29 Jun The Vic List: Brooklyn Brunch
Brooklyn is one of those places that you immediately fall in love with— it just has a vibe. My boyfriend is a bonafide Brooklynite, so naturally 90% of my NYC time is spent with him…. in BK. Our favorite thing to do (aside from lay around the house) is to eat. I make it a point to go to a new restaurant every time I’m in New York, so this list is a roundup of my 5 favorite brunch spots in Brooklyn. In no particular order, and missing photos— because I would rather devour my food and savor moments than stage them for pictures. So… you’ll just have to take my word for it.
Pure Bistro– (no photo). Cute, quaint, and healthy— that’s how I would describe Pure Bistro. The LA girl in me had to order the Avacado Toast, and it was nothing short of amazing.
Peaches– A little bit of the south nestled in Brooklyn. The prices are fair and the portions are large. The shrimp and grits will rival any recipe out there.
Blessings Cafe– size wise, it’s probably the definition of a “hole in the wall”. But what it lacks in space, it makes up in aesthetic. Both the indoor and outdoor areas are an Instagrammers dream. The food is good, and very healthy. Healthy like…they don’t put sugar in things (so be prepared). The French toast was SO good. It’s a unique blend of thick bread, peaches, blueberries, and plums. I recommend trying it at least once. Also, order the grapefruit juice… it’s refreshingly fresh.
Rose Water– Located in Park Slope… it feels very hipster. The vibe is cute and the food is great. I had the pre fixe brunch which included a meal and cocktail for $24. Like a basic bitch of brunch, I had the French toast and a mimosa. The French toast was great, nothing too unique. The portion sizes are large for the price.
Milk & Honey– I’m a frequent flyer here. It’s the perfect little coffee shop to get work done, have a meeting, or grab brunch. Their Golden Milk is my go-to and you can’t go wrong if you order the breakfast tacos.
