Bklyn Sunday Brunch without a huge line??

I live in Brooklyn Heights & often get stuck waiting for anywhere from 1/2 hr to an hour for good brunch on Sundays (usually somewhere on Smith St). Any suggestions where I can take my not-very-inventive father & brother for Sunday brunch where I can get something more exciting than diner food, but they're not going to be overwhelmed by either a long line or a "crazy" menu??? Thanks!!

  1. How about Cafe on Clinton? I've always had decent food there and I think it is often forgotten in the brunch rush.

    1. I had brunch at Apt 128 last Sunday and enjoyed it as always. They don't open until 11:00 am, which is when we got there, and it was empty. It started filling up later, but if you get there early enough there shouldn't be a wait at all. The food isn't spectacular, but it's not "crazy" either. I had the orange-infused French toast and loved it. The bacon was too greasy for my taste this time, but other times I've been there it was perfect. And they brought some lovely free muffins along with water when we sat down, which was nice.

      1. I live in Red Hook and go to Alma on Columbia ( not too far from the heights) sometimes for brunch, rarely crowded and a great view of downtown Manhatttan from the enclosed roof deck.
