Popular transit app Uber figures that many people calling rides on Saturdays and Sundays between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. in NYC are hailing a cab to brunch.

Knowing what we know about New Yorkers and Uber users, they are probably right.

To see which restaurants their users frequent most, they took a look at the data. Here's what they found:

No. 1:

Balthazar, SoHo

No shock here! The beautiful bistro is wealthy hipster central. (Though also a spot flocked to by tourists.)

No. 2:

Cookshop, Chelsea

Pretty spot near the High Line? Yep.

No. 3:

Katz's Deli, Lower East Side

Another iconic spot that's very Instagrammable.

No. 4:

Roberta's, Bushwick

The queen bee of Brooklyn restaurants!

No. 5:

Buvette, West Village

A West Village gem that is quaint and very Parisian. Also grammable.

No. 6: 

The River Cafe, DUMBO

Most people can't afford the River Cafe. Uber users can!

No. 7:

ABC Kitchen, Union Square

This is the sister restaurant to ABC Cocina, where the guacamole with peas recipe originated.

No. 8:

Grimaldi's, DUMBO

Pizza and history, in one place. Also: lines. 

No. 9:

Maison Premiere, Williamsburg

Shockingly the first Williamsburg restaurant to rank, M.P. of course fits. Oysters and absinthe in an old-timey setting?!

No. 10:

By Chloe, West Village

This new spot is highly buzzed about and makes veggie burgers, one of the biggest food trends of 2015.

No. 11:

Le Barricou, Williamsburg

Open since 2006, this bistro is known for brunch. There you go.

No. 12:

Sweet Chick, Lower East Side

Fried chicken, waffles, hip hop.

No. 13:

Vinegar Hill House, Vinegar Hill

A beautiful and delicious place, yes, but we think people take Uber here because there is literally no subway nearby.

No. 14:

Upland, Flatiron

A new spot with rave reviews and a "California" burger with avocado. Very attractive.

No. 15:

Lido, Harlem

Bottomless mimosa brunch is a big thing here.
