Considered as one of New York’s bakeries and brunch options, High Street on Hudson deserves a visit. Occupying the corner on Hudson street amidst high green trees, the bakery and restaurant ooze with positive vibes, a warm and industrial feel of wood and metal, black as the main color and one single red painting to add freshness to the place.
Start with a coffee then browse the menu: pastries, egg sandwiches, classics and sides. It feels good to be here... how great it is to walk into places where you feel good without even noticing it. The light coming from all sides, sunny spells caressing the tables, young waiters walking around in their black t-shirts, an open kitchen cooking calmly without too much noise; I just felt good.
Four thick freshly baked French bread with their thick envelope topped when a lemony guacamole and boiled eggs slightly cooked keeping their heart flowing. It’s tasty and refreshing. His toasted Tartine is an interesting sandwich to start your day; it has kale integrates to it, moist avocado, an interesting zesty touch, and very good bread.
Bodega is the best seller, black pepper flaky biscuit with a mashed sausage, scrambled farm eggs prepared in a thin sheet and aged cheddar. A top stellar but not my favorite! Too peppery, too spicy and dry for a morning treat.
They say you can’t come here without trying their pastries! Great pastries, a French touch, flaky and adequately sweet, covered with almonds or stuffed with pastry cream... the croissant is beautifully crafted. The cake looks dry but isn’t; Moist and enjoyable but would have been a hundred times better with a frosting or marmalade.
I liked it here... one of her best ten experiences, I’m not sure but it’s worth visiting.
