It's easy to walk by Reunion and assume it's just a coffee shop. In reality, however, it's an Israeli cafe that serves a bunch of breakfast and lunch stuff until 5pm every day (at which point they close). It's a great spot for a low-key brunch when you don't want to deal with a huge wait, and it's especially nice when you can sit on the patio out front and get some people watching done. You can have something like pancakes, schnitzel, or a plate of eggs with some cucumber salad and a few different dips.

Fletcher's Brooklyn BBQ
