You guys. This morning I had the most awe-inspiring, stupendous, drool-worthy plate of pumpkin pancakes. Ever. I can't even begin to describe the feeling I got with each and every bite. If my mouth wasn't full of pumpkin goodness, it was talking about the pumpkin goodness. But seriously, if you guys are ever in the New York City area and you're looking for a brunch worthy of every penny you spend, head over to Cafe Orlin in the East Village. I know I'm definitely dragging my roommates and my boyfriend (when he comes back to the US) here. It has such a relaxed vibe, which is the perfect way to start off your weekend, and it's reasonably priced so you don't leave with a full stomach and empty pockets.
Disclaimer: This may or may not be the best brunch in New York City, as my knowledge of brunches is very limited. But in my world, it tops the list.
