'Egg' is the popular choice near Bedford Avenue. The service is painfully slow so if you order 'eggs rothko' then you need to wait for the hen to lay the golden egg. But the toasted Amy's challah bread with broiled tomato and seasonal mushrooms on the side are delish. The pancakes are ..... okay (not as good as Clinton Bakery) and the French toast is also okay. The other option is the Polish restaurant right across from the subway exit by North 7th Street. They make kielbasa and eggs on a roll and always have a nice Polish soup.

But if you are talking about 'Greater Williamsburg' then there's also the 'Kellog Diner' on Metropolitan Avenue and Union, the 'Garden Grill Diner' and 'Phoebe's' both on Graham Avenue. 'Enid's' on Manhattan Avenue right on McCarren Park is the place to see and be seen on the weekend for brunch. Excellent Bloody Mary's and the vibe is pure Williamsburg ..... which is to say ..... you'll feel like you're in Vermont.

"I have a friend who will be in Williamsburg Brooklyn in the morning..."

So, I guess they already know it's not going to be a "stay for breakfast" kind of night? ;o)

QB .... but it also never hurts to bring your own toothbrush and a 'get lucky' change of clothes ..... just in case.

EGG is supposed to be Southern breakfast. I just can't get into the grits concept either. If you here (I live in Williamsburg) then you should really try 'Enid's' for a late breakfast brunch. Get there at around 10:30 and get a table by the window overlooking the park ..... or else you might need to wait. The entire 'space' has a pretty unigue feel to it. Lots of flannel shirts, lots of ski caps, lots of hoodies, lots of tats ..... lots of Vermont-esque delicious goodness.
