The Best Brunch in Williamsburg Brooklyn

We are frequently asked for our favorite brunch spot in Williamsburg. Why? Well because people brunch before our SUNDAY FUNDAY Williamsburg Brooklyn tour of course!  So we decided to share our list: El Almacen – the atmospherics are amazing. so quaint. so chic. and the fact that it’s argentine and run by argentines doesn’t hurt. Rosarito Fish Shack and Shelter Pizza are all in the same family. reasonably priced and delicious. Station Restaurant – conveniently located where most of our tours start! this is a hit for the yummy food and BOTTOMLESS BRUNCH. Enjoy! Two Door Tavern – RED. VELVET. PANCAKES. The end. Cafe Mogador – otherwise known as, the old standby. always fun, always delicious. try to sit in the atrium in the back.  Juliette – see above. plus you can sit outside on their roof deck (when it’s warm enough) ,…

Enjoy 7 Delicious Tastings on our Brooklyn Food Tour!

Just check out what one of our recent reviewers said: “I would recommend this Brooklyn tour both for people from ‘away’ and for New Yorkers who want to see what super-hip Williamsburg has to offer. The tour is well-planned — just long enough, lots of good food choices. Any more food and it would’ve been too much; we were pretty stuffed! Also it was a nice small group — wouldn’t be as nice in a huge gang. Lauren, the tour director and owner has laid out some very appealing tours and it’s a great way to spend a few hours walking, watching, talking to people and eating plenty.”
