If you’re looking for a breakfast sandwich good enough to inspire a new poetry section in your diary, head to Ciao Gloria in Prospect Heights. Their PEC (prosciutto, egg, and cheese) comes on a brioche bread roll with pesto and arugula and it’s one of the reasons we get out of bed on Saturday mornings They also have toast options with things like ricotta and avocado on top, plus a large selection of baked goods. You can order at the counter to-go, but you might as well take a seat and look out of the big windows onto Vanderbilt ave.

Egg has always been a staple for Williamsburg, and they take a very serious, farm-to-Chuck Taylor approach to their food. So serious that they even have their own farm outside of the city.
Claro is a great Oaxacan-inspired restaurant that’s even better when you’re sitting in the backyard.
Off the main stretch in Williamsburg is Aurora, a place charming enough for a First/Early in the Game Date, calm enough for Dinner with the Parents, and with an insane, well-greened Outdoor/Patio Situation.
