These 6 Brunch Spots Have Epic Hudson River Views
We’ll take pancakes with a side of the Palisades, thanks.
3 Westerly Rd, Ossining; 914.762.1333
At sunset, the view from this stylish waterfront restaurant can’t be beat, whether you’re sitting in the nautically inspired interior or on the spacious 100-seat terrace. But on sunny Saturdays and Sundays, the view is also divine, as is the brunch menu, which includes stiff drinks, seasonal frittatas, and banana-Nutella pancakes.

71 Water Grant St, Yonkers; 914.965.1111
Chef Peter Kelly’s venerated New American restaurant on the Yonkers Pier manages to be both a splurge and a steal at brunch. The $48 price tag includes three luxurious courses (poached eggs with crabmeat hollandaise, anyone?), plus unlimited Champagne cocktails that feel like they’re always being topped off; passed bites, including plump lamb chops and Kelly’s signature coconut shrimp; and clear-day views that stretch all the way to Manhattan.
5 John Walsh Blvd, Peekskill; 914.788.4555
Sophisticated beer-drinking brunchers have found their new hang on the second floor of Peekskill’s Factoria complex. Pair original craft brews from River Outpost downstairs with creative brunch dishes like beet-cured gravlax Benedict or buttermilk pancakes with red currant compote. Big picture windows showcase sweeping views of the Hudson River and Palisades, meaning you’ll probably want to get another round (or two) and linger.
4 W Main St, Irvington; 914.478.2200
It’s not your typical bacon-and-eggs joint, which is what we love so much about Chef Navjot Arora’s Thai/Malay restaurant, where the dim-sum-style weekend brunch, includes an international selection of dumplings (shrimp shumai, pork momos, veggie pot stickers). The location in a parking lot doesn’t seem particularly scenic at first glance, but by the time you’re on the second-floor patio with a cold drink and a view of the river, you’ll hardly even notice.

11 River St, Sleepy Hollow; 914.631.8380
The second Westchester restaurant from Chef Michael Kaplan puts Hudson River views front-and-center, whether you’re sitting on the tight outside patio abutting the RiverWalk or sidling up to the counter at the picture windows inside. Either way, order some smoked salmon Benedict, house-smoked bacon, and lobster hash.
1 River St, Hastings-on-Hudson; 914.478.2800
Take your pick of lush outdoor spaces at this riverfront stalwart. We’re partial to the 2,000 sq. ft. landscaped garden, where you can relax under an orange umbrella with a bacon-egg-and-cheese pizza, seafood tower, or plate of whole-wheat-mascarpone waffles.
