There isn’t much that compares to a lazy summer morning. Spend yours chowing down on some delicious brunch foods while working on your brunch buzz. Eateries all over the city offer brunch menus throughout the year and some revamp their brunch menus depending on season and market availability. Here are five brunch spots we love!
The ultimate keg and eggs brunch can be found at The Cannibal, beer and butcher shop café that specializes in—you guessed it—meat and beer. Sit at the 8-seat butcher counter for the best view of the chefs at work or enjoy the summer weather and sit in the garden section. Pair any one of their 450 beers paired with a delicious scrambled egg sandwich with cacio pepe and bacon. The menu also offers items such as country biscuits with sausage gravy and grilled cheese with Vermont cheddar, Gruyere, bacon and pork belly. Not in the mood for the traditional bellini? Try The Cannibal’s “brewdriver,” a cocktail that uses beer as a mixer. Brunch is served Saturday & Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Say "cheese" today and head out to one of these top spots for a combination of crunchy, buttery bread and cheesy filling in honor of our favorite classic sandwich: the grilled cheese!

After hearing many good things about this grilled cheese shop in Astoria, we decided to go. It blew our minds and taste buds. Enjoying specialty coffee along with amazing grilled cheese sandwiches and washing it down with craft beer was quite an evening of fulfillment. This labor of love by the power couple, Ben Sandler and Jennifer Lim, is making many patrons infatuated with their product. The diverse cultural spin-offs of an American classic is what separates this shop from the rest. We suggest you try the Arahovas Feta with Ajvar Roasted Red Pepper Spread and dill on Focaccia Bread and the Manchego and Ricotta on Multi Grain Bread with Minted Eggplant and Capers.
