It should come as no surprise that a borough known for its trend-setting residents and sought-after entertainment is home to some of the buzziest brunches in New York City (no pun intended). From two-course Italian feasts to South-meets-North noshes, Brooklyn’s best brunches are designed to be washed down with unlimited drinks. Just in time for the weekend, here are the best bottomless brunches in Brooklyn, New York.

In Brooklyn’s South Williamsburg and DUMBO, the hottest ticket in town isn’t to any show or event, but to Randolph Beer’s popular weekend brunch. Here, $41 will get you one entrée and 90 minutes of brunch punches, select beers, and more. With elevated comfort food classics such as grilled cheese sandwiches with Nutella and ricotta and breakfast nachos, Randolph’s is well worth the wait—and the potential post-brunch hangover.
Beer buffs, take note: the most hopping brunch scene in Brooklyn can be found at East Williamsburg’s One Stop Beer Shop. Every weekend from 11 am to 4 pm, brew fiends can enjoy their fill of Staropramen beer (a Czech lager) alongside American eats, such as bacon, egg, and cheddar sandwiches and breakfast pizzas—all for just $22. For you traditionalists out there, the Shop also offers two-for-one mimosas and full-priced cocktails.
Is the brunch at Giovanni’s Brooklyn Eats the best (or, should we say, booziest?) deal in town? The restaurant’s South Slope neighbors seem to think so, thanks to Giovanni’s impressive $18.95 brunch, featuring two courses and unlimited mimosas and Bloody Marys. Italian eaters will love the spot’s baked egg-topped polenta, French toast with mascarpone, and food coma-inducing dishes, such as baked pasta with ground sausage and rigatoni in a four cheese cream sauce. Tip: Conscious consumers shouldn’t miss Giovanni’s gluten-free pasta options.
At Baron’s in Bed-Stuy, “modern American dining” is what’s on the menu. Here, brunch, which is served on weekends from 11 am to 4 pm, features brioche French toast served with homemade ice cream, poached eggs-topped corn cakes, and all-you-can-drink mimosas. Morning boozing and culture-combining cuisine? What could be more modern American than that?
Count on a Brooklyn bar-cum-music venue to deliver one of the borough’s best (and most unexpected) boozy brunches. For just $34.99, you can join the trendy diners at Baby’s All Right for unlimited Bloody Marys, mimosas, and Greyhound screwdrivers. With a menu of diverse dishes, including everything from chilaquiles verdes to croque madames to the amusingly monikered “Things in a Bowl,” Baby’s All Right reminds brunchers that fun isn’t relegated to the evening alone.
South Slope’s j’eatjet? is on a mouthwatering mission to “reinvent the term ‘bar food’ one order at a time.” Offering menu items such as burgers with waffle buns, poutine topped with over-easy eggs, and French toast bites with seasonal cream cheese, we’d say the popular dining destination has succeeded. To enhance its bar food focus, j’eatjet? also offers bottomless mimosas at its weekend brunch.
The $20 brunch at this Prospect Heights haunt features American fare with a Caribbean flair, all designed to be washed down with bottomless mimosas. Impossible to pin down, the sometimes surprising, always delicious menu at Woodland includes fried chicken and waffles, ackee and saltfish spring rolls, Scottish salmon burgers, and much more.
Savor a taste of the South without leaving the city at Soco in Clinton Hill. This “Southern Fusion restaurant concept” corners the market on South-meets-North noshes with dishes such as eggs Benedict featuring crawfish cakes and toasted mini bagels, creole gumbo with seasonal vegetables, and buttermilk fried chicken and kosher pickle sandwiches. Tip: While the bottomless brunch here extends only to mimosas, Soco’s unique cocktail selection is worth the splurge.
