Agi's Counter

Agi’s Counter

Agi's Counter

If we lived in Crown Heights and had the metabolic endurance of a college sophomore, you’d find us at Agi’s Counter twice a week picking up pastries and an Alpine cheddar egg sandwich on a buttery Hungarian cheese biscuit.

This daytime cafe takes inspiration from the owner’s Hungarian-Austrian grandmother — who you’ll see pictured in a very cute frame by the kitchen. Much of the salad-and-sandwich-dominant menu here is dedicated to luxurious takes on Jewish-American classics (Agi’s tuna sandwich comes with horseradish and parsley salad, for example), while other dishes feel more like a distinct ode to Hungarian and Austrian food.

Assuming you aren’t intending to race a Labrador in Prospect Park afterwards, try the cheese-stuffed palacsinta crepes or the towering Leberkase breakfast sandwich with an exploding over-easy egg, thick griddled pork pate, and a sweet pear mostarda to round out all that richness. Agi’s certainly feels like a place for grabbing and going, but there are still plenty of places to sit once you’ve placed your order at the counter. Just make sure to get a couple of pastries on display by the register before you take a seat, and keep an eye out for special Hungarian doughnuts on Sundays.
