    American Breakfast, Continental Breakfast

Clinton St Baking Company is a classic American restaurant with bakery located on NYC’s Lower East Side. Since 2001, we’ve maintained our mom & pop roots by using the highest quality ingredients from local purveyors we know and trust who stand behind the integrity of their products like sustainable coffee, all natural milk, cage free poultry & eggs, premium ice cream, and heritage farm-raised pork. Our eclectic menu takes inspiration from the American South, coastal New England, Jewish New York, and the Spanish cooks who bring to our kitchen their rich culinary traditions from Mexico and the Southwest.

Nearly everything we serve, from raspberry jam and buttermilk biscuits, to corn tortillas and habanero hot sauce, is made on premises, using classic and traditional techniques. Our breakfast and brunch earn the most acclaim, but dinner is a great time to visit, when lights are low, crowds are calm and the neighborhood regulars claim their well-earned place. And yes—pancakes are served all day and all night!

    We went to Clinton St for brunch on a recommendation! On a weekday also they are busy so make your way down there a bit handy to avoid the peak brunch hour ! Luckily we only had to wait 10 - 15 min to be seated! We ordered the fried chicken waffle, green salad and sausages ! The flavour in the waffle was really good , would have liked some crunch on the fried chicken , overall the dish worked with the warm maple butter served on the side! The green salad added a good freshness! The flavour and texture of the sausages was hugely disappointing! We tried their pancakes at a different location - time out market (Dumbo, Brooklyn) and hands down these were the best blueberry pancakes we’ve ever had! They are popular for their pancakes and they live up to that expectation! So fresh, soft melt in the mouth , perfect with the blueberry sauce and warm maple butter !! Every bite sings in your mouth ! Definitely recommend! Overall a good place for brunch with an American diner vibe !

    This restaurant deserves its rank for having the best pancakes in New York. They are absolutely delicious! I’ve tried the blueberry and chocolate chip so far but I have no doubt that the banana walnut is delicious too. Everyone must try the grits. OMG they are so good! I like the restaurant so much that last year I celebrated my birthday over there with all my closest friends. Everyone said very nice things about the food. Two of my friends had the fried chicken and waffles. They liked it very much. My other friends had rave reviews for the shrimp and grits. Everyone must also try the biscuits and raspberry jam. They are very good! We all ate them up. This is truly a great restaurant. I highly recommend everyone to try the pancakes.

    There was about a 45 minute wait on a weekday for brunch. Put your name down and they will text you when your table is ready. This place is not too big, but the hostesses and servers seem to keep it moving efficiently. Food took another 45-60 minutes to come out. Everything was delicious and presented well. $12 Mimosas were tasty. Prices per plate are between $18-$25.

    Heard of this gem via YouTube. Is it the best?; but, I can honestly say that it did not disappoint! For $20 you get 3 fluffy, moist, sweet large pancakes, a topping, and dipping sauce. They do close mid day and reopen at 5pm w/ a different menu. The options are plenty! I definitely would recommend it as a must try if you are in the area!
