Breakfast by Salt’s Cure
The routine at this Los Angeles-born breakfast spot is simple: hop in line, order at the counter, find a seat, and then marvel at how amazing the signature Oatmeal Griddle Cakes are (sans syrup, and don’t even ask). After making their NYC debut with a West Village flagship, the Carroll Gardens location marks Breakfast by Salt’s Cure’s second Big Apple branch. Head there between 8 am–2 pm from Wednesdays to Sundays for griddle pancakes that are sweet, thin, and crispy edged and available in options like The OG, Banana Nut, Chocolate Chip, and more. From sandwiches and the Cheeseburger to combination Plates or their version of bacon (aka the Picnic Ham), the entirety of the concise menu is also excellent.
