You and your friends put your go-to “bottomless brunch” spot to the test last month, and now you need to find somewhere a little more low key to spend your Sunday. Babs is a little cafe in Midtown that you might walk past without noticing, but that’s part of the charm and what makes it feel like you discovered something secret. They serve a mix of brunch favorites with Middle Eastern twists, like an Israeli omelette with smoked salmon, and you can get some work done in the small garden outside if you’re feeling motivated afterwards.
