Twelve dates of Christmas: On our third date of Christmas...

... we enjoyed a delicious brunch at Freeman's, in the Lower East Side. 
I discovered Freeman's a few months ago, and instantly fell in love with it. The restaurant is tucked away on Freeman's Alley, a quant little street nestled in the Lower East Side. As soon as you turn the alley corner, you feel like you have been transported into another world. White lights are strung across the buildings, shrubs line the old brick walls, and the warmth of the restaurant is felt before you even step foot inside. 
The restaurant itself is a series of intimate rooms spread across two levels. Worn wooden floors, antique books and couches, and farm tables create a space similar to an old cabin tucked away in the woods. While you are dining, you would never know you were smack dab in the middle of New York City! And the food is delicious. Brian and I loved our scramble, apple cinnamon pancakes, and endless cups of coffee. 
When Brian and I first met, we went out for brunch almost every Sunday. We fell in love over the course of those meals, and for that reason among many our brunches will always be very special to me. 


  1. Ahhh, love this!

    And love that brunches are so meaningful to you guys because it was a tradition you started early in your relationship, and proceeded to fall in love over the brunches.

    And OMG but does that look scrumptious...! I wanna!

  2. I want to go to here.. and luckily I totally can! What a total find in the city. Also, I love that you started going to brunch early on in your relationship. The fellow that I fancy with my whole darn heart always wants to go get breakfast. It's like a broken record "let's get breakfast, let's get breakfast" and I always say that it's a cop out date.. but now.. now I think maybe I'll just say yes ;) Thanks for sharing!

  3. This place looks like such a little gem! I could spend hours tucked away with a cup of cocoa and a good book in there! Love your 12 dates of Christmas idea - I remember following along last year :)


  4. How lovely is this place, tucked away in a secret-esq corner - would love to have more brunch spots with such an intimate feel like this in my hometown Toronto!
