So what if the wait at Ninth Street Market can surpass two hours on a Sunday? That just means the food is worth it. Well, that, and the place is small.
This cozy East Village spot has only about a dozen tables to feed the masses who line up early and often stay late. But who can blame them? The name says it all, since offerings are, indeed, market fresh. Brioche French toast is dipped in a batter of vanilla, cinnamon and Greenmarket milk and eggs, then topped with season fruit and real maple syrup. Omelets with wild mushrooms, asparagus or crispy bacon are made with farm fresh eggs and local ingredients. Even the O.J. and grapefruit juice (which come free with brunch) are fresh squeezed.
The staff is laid back but attentive, and their easy attitudes keep the regulars coming back ... even if they have to wait in line just like the rest of us.
