F&F Pizzeria is a new pizza place from the people behind Frankies 457 Spuntino and Franks Wine Bar, and it also happens to be located in a converted garage between these two very good Italian spots in Carroll Gardens. But unlike its neighbors, F&F is a counter-service slice shop with a rotating list of minimal toppings that you eat in slice form or as a whole $25 pie. The crust is crispy, the sauce is incredible, and the cheese tastes like it came straight from a cow in the back. There are no chairs, tables, or even ledges here, but you can stand on the curb out front, stare lovingly at your half-finished slice, and wonder how many of the world’s problems could be solved by bringing together a few people who treat bread like a vitamin.

Five Leaves has been a Brooklyn hipster staple since 2008. We don't love it as much as other people seem to, but brunch is good, they do a solid burger, and the scene is always entertaining.
Tom’s is a Brooklyn classic for breakfast and lunch since 1936. You know what’s kept them in business for so long? Free stuff. That, and really good sausage.
La Isla Cuchifritos
We love La Isla Cuchifritos for the fact that a) it’s cheap and delicious, and b) it sort of feels like you’re grubbing in tropical Puerto Rico rather than not-so-tropical Brooklyn.
