    Habitat in Greenpoint continues to have some of the best brunch in BK, despite a slight price hike. Plus, make your own bloody mary’s is always a good time.

    Bushbaby in BedStuy! Great prices and portions, and there are vegan options for almost everything. I absolutely love the unlimited mimosas specials, music, ambiance and loose teas.

    My vote is for ‘Other…Cafe Enduro on Q train to Prospect! The brunch is inventive, flavorful and funky bc it is nuevo Mexican. One of the standout dishes is the breakfast chicken mole nachos that are the best things I Loyally order b/c you get chicken mole, guacamole and heaps of deliciousness. Stop over, sit in or grab it to go and chill in the best park in NY Prospect right up the st. The bartenders are classic cool and the Sangrias n Margaritas are so worth the dizzy feeling. Support small business and fill your tum with brunch gold!!

    Tom’s Restaurant in Prospect Heights is always quick, inexpensive, and tasty. They are known for their lemon ricotta pancakes and cherry lime rickeys, but all of their pancakes come in a variety of flavors and come with a trio of flavored butters!

    I love Matchless in Greenpoint or Cebu in Bay Ridge (same owners, but different brunch menus), but the #1 brunch spot is Piper’s Kilt in the Bronx. $17 for a giant burger, huge portion of fries and UNLIMITED beer/mimosas/bloody marys.

    Miriam is awesome. But for some casual standard brunch fare, where long lines means free samples, there’s always Tom’s Restaurant in Prospect Heights. 

  7. Dizzy’s in Park Slope! Fun atmosphere and chocolate stuffed french toast. I don’t think much else needs to be said. CHOCOLATE STUFFED. This is why we enjoy being adults, because we can have alcohol (mimosas) and dessert for breakfast.

    Via Della Pace, East Village. Great Italian brunch, super awesome prices, and very cozy atmosphere. And unlike its neighbor, Cafe Orlin – no wait!

    I like the prix fix brunch at Harefield Road in Williamsburg on the weekends. $12 includes a plate, a mimosa or a bloody mary, and a coffee or a tea!

    Buttermilk Channel is good.. though I like Abilene more. Both on Court St in Cobble Hill, only a few blocks from each other. Or Seersucker – biscuits!!

    I cast my vote for The Farm on Adderley. They have some of the best eggs on the table done in any way you like them. Best yet, they support local farmers, so that is always a plus. All the delicious delectable are straight from the farm, so you know that it is always fresh!

    tandem in bushwick! their food is healthy, unique and delicious! i also agree that roberta’s makes a mean egg sandwich, ricotta pancakes, or scrambled eggs. yum! i’ve never heard of any those places. i dont travel far from east willburg for brunch.

    For super cheap and delicious, Acapulco in Greenpoint. If you can stand the wait, Egg in Williamsburg. But Harefield Road really takes the gold here for best food, service and ambiance!

  14. buttermilk channel! just had my birthday brunch there this past sunday. everything is delicious and reminds of home in the south. the homemade pickles are perfection.
