Sonnyboy is an Australian cafe on the Lower East Side from the people behind another attractive place to drink spritzes and oat milk, Banter. This place is open all day, and we like it for brunch and Happy Hour a bit more than for a full sit-down dinner. Food-wise, you can get everything from gluten-free pancakes to a breakfast sandwich with a thick sausage patty, melted cheddar, and chili jam, and if you come at Happy Hour (4-7pm every day), you can get a burger and fries for $10 and a cocktail for $9.
