New York City is a treasure, but the suburbs can be just as great. The suburbs are generally quieter and not as crowded. It’s a place where you can get away from the hustle and bustle. If you’re looking for brunch here are five suggestions.

Enjoy Brunch at a Classic Diner

Brunch is served at the Orangetown Classic Diner. They offer food made from scratch including gluten-sensitive options, house baked desserts, grass-fed beef, and more. All ingredients are locally sourced.

For breakfast and brunch, they offer buttermilk pancakes, Belgian waffles, quinoa pancakes, steak and eggs, and more.  Want to try something else? They offer several selections under the benedicts, sandwiches, and omelet categories.

You can show up to eat, order takeout, or have them deliver it. Plus, they offer free delivery within a 3-mile radius. If you stay in a hotel in Orangeburg, New York, you can sleep in and then get brunch easily. Orangeburg is not very big so it’s not difficult to stay at a hotel in that 3-mile radius of the Orangetown Classic Diner.

Satisfy Your Love for Strawberries

Check out the Strawberry Place in Nyack, New York. They serve sliced strawberries on waffles, pancakes, and French toast. Have someone in your party that’s not crazy about strawberries? They also serve burgers, fries, and omelets.

If you’re in the mood to ride your bike they do have bicycle parking. Be sure to bring cash, as they don’t accept credit cards.

Try an Artisan Bakery

Try the Patisserie Florentine in Englewood, New Jersey. Their chef brings French fare to the East Coast. Want to try authentic French food? They offer sandwiches, salads, desserts, petit dejeuner (breakfast), and more. They also have a brunch selection on the menu. Additionally, it won’t break the wallet to eat here.  A couple can easily eat here and spend $30 to $40, or less.

Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Be sure to check out Aunt Mia’s. There are so many gourmet cookie flavors including raspberry chocolate chip, mango, peaches and cream, cinnamon sugar, minty chocolate, and more. Purchase two dozen cookies for $18.

Do you love marshmallows? Have you heard of the Grahamello? It is a graham cracker based cookie, topped with marshmallow, and dipped in chocolate. This is also available at Aunt Mia’s along with cakes, cupcakes, and other tasty treats.

Get Cozy in a Family Diner

Check out Hogan’s Diner. This diner has some history to it. It was first opened by George Hogan Sr. shortly after World War II. Today, this family business continues its tradition of serving great food at great prices in two locations.

It’s located in Orangeburg, New York, and is boasted as the area’s favorite family diner. They offer everything a person would expect from an American diner including daily specials. They’re open at 7 a.m. so you can get an early start.

Whether you’re in the mood for strawberries, something sweet, or something else, you have plenty of choices when you visit the suburbs of New York City.
