cheap 'n' charming

I've been to Chat 'n' Chew a couple of times, and it's definitely nice when you find yourself in Union Square at mealtime, you don't have a lot of money, and you're craving some kind of comfort food. I particularly recommend the sweet potato fries - they *are* divine. The service quickly gets spotty when it's busy, though, and beware the a/c in the back - frrreeeezing, even on a hot day.

Low Key Eats

This place gets a lot of business due to the lack of cheap, casual eateries in the Union Square area. It's great for before or after seeing a movie, or for brunch--though it's very busy on the weekends, so be prepared to wait. The waitstaff is terribly unattentive, but they're so nice about it that you end up leaving a decent tip anyway.

Delivers what they promise

This is a great place for brunch. Service is very quick. The atmosphere was jovial and they moved us right through, in a good way. All in all, I'd say it's a great place to spend your Sunday morning. The sweet potato fries are delish and the prices are reasonable. It gets crowded and they don't take reservations.
