Sonnyboy is an Australian cafe on the Lower East Side from the people behind another attractive place to drink spritzes and oat milk, Banter. This place is open all day, and we like it for brunch and Happy Hour a bit more than for a full sit-down dinner. Food-wise, you can get everything from gluten-free pancakes to a breakfast sandwich with a thick sausage patty, melted cheddar, and chili jam, and if you come at Happy Hour (4-7pm every day), you can get a burger and fries for $10 and a cocktail for $9.

Beauty & Essex
Beauty & Essex is like a ground level Boom Boom Room with food and slightly poorer people. But you want to know the worst part about it all? The food is actually pretty good.
If you want a relatively quiet drink and some oysters on the Lower East Side, Black Crescent is there for you.
