My family--including Grandma and Grandpa--are coming into town to celebrate my birthday. Any suggestions for a good place for brunch in Wmsburg or nearby?

      I'm a big fan of Traif, so would second that. But my next brunch will be at Fatty 'Cue. Also, Gordon Bennet does a decent English brekkie, so if that's something you're into it could be nice. Its pretty quiet in there too, so easy to talk.

            Dressler or Aurora.
            Excellent food and they take reservations.

              go to Mymoon.

              Great place for large group, tall ceilings very open space.

                Aurora is terrible - ugh! It used to be delicious when they opened, but has fallen off...

                  agreed, aurora is so bad - the food is unimaginative and not well-balanced.

                    For what it's worth, friends just went to Aurora last night for dinner and absolutely loved it. Apparently the chef of 2 years just left - which might explain kariface's & selenster's comments.

                    Egg does an excellent brunch but it can get very crowded. The tables are on the small side, I'm not sure it would be ideal for a large group.

                      egg is fantastic but the idea of taking an elderly couple and my entire family there is ridiculous, especially on a weekend! service is harried, crowds are large and the wait long. i mean, sure, there's a REASON why it is so popular, but i would never want to have a leisurely family brunch there on a sunday.

                      perhaps consider fada on n.8th and driggs for french fare. there's a decent mostly covered outdoor patio area, and the croque madame is lovely.
