About The Wait

We do not take Reservations during the day (even if you are famous, or related to us by blood). During weekend brunch we can only accommodate parties of 6 or less. 

About the wait:  We add patrons to our wait list with a name and mobile phone number and then notify you via text when your table is ready.  On weekends the wait can be an hour or more but you can grab a pastry & coffee from our bakery and explore the ‘hood.  Please note, we do not sit incomplete parties; once you are notified you’ll have ten minutes to return and check in or your table will be given to the next guest. 

To avoid a wait on weekendsyou can arrive by 8:30 AM to get in line for our first seating at 9 AM. After 10 AM you can get in line with NoWait, a free app that allows you to virtually put your name on the list if you are within a mile of the restaurant.

Get in line from your phone in three easy steps:
Step 1: Download the NoWait App via the app store or go to nowaitapp.com/get-the-app
Step 2: Select Clinton St. Baking Company
Step 3: Arrive on time and check-in with our host   
Check out their site and download the app by clicking the button below.

To avoid a wait in general, visit during the week or at night when the waits are shorter, if at all.

You Can Reserve at Night!

At dinner we are happy to reserve for groups of 6 or more from 6pm to 8:30pm. We serve many of our famous dishes at night, including pancakes and eggs benedict, and our award-winning buttermilk fried chicken & waffles, plus grass fed burgers and hand cut fries. Save room for our old school Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory shakes made with Battenkill Dairy milk. A credit card is required to reserve your spot and will be charged $25 if you cancel with fewer than 24 hours’ notice. 

Take Out is always available during business hours. Call 646-602-6263 to pre-order.
