This place! Oh, goodness, this place! Honestly, the best brunch I have ever had! The eggs, all of the ingredients, are the freshest, locally sourced when possible. The eggs were beautiful, dark golden yolks and full of flavor. The chicken and waffle had some zing. The chicken was moist and delicious. The waffle was more than an afterthought, crunchy, light,...

Really enjoyed a casual dinner out at this local restaurant. Had a wonderful local brew (full sail amber) and their burger. The burger was done perfectly and had a delightful blend of toppings. The fries that it came with were delightful and delicious. My friend had one of their soups (I believe it was pumpkin) and it was delicious as... More

A very cute and casual breakfast/brunch spot. I have been here a couple of times and have enjoyed myself each time. They even serve an excellent weekday breakfast, which can be hard to come by. Also, an excellent chai. Two thumbs up and I intend to eat here again!

Sorry to other reviewers who liked this restaurant. We didn't, which was disappointing. The food was certainly not exceptional. My salmon was overcooked and dry, the fries which accompanied it, just swamped the plate (there was no effort made at presentation) were also overcooked. My husband had The Brooklyn Burger, which he described as ordinary and had the same problem... More

Delicious food and nice casual atmosphere, excellent bloody marys and other brunch cocktails. Also serves wonderful Stumptown coffee for take-away as well. This place is a local favorite for brunch so be prepared to wait - but it's worth it!

This is one of those places in Brooklyn you hear about. Nice little chic coffee shop in Greenpoint, with also a great menu of food. I've mainly got the coffee, but I hear the food is good too. Friendly service, good atmosphere, very hipster. LOL

Informal and cool-detached service which might be a Brooklyn thing, but could not fault the two family experiences we had. The operation works, music and coffee are excellent, the ambience is 'lived-in and bohemian' rather than slick and sharp. However much friendlier welcome at Mrs Kim's just up the road.

I live a block away. They have amazing Stumptown coffee but the food can fall short..their brunch and lunches are great, dinner not so much. Also, don't expect to be asked if you need help or want to sit--the staff is pretty smug.

Excellent brunch spreads with a variety of homemade hot salsas to go with your huevos rancheros. My personal favorite brunch dish is the huevos adobado, served up with excellent coffee from Stumptown. They also do a monstrous (and scrumptious) hamburger, and the veggie burger is famously good. I've done brunch and lunch here and both offer great menus and good... More
