      Just a solid brunch, not too expensive. My mom and sisters are coming to visit and I want to take them to brunch in DUMBO and then walk across the Bklyn Bridge.

      I'm guessing Grimaldi's pizza is out? It'll probably be mobbed anyways.

      What about Superfine on Front St. It's a nice space although the service can be a bit strange.

          Superfine only serves brunch on Sundays...

          There's really no such thing as "Saturday brunch" in Dumbo, assuming you're looking for eggs benedict & mimosas, etc. I'd normally steer people towards Bubby's (not sure what your specific aversion is... screaming kids? spacey service? food, maybe?), though if you're interested in a Dumbo lunch as opposed to "brunch" on Saturday you might want to try Superfine or Five Front, as stated above, or the Water Street Restaurant (66 Water Street). I'm sure for the moment service starts at these places at 11:30 AM at the latest.

            does five front not have brunch on saturdays? I just assumed they did, but i could be mistaken. i've been for brunch before (not sure what day it was) and they have the normal brunch fare.
