The Clinton Street Baking Company & Restaurant

– A New York tip from Melissa –


I love pancakes, so during my trip to New York, I wanted to find THE BEST pancakes in town.
Obviously I could not taste all of them, only those from Big Daddy’s and the Clinton Street Baking Company.
My number one pancakes are those of the Clinton Street Baking Company 😀

What kind of food they serve?

The food is classic for lunch or dinner.
There are burgers in the menu, but the restaurant is most famous for its brunch and pancakes.


What are the main dishes of the Clinton Street Baking Company?

We went twice to this restaurant for breakfast.
They have salty and sweet dishes: pancakes, omelets, eggs, french toasts…
The first time, we chose both type of flavors.


We ate a scone with scrambled eggs with cheddar, tomato sauce, bacon and mashed potatoes.


The pancakes are delicious, served with butter and maple syrup.
The second time we went to the Clinton Street Baking Company was because I wanted to eat again those pancakes 😀


We ordered the chocolate chip pancake … yummmyy! They are really good 😉


My boyfriend wanted to have a light breakfast and ordered the House Granola, a preparation of yogurt, fresh fruit and cereals. We liked his combination a lot.


How is the restaurant, the atmosphere?

It is a nice little restaurant that smells so good that it makes you feel even hungrier.


Who goes to Clinton Street Baking Company & Restaurant? How is the service?

There are as many New Yorkers as tourists. It’s not a popular place for tourists.
There are always people waiting for a table, even if the employees do their best to serve customers quickly.
But don’t worry, you can take your time to eat.


Why do I recommend this place?

Because of their pancakes!
You cannot go to this restaurant without tasting them.
I recommend having one order of pancakes for two, because they are very large and cost $15.
You can check out their menu online:


More information

The restaurant is located near Kat’s Delicatessen (the restaurant from the movie “When Harry Met Sally” with Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan, 1989) on the Lower East Side area.

Address: 4 Clinton Street (between East Houston & Stanton.), New York, NY 10002


I have another tip, you may go during the week right when it opens, at that time it’s usually less crowded.
Below there is a photo of Big Daddy’s pancakes (read this NYCTT post). In my opinion they are not as good as the ones at the Clinton Street Baking Company & Restaurant 😉



My fist trip to New York was in 2007 when I was working for an airline company. I was born in the US, I lived in Mexico, in Europe in between Belgium, Spain and France… Well, let’s say I know about travelling! I bring my experience of NYC to the blog, to provide the best travel tips you could imagine!
