Oddfellows is part French Bistro, part espresso bar, and part old-school grocery store, and they’re not shy with the exposed brick and overall hip vibes. Oddfellows is all about versatility: you can stop in for a latte and some of the best scrambled eggs (soft with cheese and herbs) in the city, or pop in for a happy hour on the patio with cocktails and snacks, or go for a casual but cool dinner with a date. Oddfellow’s doesn’t take reservations, so it’s generally wise to have a backup plan when you get there - but it tends to be more crowded for weekend brunch than for dinner.
