Best Breakfast


Buvette is the French neighborhood café you thought you would have to pack up your things and head for the Seine to find, except that it’s located in the heart of the West Village, which makes it much easier to afford. Chef Jody Williams envisioned this as a place her neighbors would hang out in all day, and that starts with breakfast. Stop in for light and airy steamed eggs scrambled with the wand of an espresso machine, little croissants with dollops of butter and jam, Belgian waffles with berries, or croques. Williams is exacting in her coffee drink specifications — don’t even think about asking for a cappuccino with skim milk — and the latte art is on point, too.
