I have always loved Time Out magazines and when I found out that they made Markets, I knew I had to go. NYC’S Time Out Market is located in Dumbo, Brooklyn at 55 Water Street and had been open since May 2019, but it wasn’t until November 2022 that I went for the first time. Time Out Market also has locations in Lisbon, Miami, New York, Boston, Montreal, Chicago, and Dubai.

We arrived at around 10am on a Thursday and it was spacious, quiet, and relaxed. There were people on laptops taking advantage of their free fast wifi.
Clinton St. Baking Company
There were many different brunch options but we decided on Clinton St. Baking Company and Restaurant. I technically tried their pancakes before at their Tokyo Branch which can be read in my New York Food in Tokyo post, but since this was my first time at this NYC brunch staple actually in New York, I was really excited. The prices at this Time Out Market is actually cheaper than the one original one on Clinton in Manhattan by a few dollars. Plus, at Time Out Market, it is food court style, so there is no obligation to tip which also saves extra dollars.
It took a while for the food to come out (around 20 minutes, but they us a pager to let us know when our food was ready even if we are a little away from the store front. The pancakes themselves were so good and the wild Maine blueberry was the cherry on top. My friend and I agreed that this was the best blueberry we have ever tasted. The pancakes were the perfect thickness, and the ring around the rim gave them a nice crunch. The sauce that came with it was also delicious. I do wish they either gave us more or maple syrup since I’m the type to dowse my pancakes in syrup.
The pancakes inside were filled with blueberries; it was truly the perfect combination and amount and didn’t feel overwhelming.
After the delicious pancakes, we ate the Hibiscus vegan donut from Dough. My friend claims that it was so sweet that she couldn’t eat it, but I actually really enjoyed it.
Overall opinion of NYC’s Time Out Market
I personally feel like brunch would be the best meal eaten here with the low amount of people and iconic brunch spots like Clinton St. Baking Company and Essa-A-Bagel, sometimes having long wait times in their original locations.
By the time it was 11:30am, it was getting very crowded so we decided to leave. I’m not quite sure how busy it gets during dinner and weekends, but I expect it to be very busy with long wait times.
