With warm weather still lingering for another month or two but the worst bite of summer long past, it is the perfect time to wander the streets and discover the neighborhood. And the Kensington/Prospect Park neighborhood is very worth discovering, especially on a lazy Sunday morning. More local restaurants than ever are offering brunch at great prices. It just takes knowing where to look.
Le P’tit Paris Bistro is one great local option, and at only $10 is a good deal for Brooklynians looking to save a little money. They’ve got traditional brunch fare like pancakes and poached eggs on their menu, but also have classic French cuisine like snails for the more open-minded. Another option is the Fez Art Cafe a few blocks down. Their brunch prices are generally in the single digits, though a drink is not included. Rose Water Cafe is a bit more expensive at $14 for brunch, but has an elegant menu with organic and vegetarian options.
There is no better place to live in the world than Brooklyn when it comes to grabbing a book or newspaper and settling in for a delicious late breakfast. As Kensington and Prospect Park become ever more diverse, the restaurant options will continue to expand, something local residents can only be thankful for. After all, in the city that never sleeps, being able to relax at least once a week is worth its weight in golden French bread.
