Homestyle Brunch in Brooklyn
Jimmy's Diner, tucked in a nook between Williamsburg and Greenpoint, is a cozy, unpretentious place grab brunch in Brooklyn. They're one of the few places I can name where every single item on the menu is something I want to order, so I keep coming back for more. The savory veggie bowl with homemade home fries and topped with two eggs warms me up on the coldest winter mornings. Always ask what the specials are because they change weekly. My coffee cup was regularly filled with freshly brewed Stumptown, and the friendly waitstaff always let us linger a bit longer after we're done eating. They also have a bar, which is convenient if you're eating alone with a good book for company. I recommend bringing cash and getting there before 11am on the weekends to avoid waiting for a table.
