Breakfast near the Brooklyn Bridge

  • p

I will be staying near the Brooklyn Bridge with my husband and teenagers during a November weekend and am looking for a good breakfast place nearby. Any suggestions?

  1. Bubby's on Main Street. American comfort food. We went to a wedding reception there after the ceremony beneath the Brooklyn Bridge and it was lovely.

      can you tell me more about the food at the wedding at Bubby's?

    2. Not cheap, but the breakfast in the Brooklyn Marriott is pretty good.

      1. Thanks for the help.

        1. If it's a weekend, hop over to Smith St. and you have plenty of options:

          Bar Tabac
          Apt 138 (very nice stuffed french toast with blueberries)
          Boerum Hill Food Co.

          And further down the street is Chestnut, whose brunch (sunday only) is the best I've found in the area.

          1. Eat in or take out? One of my favorite breakfasts is taking out ham and egg on a croissant and a coffee from Lassen & Hennings and walking over to the promenade. Cheap and awesome.

            1. Superfine has a decent brunch, and often pleasant live music. Very DUMBO vibe. Alternatively, a picnic from the market, pastries from the bakery (water st) enjoyed in the park sure would be nice.

              1. If you want simple but good American diner food, check out Clark's Corner on Clark and Henry.

                  if you are staying at the bk marriott, definitely walk up smith street or atlantic for some great options. jolie? bar tabac, chestnut, cafe luluc also.

                2. Two good spots on Montague street for breakfast/brunch are Teresa's (cute Polish diner) and the Heights Cafe which has a great brunch on Saturday and Sunday.
