NYC Brunch: Horchata at West 4th

“Let’s grab brunch in the city!” Sounds innocuous, but trekking into the depths of Manhattan for a mimosa is not always comfy. But now that the 33rd Street PATH is running on weekends {HALLELUJAH!}, there’s a brunch spot you must check out at West 4th — Horchata.

It’s a rather soul-warming experience at HORCHATA at West 4th for LEGIT Mexican fare.

The atmosphere is colorful & warming. Here, you can indulge in the $35 “Chill Out” Boozy Brunch which consists of all-you-can-drink sangria/mimosas/bloodies + food. However! We opted for a la carte…to taste the restaurant’s namesake, the horchata.


This authentic horchata is made from rice & almond milk + Mexican cinnamon. It’s cold & refreshing, lightly spiced & warming. You can even get it with a shot of rum or espresso if you like. Perfect for winter. 😉

The guac at Horchata is fresh & super chunky (yayyy), but beware gluten-free friends! The chips are authentic, hearty, and flour-based. Of course, we then devoured some Huevos Divorciados and the Quesadillas Hongos while sipping on these big glasses of horchata & margaritas. Many of the mains come with chilaquiles, also made from the thick chips, which we love.

To note: the quesadillas are something special…stuffed with fresh ingredients like roasted cremini mushrooms, huitlacoche, epazote (not sure how to pronounce), oaxaca cheese (YAS), and tomatillo-avocado salsa verde. Check the menu for 4 different quesadilla options!

Finally, the Tres Leches De Crepes is non-negotiable. We’ve never had anything quite like it. It’s a tower of fluffy crepes with a vanilla pour-it-yourself sauce that’s way too much fun. YOLO, right?



Where is your favorite brunch off the PATH now that 33rd is back up and running on weekends?
