Sunday Brunch in Brooklyn? Time Sensitive!

What is the best kosher Sunday brunch option in Brooklyn, other than Sunflower Cafe and Amazon? If you think that those are the only good options, which of is better?
Thanks so much!

      I don't think so. They open at noon. In any case, I should have mentioned that we want a dairy brunch.

    2. Have you considered Garden of Eat-In?

        I used to like Garden of Eat-In, but I haven't been back in a while, since I felt that it had gone downhill.

          Thanks, Adina! We really enjoyed our first visit to Basil, a while back, and definitely look forward to getting back there soon

        2. We decided on Sunflower, after all, which got much better reviews on other sites than Amazon Cafe. Unfortunately, we couldn't find parking close enough, and didn't want a long walk in yesterday's drenching rain. So, by default, we ended up in Renaissance, a few blocks away.

          They did have some omelets and panini's on the menu, and I ended up with an omelet panini.

          Sadly, it was a dissapointing choice. Though the menu called for an omelet with mozarella and tomato, the tomato ended up as part of a small (but tasty) salad on the side. The panini was small, on a boring piece of french bread, and the omelet was dry, and pretty flavorless.

          The best part of my meal, was their swiss hot chocolate (as opposed to the regular hot chocolate, which is also on the menu), which was rich with melting pieces of chocolate.

          I have to say that based on past experience, for lunch and dinner, Cafe Renaissance, is still a nice place, but I think that brunch at Sunflower would have probably been a much better choice.

          Very happily, our chowish day, ended up on a high note, with a delicious dinner at Pardes (our second visit), later on in the evening.

          More about that when I get a chance.
