I can see how a family or group of families with young kids would like a brunch here, since kids eat free I believe. That is the extent of any "value", though. I went here on a Sunday for brunch and waited approximately 40 minutes for a table at 10:30 am. On the low-end of waiting for a really good sunday brunch in manhattan. This, however, was not a good brunch in any way, shape or manner. The waitress, while polite, was absent the entire meal except for ordering. The food was not good. My $18 burger or whatever it came out to after adding a couple toppings was burnt on the outside and cold on the inside. My screwdriver was $14-15. For one screwdriver. Are you kidding me? Freaking ridiculous. Even if you just want to get a plain eggs and toast/sausage breakfast it's well over $10. I seriously don't understand their prices. If you have a bunch of rugrats in tow, however, maybe their prices make more sense. The atmosphere was comfortable. The only good thing I'll say.

I've lived in Tribeca for almost as long as it's had it's trendy name and remember the early days of Bubby's fondly enough that I've continued eating there despite the rising prices. However, last weekend I drew the line when a bagel with lox, an orange juice and a cup of soup set me back over $20 with tip. Don't fall for the cute decor and traditional food.

As much as I love going to Bubby's the service absolutely kills it. Not only will the waitstaff ignore you but additionally they are no where to be found. 2x in a row I went there and had poor service and wasn't even offered biscuits and water. It really kills it because i think this place is great. The last time I went the service was so poor that we left a note on the back of the check. Btw I've waited tables before so I normally tip very well.

These people who are complaining are complaining about the dessert. The dessert is ok but despite "pie co." being in the name, Bubby's is known for their breakfast. Best pancakes in the city! Best breakfast in the city.

I've been there two times over the past year and both times it was better than average. Last night I went with my family which includes an infant and a three year old. Although it wasn't packed with kids it was most certainly 'kid friendly'. Crayons, high chairs and very reasonably priced kid's menu. I"m betting this place gets loads more kids during the week and on weekends not during the summer. As for my meal, yellowfin tuna, it was prepared perfectly(rare) and was of very high quality. Overall it was an enjoyable dining experience and I will definitely go back again.

went for sunday brunch. pancakes were delicious. not cheap but it's good and a lot of food. not much to look at inside. kind of crowded which makes it almost not worth it. if you go, sit outside and avoid the inside crowd. juice is overpriced here.

Stroller Central - be prepared for slow service, cold meals and a billion babies. The pies are ok, but nothing great. However, the place is always packed, so maybe I'm down right wrong on this one.
