Pop’s Diner

A Flushing gem, Pop’s Diner is a local favorite that mainly caters to a customer base of loyal regulars. Here, you’ll find traditional American breakfast options at affordable prices. Jus Celino, the owner and host, greets all of his guests as they walk through the doors with a warm, friendly smile and humorous charm. Customers are then seated quickly and are on their way to enjoying a freshly made breakfast special. If you’re in the mood to mingle and indulge in breakfast classics like pancakes and French toast, Pop’s Diner is the place to be.

Java Day Cafe

Rustic and tasty are two words that best describe the experience at Java Day Cafe. Catering specifically to a daytime crowd, this popular breakfast, brunch and lunch spot is the perfect place for a pit stop. Try their delicious gourmet French toast or a Belgian waffle with Nutella while listening to relaxing music in the background.

Whitestone Bagels Factory

This bustling, cash-only bagel shop offers some of the freshest bagels in town. An actual bagel factory, customers can indulge in freshly baked bagels all throughout the day. It’s no surprise that Whitestone Bagels Factory has an impressive selection of bagels and cream cheese, but this Flushing brunch spot also offers the likes of egg sandwiches, cold salads and muffins. The line may be lengthy, but the delicious food is worth the wait.

Hunan Kitchen of Grand Sichuan

Not your typical brunch cuisine, Hunan Kitchen of Grand Sichuan offers a unique alternative to traditional brunch favorites. Delicious spicy food and an authentic Chinese atmosphere are just two factors that make this restaurant a great choice when brunch time rolls around. Choose from options such as pork shoulder, braised bamboo and seafood.

Hahm Ji Bach

Not your typical American brunch spot, Hahm Ji Bach is a great venue — for meat lovers in particular. Banchan, which are small side dishes served with Korean-style rice, seafood pancakes and pork belly are just a few delicious alternatives to your typical omelet and mimosa brunch. Hahm Ji Bach serves traditional Korean dishes, enticing enough for any cultural foodie.
