Breakfast at Bubby's in DUMBO- Never again.

  • 2

We have friends visiting the city this weekend and offered to treat them to breakfast--thought Bubby's in DUMBO would be a good choice for the views and because we know from past experiene it has a large breakfast menu. First off, soon after we walked up to the hostess stand around 10am hard rock started blaring from the speakers. I mean blaring! When we asked if the music could be turned down a bit, the hostess smirked and said "no." We should have left then. For the record, we were not the first folks in the place--not even close. I'm guessing there were about 25 diners. So here we go. We asked for a bread basket to start. We were told that they were out of bread baskets. We were offered 2 biscuits--they arrived at our tabled obviously micorwaved. They were scorching and then turned to stone within seconds. My husband ordered a hash dish with eggs he asked for home fries-- told they were out of home fries. We ordered silver dollar pancakes for our son. They arrived cold. The whole thing wasn't just bad, it was one of the worst restaurant breakfasts I've had in years. $150 flushed down the toilet. Very very disappointing.

  1. Don't worry that too many will follow in your footsteps. Bubby's in Brooklyn is closing up shop any day now. Maybe that's why they were "out" of so many things? Maybe they were genuinely out! For good!
