Went there for a Saturday brunch. Waiter took forever to take our order, then food took another forever to come. Too bad because it was quite good. They need to train their staff better but the cook is perfect

We stumbled across this place in Brooklyn. Seriously tasty salad of the day and $5 sangria all day. Really worth a visit!

The food is ok but not excellent. But for a nice dinner or lunch in a cute place in brooklyn this is way to go. Not expensive and the staff is very friendly and take good care of you.

I loved this place! A friend took us on our last day in NYC and I loved the green scrambled eggs with lamb. Fantastic and buzzing atmosphere. I will definitely go back on my next trip to NY!

A cute find in Fort Greene area, where loads of great little spots can be found. I loved the breakfast/brunch dishes, many of which are egg based and come with a little potatoes and salad. Lots of flavor and things to taste on one plate....More

We had brunch after attending Lafayette Presbyterian Chuch. Loved the ambience. Although packed to the rafters, the service was swift and efficient. A very creative menu with mostly organic offerings. The quality of the meal was great, fresh and tasty. Definitely a treat.
