Any recommendations for brunch in Red Hook? Planning to do a morning trip to Ikea with the bf on Sunday and would love to sample the brunch offerings in the neighborhood before we go.

    Your choices in Red Hook are limited. Hope & Anchor is your best bet.

      I've enjoyed brunch at Kevin's on Van Brunt, between Visitation and Pioneer. Not much on atmosphere, but the food is very good and the prices are gentle. http://www.menupages.com/restaurants/...

        I second the vote for Kevin's. Have been twice for brunch and both times it was stellar. Agreed the decor isn't much but the prices are commensurate.

          A third vote for Kevin's. Their seafood dishes are great.
          It's also BYOB, so don't forget to bring along a bottle of cava or prosecco to drink.

        home/made is great for brunch. The scramble with fontina and mushrooms is delicious and the grilled bread that comes with -- YUM!

        They are super nice and laid back here -- couches and coffee tables mainly. They also have a small but beautiful garden!

          RThis is the best choice. Sit in the garden. Very good brunch.

          Hi stampita,

          I second Hope & Anchor though, to be fair, I haven't been to Home/Made or Kevin's.

          I've really liked the various types of hash at Hope & Anchor a lot (the chorizo one especially) and the coffee is pretty good.

          I've also had the breakfast burrito, which arrived piping hot and fresh with lots of delicious goodies inside but it needed something to moisten the fillings a bit (a little bit of hollandaise perhaps?) to bring the flavors together. But that's really just a quibble.

          Service is fine and friendly. Space is relaxed and funky. Be sure to check out the tattoo wall paper in the restrooms for a retro fix.

          I like Hope & Anchor and have found it to be a very pleasant choice before heading into IKEA. Plus, you can grab a little something at Baked and split it with your bf if you're both not too full.

          Ciao,

          Glendale is hungry...
