      I had a wonderful brunch at Rose Water yesterday, on Union St., near 6th ave in Park Slope.

        daughter and friend went with high expectations and had an extremely disappointing brunch at Rosewater last weekend - said food tasted "weird" Among other things she said is that the bread tasted wrong with the food which suggests that there is not a lot of thought going into what they are dishing up. So look out.

        ICI and No. 7 are my go-to spots. But be forewarned that they do not offer eggs benedict/entirely predictable menus -- safe to check it out online first.

        I liked Stone Park but have heard on this board that it can be hit or miss, so you might not want to risk it.

            Pies n thighs has been closed for several months. Some other places in Williamsburg with great brunch are Egg, Roebling Tea Room and Five Leaves though.

              I miss PnT. But best brunch experience in Williamsburg by far- is Dressler!

                if you like bacon, you will probably enjoy brunch at Char No. 4.

          In Williamsburg, I had an amazing brunch last summer at Relish. More recently, a new place opened up, called the Rabbithole which has a good brunch everyday and the most delicious soups I have ever had.

              I love their scones. Especially blueberry.... It's soft where the berries are and touch of salt makes me go crazy! I was told to come early in the morning if I want for fresh out of the oven scones.

            You should specify where you will be starting from, or what area you are interested in, and the price range, and what ever else you are looking for.

                  Williamsburg - look up Polish places posts on CH, most places have a Polish mixed plate that is worth ordering w Polish Beer. Williamsburgh is completely covered on CH. Lots of non Polish too.

                Peter Luger's does lunch, I believe, on the weekends and many have sung praises about their burgers (I've been meaning to go forever). I really like Stone Park (haven't ever had a bad brunch there), Palo Santo and Applewood in Park Slope. Also, Al di la in PS recently started doing brunch - I haven't been, but if it's anything like dinner there it should be fabulous!

                  I had lunch at Stone Park a few days ago. I thought the ingredients and the cooking, as in getting a perfect medium rare burger as requested were spot on, but they almost ruin everything with the overkill of salt.
