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.

    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

      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:

        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.

          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.
