Danny Meyer’s popular neighborhood cafe Daily Provisions makes its anticipated debut on the Upper West Side this week.

The cruller haven opens on Wednesday at 375 Amsterdam Avenue, on the corner of 78th Street, in a 36-seat space decked out in the cafe’s signature blue. The lunch and dinner menu, served from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., includes sandwiches, rotisserie chicken, soups, salads, and baked goods like a chocolate caramel cookie. Meanwhile, a breakfast menu starting at 6 a.m. serves up gougères, egg sandwiches, crullers, an everything croissant, and toasts, including rye bread spread with ricotta and an English muffin with smoked salmon. It’s the same food served at the downtown hit; later on, the cafe plans on adding new rotating specials.

Then there’s the cafe’s most famed menu item: the cruller. Here, it comes in three different flavors: maple, cinnamon, and salted caramel apple — a new flavor added for uptown. Coffee, tea and a few selections of beer and wine round out the drinks; see the menus in full below.

The UWS spot is Daily Provisions’s second NYC location, and there are plans to open a third in the West Village this fall. The original opened in 2017 near Meyer’s Union Square Cafe on 19th Street in Gramercy, initially pegged as a sister spot to his seasonal flagship restaurant next door. But the crullers — fried dough that’s crispy on the outside and moist and light on the inside, topped with either cinnamon sugar or a sweet glaze — were an instant hit. Now, the cafe has grown into its own.

It joins a stretch of Amsterdam on the UWS that has seen lots of cafes open in recent years, including a second and larger Levain, French bakery Recolte, and Jewish bakery Orwashers. Still, locals have been clamoring for the opening in the space that was last the troubled butcher White Gold.

Daily Provisions opens Wednesday, October 2, with the following hours: 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
