Even in the dead of winter, Clinton Street Baking Company has a line out the door. The small joint is hugely popular among locals and the occasional celebrity.
Located in Manhattan's Lower East Side, most people come here for their legendary pancakes and other breakfast dishes. February is 'Pancake Month' in which a new pancake flavor is featured each day.
Be prepared for a line no matter how early you arrive. Even at 9am on a Saturday people are already waiting to put their name on the list. If breakfast is not really your thing, stop by Monday-Thursday from 6-8 for their $15 beer and burger special.
