Ah, the weekend… Whether you’re a worker bee or a full-time party animal, chances are you’ll be making brunch plans on Saturday or Sunday.
If you’re looking to spend a weekend morning indulging in some peaceful, tasty food with friends and family in Brooklyn, we’ve got the list for you.
Brooklyn is bursting with brunch spots offering everything from eggs Benedict to sweet potato hash, fish and chips to smoked salmon, spiced French toast to corned beef hash—and oh, who could forget the drinks?
Check out these four Brooklyn brunch spots worth rolling out of bed for.
Sunday in Brooklyn
Sunday in Brooklyn is an excellent place to relax and enjoy breakfast or brunch. This modern Brooklyn bistro near Domino Park serves brunch until 4 pm on the weekends, which means you can stay in bed all day and then enjoy avocado toast and wood-fired fried eggs.
Sunday in Brooklyn is an idea brought to life by three friends who enjoyed eating delicious food and drinking after long workweeks. To offer patrons the same experience, they opened this restaurant that serves brunch seven days a week.
There’s a mix of lighter bites on the menu, like yogurt with granola, and heartier fare, like pastrami black cod plate and malted pancakes.
If you want a friendly neighborhood restaurant, Walter’s is the place to be.
Brunch at Walter’s is popular due to its food quality, portions, and prices. This contemporary surf and turf eatery serves American cuisine from morning until night.
The atmosphere at Walter’s is suitable for almost anything, but mainly for simple, no-fuss events. Dinner at Barclays before a Saturday morning event, oysters and wine before going out, or a midnight snack. Whatever the case may be, Walter will always be there for you. We recommend the chicken and waffles, salmon donburi, the Saigon sandwich, and steak and eggs. Be sure to try their brunch cocktails as well!
Chez Ma Tante
Craving exotic flavors for brunch? Head over to Chez Ma Tante.
This popular neighborhood restaurant in Greenpoint offers French Canadian-inspired dishes such as a ham and cheese sandwich, kale and cheddar quiche, and country pate with pistachios and foie gras. Breakfast here is primarily about the pancakes – large specimens not too sweet or dense, but with a crispy outer crust.
You also have to try the tasty chocolate cakes, lemon pies, and pancakes if you dine here, and enjoy a range of delicious wines, beers, and juices when you’re thirsty.
Clinton St. Baking Co.
Clinton St. Baking Co. is famous for its delicious blueberry pancakes, which draw in the hungry and hungover from miles around.
This Manhattan brunch hotspot has fueled its success for two decades with inch-high buttermilk pancakes, chicken and waffles, and creamy, buttery grits, and lots more.
Those looking to avoid the lines can also buy coffee and baked goods from Clinton St. Baking Co.’s daily to-go counter, including chocolate chip scones and blueberry muffins. What’s not to love?
