A beautiful view is nothing if you don’t have good food to go along with it. Waterside Plaza, located on 23rdStreet and FDR has one of the best views of the East River and the Queensboro Bridge that New York City has to offer, and open from Monday to Saturday, Robbins Nest is there to make sure that you don’t see this wonderful sight with an empty stomach.
A café with a wide selection of foods, Robbins Nest offers breakfast foods like crepes, omelets, pastries, Starbucks Coffee and wraps as well as regular meals like sandwiches, soups, salads, and made from scratch pizza.
The pizza, especially the simple regular cheese and tomato one is delicious, as is the Crepe with Nutella. The only downside is that Robbins Nest often runs out of Nutella halfway through the week, so I wouldn’t go there wanting specifically that item, because that can often result in a waste of your time. Also, another downside is that Robbins Nest is closed on Sundays, a day when people are more likely to come and visit Waterside, so if you are planning on coming and getting a bite to eat, do it on another day.
Besides that though, Robbins Nest is a great place to eat. It’s cozy, the workers are friendly, and you’re bound to strike up a conversation with one of the affable residents of Waterside Plaza while you’re there. It’s a great community, and the plaza has a breathtaking view, and the good food only makes it better.
