good DINER near bococa/bk heights/slope?

my girlfriend and i went to hope & anchor in red hook this morning for breakfast/brunch, and were greeted w/ a 30 minute wait time (THANK YOU IKEA). we were jonesing for dinerish food, but i couldn't think of any in the area.

what's a guy to do? do you chowhoundians have any good diner suggestions? (besides the one on smith/bergen. not a fan).

      Well, for this purpose I'd rate Teresa's on Montegue St as my top choice.

      1. re: Steve R

        I'll second that. I also like Clark Diner, which I think is now just called Clark's.

        If you're up for it, the greasiest of greasy spoons is The Donut House on Court between Sackett and Degraw. Great place for hungover brunch.

        1. re: Puppimus

          I second the motion for Teresa's. There is also Tom's in Prospect Heights. Also, dare I say Dizzy's?

      3. Teresa's is the best choice in BH. Kind of cramped and 80s-mauve inside, but sitting outside in nice weather is fairly pleasant. They have all the diner "usual suspects," plus a nod to Polish/E. European comfort foods (meaning you can get kielbasa as your breakfast sausage). I like the orange-ricotta pancakes, myself.

        1. sounds perfect. if i'm not at the ball fields in red hook on saturday you can catch me at theresa's :)
