favorite brunch place in park slope?

usual top picks are applewood and stone park cafe. i hear rose water does a good brunch, and chestnut in carroll gardens. what are your favorites for good weekend brunch in the neighborhood - both of the nicer caliber, like those mentioned, or totally casual?

      Miriam's is excellent! Highly rec'd for brunch that is both traditional and not.

        Stone Park and Black Pearl are both really great

          For going all out: Stone Park (def. prefer it to Rosewater in this category)

          For fantastic brunch on the (pretty) cheap: Cousin John's

          For great experience for the price: Beso

            i like the rosewater for the brunch. they make a great salt cod cake that goes well with poached farm fresh eggs.

              I second Beso, no place has a more creative menu and great prices. Duck empenadas are sensational and huevos rancheros are a staple for my wife and I.

                Applewood if you are going on a Sunday.

                  great! i will put miriam's and beso on my list to try. we ended up having brunch on saturday at stone park cafe. a few notes:

                  * we got there at 11, not long after they'd opened, which was great for getting a good table
                  * the loud rock music had to go - even my black sabbath loving friend said it was too much for her - but they did turn it down upon request.
                  * the raspberry champagne cocktail was delicious but too much juice and not enough champage - i think it's supposed to be at least 1/2 or 2/3 champagne
                  * the potatoes were all delicious!
                  * the quesadilla with tomatillo sauce was also delicious
                  * pancakes were tasty
                  * my scrambled eggs were done wonderfully - not overcooked

                    i'll chime in on beso. at brunchtime, they serve a basket of these silver dollar cornmeal pancakes — i forget what they're called — that are a little bit sweet and very delcious.
