At Juliet, a sophisticated, white-walled cafe in Union Square, you can order a quick cup of coffee from the takeaway counter or sit down for a full breakfast, lunch, or dinner. In the morning, you'll find an a la carte breakfast menu with drip coffee, matcha tea, and turmeric tonic, as well as toasts with sweet and savory spreads and rotating breakfast taco specials. The afternoon and evening bring more elegant and seasonal dishes, and a formal prix fixe option served at the chef’s counter.
The twee Union Square cafe and restaurant has woven equality into its ethos: fair wages for all of its employees and a gratuity-free pay structure. The dining joys begin in the morning with a Saturday/Sunday brunch menu that includes Salmon Scrambled Eggs, Ricotta Toast, Roasted Mushroom Omelettes, and Roman Braised Beef with two sunnyside eggs. But don’t overlook the smaller dishes: an epic meal could be made of the Breakfast Tacos, Caramelized Grapefruit, and Juliet’s spin on the Kir Royale.
