where to have breakfast/brunch before Brooklyn Flea/Brooklyn Museum Sunday?

hi there - would like to have a tasty start to the day before checking out the Flea in the late morning, and the Museum in the afternoon.

  1. I would suggest Melt on Bergen St in Park Slope. It sounds counter-intuitive, but it's really pretty close to the Williamsburgh Savings Bank.

    Now that the Flea has moved from Bishop Laughlin, I wouldn't bother with anything in Fort Greene.

    1. I wouldn't eat before the Flea. There's good food there. I would get there on the earlier side and eat from the vendors.

      1. bristen's eatery makes great pancakes, and chicken and waffles and the like, its about a 10-15 minute walk tops to the museum from there

        my review on yelp:

        1. flea is great fun and should snack there
          being as that may be for you i recommend franny's at 295 flatbush for great pizza
          juniors of course at dekalb and flatbush
          peter lugers for a great burger rezze rqd
          diner in williamsburg or marlow's next door

            Just an FYI: Peter Luger, Diner and Marlow's are no where near the Flea or the Brooklyn museum and I would absolutely steer you away from Juniors.

            The General Greene just up the block on Dekalb is really great though for breakfast/brunch though.

              if you have a car all are less than 15 minutes away from the museum
              and also the outdoor flea
              but i think the fun is eating at the flea
