There are plenty of places to get a quick bite in the West Village, but a lot of them involve eating pizza standing up or scooping hummus with whole wheat pita. That’s not the case at Berber Street Food, a counter-service spot serving mostly pan-African food, like sirloin skewers, shawarma-filled sandwiches, and a large plate with slow roasted lamb. Our favorite things are a couple of the street-food-influenced small plates - the vegetable curry empanadas and the black-eyed pea fritters, which taste like a mix between falafel and hush puppies. This lunch and dinner spot has about 10 seats, but keep it in mind for takeout as well.

Sometimes you don’t want brunch. Sometimes you want breakfast at noon. There’s a difference. La Bonbonniere is a Village safe haven from all things hollandaise, and one of the best true breakfast joints in town.
Always packed Morandi in the West Village is a popular spot serving Italian favorites. The porterhouse for two is amazing.
Extra Virgin in the West Village is an excellent date spot and is as consistent as they come.

Radiance Tea House
Radiance Tea House is a great little place to get some grub, drink a pot of tea, and maybe peruse a text about Buddhism. We find ourselves in here from time to time to do exactly that – except for the Buddhism part.

Miss Lily’s 7A Cafe
Miss Lily’s is basically the Jamaican Cracker Barrel, the way they’re expanding. That’s a good thing. We love Cracker Barrel.
A falafel sandwich at Taim is the best thing you can get in NYC for less than $10 and also theoretically eat daily without disastrous consequences.
