Biscuits and Beer

I moved to East Flatbush over a decade ago and the landscape and name both have changed. I randomly saw this restaurant pop up near my house and decided to try it. I got an egg and cheese frittata sandwich, with smashed avocado and I added fried chicken. The egg was a little burnt, like bottom of pan. Chicken was cooked perfectly. I had a latte, it was amazing. I would go back try a hard cider, not a beer drinker.

Chocolat, brunch

So I have previous dinner post about this place. The food is still good, service still shaky. For some reason they served a large party ahead of our party of two. He did tell us about the wait, but a drink refill or an appetizer would’ve been a nice gesture. We ordered a pitcher of white sangria, cheddar and mozzarella omelet and a turkey burger. They do have unlimited mimosas and bellinis as an option. The pitcher was a better choice for us. The food was good, the burger was seasoned well. I would go back and jave something sweet, like pancakes or waffles. Maybe third times a charm with the service.

Beatstro, brunch

I am truly a Bk girl at heart, on a rare occasion I find myself in the Bronx. The menu was interesting, took me longer to decide on sweet or savory. We decided on mac and cheese as a share, so getting the chicken and waffle was an easier choice. The chicken was nicely fried and seasoned. The waffle had a nice crisp and flavor. Mac and cheese was made with shells amd was actually good. I would like to go back for happy hour and wings, my favorite.

Chip’s Family Restaurant, Connecticut

So I used to travel to Boston regularly and would pass the place in my travels. One year we went for birthday breakfast for my sister. The pancakes are so good. So good that I travel from Brooklyn to Connecticut at least twice a year for them. I have what’s called White Chocolate Rendezvous, white chocolate chips, macadamia nuts and fresh strawberries(which I have on the side). I also get eggs and turkey sausage. The pancakes are the main event. If you’re ever passing through Connecticut, look them up.

Blvd Bistro Brunch

I had dinner here before (see prior post), it was excellent. I was excited to go for brunch. My friend ordered steak and eggs with a side of cheese grits, I ordered the herb omelet with a side of turkey bacon. For drinks we had mimosas and bellinis. The potatoes and grits were room temperature, that was a little disappointing. The food itself was excellent, for sauces they served an African hot pepper sauce, jam and cane sugar butter, fantastic. For dessert we ordered pancakes. The were wonderful, pipping hot, they were served with melted butter and warm syrup. I actually used the cane sugar butter instead, my gosh it was the perfect end to the meal. All in all, this place serves delicious food.

Magic Hour

I had been really wanting to go here for a few months. Finally got a chance to go for brunch, it was worth the wait. We ordered the pancake stack with cotton candy on top. The actual pancakes were really good, seeved with blueberries apples and bananas. We ordered the frittata and chicken sausage. We split everything, so we had something savory and something sweet. For drinks we had the adult capri sun with grapefruit vodka and a frozen Arnold Palmer with vodka. Both drinks were super refreshing, I’m always a bit concerned with grapefruit cause it can be hit or miss. The mini golf course was available, we just took pictures on it. It’s three holes and a nice addition to your experience. The dj played a great mix of music. I would love to go back for happy hour or at least dinner to try that menu.

Clinton Street Baking Co

I came years ago, pretty much pre blogging and when they only occupied the one small space. I went on a weekday and there still was about 10 to 15 minute wait. I tried to go in the fall the wait was 45 minutes to an hour for my party of three. This time I ended up with no wait at the bar, the one perk of being a party of one, sometimes two. I ordered coffee, it’s endless which is great. I noticed they had chicken sausage on the specials menu, I ordered that and pancakes. I got my chocolate chips on the side. I didn’t want to be overwhelmed by the chocolate. These pancakes were fluffy, edges crispy, the syrup was warm and buttery. I did put some chips in between a two pancakes, I ate that section when they melted. Definitely would go back. I spent about $30 with tip. During the day it’s cash only.

Penelope Brunch

My birthday was on a Sunday this year.  Brunch is the best way to celebrate.  They had a $20 pre fixe, a main dish and a beverage. I ordered Nutella stuffed french toast and a white peach bellini. It was french bread, it was okay. I was much more impressed with the chicken apple sausage and bellini. They had some other interesting items that were unavailable. I would go back to try something else.



Toms, breakfast all day

Once in a while, I want a diner style full breakfast, I go to Tom’s on Washington.  There’s always a wait, it’s usually not that long. I have never been disappointed.  The pancakes are great, I love a good pancake.  My son gets the belgian waffle, it’s cooked perfectly. Definitely a great regular spot to go to. The price is right too.
