  1. Isn't that SoHo/TriBeca place Bubby's also in DUMBO? We had an okay brunch (it was a Sunday) recently in the heights, sorry can't remember the name. Seemed to be a popular neighborhood spot. If I think of it I'll update this post.

      The best real breakfast places in Brooklyn Heights are Teresa's on Montague Street and Clark's Corner on the corner of Clark and Henry.

      Teresa's is Polish, Clark's is Greek, both are excellent and cheap.

      Great omelettes, pancakes, waffles, eggs, bacon, .... the works.

      The home fries are best at Clark's. They make a delicious Corned Beef Hash every day as well.

    2. teresa's has good breakfast
      on montague. west of hicks st

      1. smith street has a ton of places, though the weekday aspect is a little beyond me. Patois was wonderful, the cuban place was okay. but in carroll gardens, Smith Street is your best bet. For the Heights i would go for Tazza, which is charming, fresh and relaxed. It is on atlantic, so it is on the heights fringes. I have been to Tazza on the weekdays, and there are just a lot of kids.

        1. Petite Cafe--Court Street around Luquer or Nelson is charming, and very manageable during the week.

          1. Tazza is closed for health violations.

              1. Miriam on Court @ Baltic is open for breakfast during the week - a great bargain.

                  Try Chicory on Degraw bet. Clinton & Court.

                2. How about Siggy's (Henry btw Pineapple/Orange)? It's especially good if you like hippie twiggy crap; Which I do--I love the Siggy's Special, which is quinoa, oats, fruits formed into a sort of French toast shape and served with syrup. They've got eggs, muffins, yogurt and granola, all the usual breakfast suspects, but health-ed up and organic-ed up. So turkey bacon, not bacon-bacon.
