Breakfast: Oatmeals

Eating Out





The Elvis – oatmeal with honey, peanut butter, banana and bacon. YES PLEASE.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’m a bit obsessed with these little shop in the West Village called Oatmeals.  Oatmeals specialized in, you guessed it – pancakes (haha just kidding).  But not just any oatmeal – super crazy delicious concoctions!  We’re talking savory, sweet, cheese, meats, if you dream it, they’ll make it.  I pass by this place quite often, and when I feel like treating myself I will get a “baby bear” sized oatmeal for breakfast (yes, they follow the bear-sized system of ordering).

Oatmeals features steel-cut oats, aka pinhead oats, aka Irish Oats.  I much prefer this variety as I find it somehow heartier – if you have never tried steel-cut oats before, you are missing out!  You can create your own oatmeal masterpiece or order from their pretty extensive menu of sweets and savories.   I usually just order from the menu because I figure they know what they’re doing.  And they do!  Some of my favorites have been:

Dulce de Leche Cheesecake – graham crackers, whipped ricotta, dulce de leche drizzle, cinnamon, brown sugar,  and whipped cream:


Salted Caramel Apple – cinnamon, brown sugar, cinnamon roasted apples, caramel drizzle,  fleur de sel, and whipped cream:


The Indian Spiced – raisins, sliced almonds, crystallized ginger, cardamom, vanilla and brown sugars, and coconut milk:


Truffl RisOATto – shaved parmesan, truffle oil, sea salt & cracked black pepper:


The Canadian – cinnamon roasted apples, sharp cheddar cheese, bacon, maple syrup, and sea salt:


Fig & Gorgonzola – crumbled gorgonzola, drid figs, and a balsamic vinegar glaze:


When putting together your Oatmeals meal, you can choose between milk- or water-based oatmeal (I go with the milk! Yum).  At around $4 – $4.75 for a baby bear sized cup, I wouldn’t say this is an every day indulgence for me – I wish it were! – but I do treat myself every so often.  If you’re ever in the West Village, give Oatmeals a try!

    I’ve been experimenting with savory oatmeal for a while now, and I LOVE steel-cut oats. Will definitely swing by for some oats!

    I am only recently coming around to oatmeal again (again? the last time i ate it regularly was in elementary school) so I can’t say I’ll go the savory route yet…more of how much brown sugar can I fit into the container to hide the oatmeal taste.

      You can bake sliced apples with cinnamon and sugar; however, for refrigerator oats I just use apple sauce and cinnamon 🙂
