Dimes Restaurant

Dimes has been on my list of places to eat for quite some time, not just because of its cool and hipster vibe, but also for its healthy (and colorful) menu. We recently ventured downtown (49 Canal Street) to this eclectic, health-concsious hippie dippy, hipster minimalist, holy cow delicious restaurant. I was in pig heaven  — so many healthy choices to choose from!




The decor is simple, modern, and beautiful. The food is delicious and filling (although my poor manly husband had two entrees for breakfast and was still hungry afterwards…) and the vibe is new-agey, fashionista, and hip. WIN WIN WIN for us all.

When having brunch with kids, portable toys are a must!

To read up on the owners of the restaurant, (two extremely attractive and ultra stylish women), go here and here and here. To see reviews of the restaurant go here and here. And definitely add Dimes to your list of must-go-to-places in New York City. I can’t wait to go back for lunch and / or dinner! Have a great weekend!
