Sunday brunches have been a staple of my mornings since arriving to Brooklyn. Sometimes it’s an excuse to continue drinking through the day from the night before with a good breakfast as a compliment. However, Mimosa’s, Bloody Mary’s, and White Russians can only take your Sunday brunch so far. Lately, I have been trying different places to get a feel for the absolute best and letting the food count for more than just to fill a stomach full of booze.
The top of the list thus far has been Greenpoint Coffee House on the corner of Franklin St. and Green St in Brooklyn. While they don’t have one of those eye catching ‘all you can drink’ deals (which I’ve realized is normally to make up for the sub-par food), they make up for delicious dishes and stunning service. I haven’t tried anything else on the menu besides the poached eggs with hollandaise and avocado over English muffin, but it’s hard when you find the one palatte pleasing dish. Besides the food, the actual tea and coffee selection is outstanding.
I know there’s some other great suggestions for other great locations out there, let’s hear it.
