getting better. Check out my other list here for regular lunch/dinner and drinks spots. But for now, let’s talk brunch, because that is a tricky one.

Below is my list of brunch spots near Penn Station, and if you have any other suggestions, PLEASE leave a comment below! Happy to check it out and hope to continue to add to this.

And a friendly reminder that the phone number is a link to the Google search for the restaurant. You’re welcome.

One thing I have to add before I get into the few places I listed below, is that Penn Station itself has had a SIGNIFICANT glowup. I went in there not too long ago and ended up walking through Moynihan Train Hall, which is apparently a new food court/wing with other shops and I literally didn’t even know where I was. I felt insane. I thought I took a train to a much nicer part of the East Coast.

There are a slew of options to eat in there and they’re GOOD. Check it out below. Alidoro sandwiches are great, Sauce Pizzeria, Maman (the cookies!!), Pastrami Queen, even Jacob’s Pickles!! And so many more.

Where to Eat Brunch Near Penn Station

  1. Friedmans – one of my favorite lunch places in that area is also one of my favorite brunch places. If you want healthy, they have it. If you want unhealthy, they have that too. Case in point: sesame salmon salad with OR fried chicken with cheddar waffle. Totally drool worthy menu, no matter what route you choose.
    132 west 31st St, New York, NY 10001
  2. The Ragtrader – I love the decor/vibe in this place. It used to be an old tailor’s shop, so there are vintage pieces everywhere, but of course there are neon signs (an IG staple), and a dark wood bar that pumps out really fun and delicious cocktails. For food, don’t skip the brunch pizza (obviously with an egg on top), the burger, and the deviled eggs.
    70 West 36th St, New York, NY 10018
  3. La Pecora Bianca – I always recommend LPB to friends and followers alike; they make all of their pasta in-house, and I have trouble picking a favorite. The gramigna is most popular, with sausage, broccolini, garlic, and pecorino, but I also love their cacio e pepe, rigatoni with ricotta, and garganelli with mushrooms, pesto and parm. On the sweet side, their lemon ricotta pancakes are to die for.
    1133 Broadway (at 26th), New York, NY 10010
  4. Parker & Quinn – if you’ve been to the Refinery Hotel, you’ve likely walked through Parker & Quinn and just didn’t realize it. It’s a beautiful space – tiled floors, comfy banquettes, and a sizable bar. There’s a Malted Waffle that’s sure to speak to your sweet tooth, and then there’s also steak & eggs, if you’re living that protein life.
    64 West 39th St, New York, NY
  5. Trademark Taste & Grind – I often come here during the week to work and grab a light bite and/or coffee, but I know it’s also got a solid brunch game on the weekends. The burrata and knots with tomato jam to start are awesome, and they have a “Cereal Milk White Russian” with manhattan moonshine, cocoa puffs, almond milk, and coffee liqueur. Ummm yes.
    38 West 36th St, New York NY 10018
  6. Penn 6 – I recommend this spot to anyone in the Penn Station area for literally any meal of the day. It’s always consistent and it’s a pretty big space so you shouldn’t have to worry about waiting. They also make it a STRONG point to let you know there are gluten free options. See menu below for proof. And do NOT skip their blue crab mac n cheese (w gluten-free pasta). One of my faves.
    Menu – Gluten Free
    132 West 31st St New York NY 10001
  7. The Harold – A bi-level American eatery with all the brunch classics like Eggs Benedict, Huevos Rancheros, and Steak & Eggs. For the sweet tooth, there’s a delightful Nutella & Banana Challah French Toast or Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Pancakes.
    1271 Broadway, New York NY 10001
