    Ok food but nothing special!

    I visited this place a couple of times this month. The first time with my parents and the second time with 3 friends. I sampled the food trying to catch that special flavor that could justify the hype ... but we all agreed that the food is ok. he same you can get almost everywhere that serve similar menues... Nothing was outstanding...The service was rushed and unfriendly.

    awesome on a weekday!

    i have gone to csbc on weekends before and endured the superlong wait, and it's been definitely good enough to return and wait again. but then i decided to go on a weekday that i had off from work, and was shocked to find out how great their lunch is! many of the same items i have come to love from the brunch menu (huevos rancheros) and even some new things that i hadn't seen on the before! and guess what- NO WAIT! service was wonderful and the food was absolutely on par. yum!

    Longest wait for brunch ever!

    My friend and I wanted to see what all the hype was about, so we decided to check out Clinton St. Baking Company for brunch on a random Saturday. We had to wait three hours for a table. I'm not even exaggerating! There were people packed into the little waiting area and even more spilling out into the street. I'm surprised fights weren't started. The food was fantastic and the drinks great, but I would never, ever go back again.

    Best Brunch in a Long Time!

    Yes, the wait is long. But if it's a nice day and you have a good friend to wait with, it's worth it! The banana walnut pancakes were easily the best pancakes I've ever had. The special egg scramble had morel mushrooms, fava beans, and other straight-from-the-green-market veggies, and a delicious goat cheese. Everything was amazing, and the servers were excellent. Worth the wait!! I'll just get there earlier next time :)

    Great deal on Burger...

    You can get a burger and brew for $10 here before 8pm. The other food is good too, but that is the best bang for your buck. I've heard the breakfast here is top-notch, but can't understand waiting outside for eggs and pancakes. I finally went when I took a day off work and didn't see what all the hype was about, it's eggs and pancakes people. Yes it's good, but to stand outside in inclimate weather, no thanks.

    Too busy

    if the wait wasn't so long (at least one hour) and it wasn't so packed, maybe we would have a better impression. While the food and service were good, it wasn't worth the wait. Early on a weekend morning, who needs to put up with crowded conditions. There are lots of better finds for brunch in NYC especially downtown on the smaller quaint side streets. Seems like a case of too much good press "ten best places for NYC brunch" creating a lack of atmosphere and ease.

    Good but pricey

    We arrived at 9.30am for the 10am opening and were the first in line. Felt a bit foolish and somewhat skeptical about previous warnings about long lines, but that soon vanished when suddenly crowds descended and the restaurant filled up even before seating. Atmosphere is nice and cosy. Not pretentious like many Manhattan places can be. Clean bathrooms, always good. We were a party of six and tried a good number of their offerings. Pancakes were fluffy and nice. My husband passed on the maple butter and asked for good old regular maple syrup. I had the brioche French toast and thought it was really quite good. The goat cheese and herb muffin with tomatoe jam sounded intriguing but was actually heavy and somewhat bland for such a lovely name. Chocolate chunk scones were delightful, with good quality bittersweet chunks. Waiting is not restricted to the lines outside. Our orders took more than 20 minutes to arrive. The wait stuff kept coming to ask if they could clear things, not so subtly trying to hurry us along. While we were taking a few minutes to sort out the check, they asked if we could go already because there was line outside. Maybe I would do the same if I was a wait stuff raking in tips at the bakery but it didn't feel so nice as a customer, especially not at a relaxing Sunday brunch. Overall, food was generally of good quality but certainly over priced for what it was. I'm glad I went but won't be in a hurry to return.
