Williamsburg Morning grub?

Anyone have suggestions on fantastic breakfast spots in Williamsburg? Considering breakfast is the best and most important meal of the day......hmmm?

  1. Fada is great if you want steak frites, a basket of pain, a crispy croisant. Relish has great atmosphere. For lovely warm fresh donuts, Aurora. And AquaSanta has a great list of brunch plates that comes with dessert! Yummmm!

    1. in the south part of greenpoint by McCarren park, theres a great brunch place called Enid's

      1. pies and thighs has the best brunch (and some of the best food in general) in the area - catfish and grits, pulled pork hash, biscuits and gravy - though only on saturday and sunday. you can get an egg sandwich on one of their fabulous biscuits during the week, but they don't have the full menu.

            who could forget? as far as i'm concerned, they can do no wrong.

        2. also, egg -- on n5 around bedford (it's what sparky's is before noon). i haven't been there in a couple of months, but their omelet is full of cheese and their coffee is strong.

          1. I think egg has the best breakfast in the area, but it can be difficult to get into. Others mentioned Enid's and Fada, which are also good choices. I'm generally not a fan of omelettes, but my husband and I recently tried Juliette and the omelette I had was the fluffiest and probably best restaurant omelette I've had. I love the baked eggs at Fabiane's, and Diner always has interesting and tasty specials - I recently had a bowl of smokey pulled pork and a poached egg over grits there that was a real standout (they also have one of the better bloody marys around, if that's your thing).

            If you want to spend a little more, Dressler's Sunday brunch is also really good.

              Egg is awesome but they don't serve alcohol.. not sure how important a mimosa is to the start of your day.
