Brunch spots in Park Slope?

  • 9

I'm looking for a brunch place this weekend in Park slope or thereabouts. Boozy is better - I kow about W&D's list of spots, but it seems like Brooklyn options on the list are limited. Any good recs?

  1. I like the vibe at Sidecar in South Slope (5th & 15th). At the other end, Bogota Latin Bistro dies a nice brunch. What's W&D?

      Stone Park Cafe: Good food - Bar
      Moutarde: Good food - Bar

      1. Had brunch at Maria's Mexican Bistro last summer - all you can drink Bloody Marys etc. and the food was really quite good and very inexpensive.

        1. My husband and I had brunch at Palo Santos for the first time today (based on recommendation of a neighbor). We both loved it.

          The owner/chef changes the menu often. We learned that his experience is derived from researching and visiting Carribean/Mexican/S. American - even Southern U.S. - regions and putting his spin on traditional dishes.

            I've been wanting to go to this place for a while... Some friends love it. Can you run down what you had?

              They have some regular items such as pupusas (have not had), fish & grits (OK) and steak & eggs (good). But then there are entrees that they rotate week by week such as wild boar hash, rabbit, and marinated pork; all of these are delicious. They usually offer a duck confit hash too. And often there's a cactus-filled corn quesadilla which is quite satisfying. It should be mentioned that this is not a boozy place... mimosas & sangria are what to expect for brunch.

          2. Palo Santo is great. Love their brunch & it's usually not too crowded. I find the Get Fresh brunch food really skimpy. Maybe I just hit them on a bad day. I think Stone Park is excellent for brunch & I like that you can make a reservation (man I hate those long brunch lines/scrums). I've heard good things about Fonda, but haven't been yet.

              Fonda has a good brunch. And 1 block down 7th Avenue at 14th Street Cafe Steinhof is a reliable destination. I like their French Toast with stewed dried fruit. Applewood stands out in the neighborhood. Great brunch, and equally superb dinner. Rosewater is excellent for brunch even though the menu is somewhat limited. Belleville on 5th Avenue is hit and miss, but brunch is generally satisfying. For huevos rancheros Tacos Nuevo Mexico on 5th Ave (close to 12th Street) is always a good stand by.
