Hi friends, welcome back! Recently, Jon and I checked out a popular restaurant in NYC called Sunday in Brooklyn. I had seen quite a few people posting about their famous pancakes and cute drinks on Instagram, and when I discovered they had a pop-up location in the Seaport District near our apartment, I immediately made a Saturday afternoon brunch reservation. Our reservation happened to be on the day of the blizzard, but we made it through the snow and sludge to the oasis inside. (Warning: this post will cause hunger)
This picture below was taken when we were leaving and the restaurant was clearing out. When we arrived all of these tables were filled and the place was buzzing with happy chatter! I especially loved the plant themed decor throughout, even the bill came in a cute little pot.
I’m a sucker for cute looking drinks so I ordered the Honeybear on Holiday (Bacardi 4 Year Rum, Montenegro, Amaro, Apricot, lime, Pineapple, Cumin, Honey) described as “Tropical, fruity, and lightly savory”. Jon ordered the Polar Bear Club (Bacardi rum superior, Aquavit, Coconut, Pineapple, Lime, Cucumber) described as “A frozen Pina Colada”. Both of these tasted delicious and looked “beary” cute!
The star of the meal was The SUNDAY PANCAKES™ topped with Hazelnut Maple Praline and Brown Butter, these were the best pancakes I’ve had in my life! (You know they’re legit if they’re trade marked!) The edges were perfectly crisped and the hazelnut maple praline on top tasted perfectly sweet. These tasted so flavorful without being nauseatingly sweet like some pancakes/waffles can be. I think I could’ve eaten two by myself, but probably not three.
Jon and I also shared the Egg & Cheese Sandwich with Gochujang Aioli, Crispy Potatoes, and Cheddar on a Brioche Bun. I’m not the biggest egg sandwich person, I’d rather eat the egg and the bread separately, but it tasted great! I was surprised that the “Crispy Potatoes” were actual potato chips (homemade of course), but they gave the breakfast sandwich a nice crunch!
The menu is on the smaller side, but features so many delicious sounding options.
Sunday in Brooklyn also has a location in London along with their original location in Williamsburg. Even during a blizzard almost every table was filled when we went, so I’d HIGHLY recommend making a reservation or you may not be able to get seated. We’ve walked by a few times and it’s always busy! I’d definitely recommend dining at Sunday in Brooklyn! I can see why it’s so popular, we absolutely loved dining here! The food and drinks were delicious, service was great, and the ambiance was fun but chill. After our brunch, Sunday in Brooklyn earned a top spot on my exclusive list of places in NYC I’d recommend, and I’d love to try their dinner menu one day. Which would you order – the pancakes or sandwich?
