At brunch, Jackdaw’s $11 cocktails are two-for-one, so you can get a morning buzz on without breaking the bank. Cold brew martinis, boozy “brunch punch” and Bloody Marys with your choice of vodka or tequila make Jackdaw quite the scene on a Saturday at noon. Standard brunch fare like French toast stuffed with bananas and cream cheese, breakfast burritos with bacon or sausage and a fried chicken sandwich with Cajun fries ring in at just $16, so you can get a solid brunch for about 30 bucks.
Cheap brunch? In this economy? While truly cheap eats might be hard to come by these days, NYC still has plenty of restaurants where you can enjoy an amazing breakfast (and 90 minutes of bottomless mimosas, if that’s what your morning calls for) without breaking the bank.
Whether you want a towering stack of blueberry pancakes from an old-school diner, a satisfying sandwich overstuffed with bacon or a spicy Bloody Mary that just might be the cure for last night’s hangover, these spots let you grab brunch (drink included!) for as little as $15.
So this Sunday morning, fire up the group chat and head to a Hong Kong-style diner for slippery eggs and an Instagrammable Ovaltine, order a two-for-one cold brew martini or eat a hot crêpe in a Senegalese cafe—there’s cheap brunch to be found in every borough. Just promise us you’ll leave a good tip, okay?
