I appreciate a great brunch, especially on a cold winter morning. Finding solitude in a warm cozy restaurant with the smell of delicious bacon and eggs floating through the air makes me very happy. I follow a handful of New York bloggers and they’re always at the Mediterranean brunch spot Jack’s Wife Freda. There are two locations in the city but my boyfriend and I went to the West Villiage location. Seating is first come first serve so arriving early is your best bet. The place is very small but I overlooked that small flaw because I was so excited for the food. Also I feel like being in the city space is so limited, many of the brunch places are tiny.
I ordered the Mediterranean breakfast and Nick had the Madame Freda. My order consisted of 2 eggs any style, avocado, chopped salad, labne, and pita bread. Nicks order was so good! I was super jealous I didn’t order this for myself. The Madame Freda is a pressed sandwich with duck prosciutto, cheddar béchamel, gruyere & a sunny side up egg. We also ordered a side of duck bacon and some coffee. Overall I give this place 5 stars! Great atmosphere and food.
