Jody Williams does simple, homey food right and Buvette Gastrothèque is proof. The tiny no-reservations bistro has quickly become a beloved spot for locals to catch up over coffee and pastries and bump elbows with old friends. Though it's open throughout the day, "from sunlight to candlelight," Buvette truly comes to life during brunch, when the communal tables and bar are filled. The breakfast spread offers everything you might want—nutella crepes, and the fluffiest of steamed eggs—and some fun surprises like a sweet waffle and egg sandwich and the city's only vegetarian version of the French classic croque monsieur—all served on charmingly worn silver trays. Show up early to beat the lines, because there will be lines.
