Café Luluc

This bustling French joint features mirrored walls and ornamental ceilings that will take you back to another time. Their customers rave about the pancakes with mixed fruit, but their omelettes and pulled pork sandwich are also worth a try. Along with the bar and dining room in the front, Café Luluc also has back patio seating, and as one of the busiest places on Smith Street, this is the perfect place to either meet friends or bring kids. Be sure to visit the ATM before you go because Café Luluc only takes cash.

Chez Moi

Chez Moi is a French restaurant with an intimate atmosphere. They offer familiar brunch dishes like eggs benedict with ham, but they also offer traditional French food, including croque monsieur and quiche Lorraine. Try their chouquettes (pastry puffs) or ask about the pastry of the day. For those trying to perk up, Chez Moi offers bottomless Colombian coffee, and for those looking to simmer down, they also make specialty cocktails with bourbon and sparkling wine.

Clover Club

If you’re looking for specialty brunch cocktails, Clover Club is the place to be. Come with a group and get a pitcher of their punch for the table. This rustic, romantic haunt features American food with refined accents. Start with deviled eggs, the bacon tasting, or oysters, which are all customer favorites, followed by one of the main dishes, including scrambled eggs with crème fraîche and poached eggs atop steak. Other options include the ham and fingerling hash for a feel-good meal or the quinoa salad with watermelon for something lighter. Be sure to come back for happy hour!

Watty and Meg

For a casual brunch with quality ingredients, Watty and Meg is a must-visit. This farm-to-table restaurant focuses on providing local and seasonal ingredients on their menu, which is full of mouthwatering brunch options, like mac and cheese with gruyère, quinoa kale and avocado salad, and spicy tuna tartare. They also offer vegetarian huevos rancheros, a customer favorite. Inside, the brick walls and wooden chairs will make you feel at home, and if it’s nice out, the restaurant also has outdoor seating in front.

Verde on Smith

For unlimited drinks in Cobble Hill, Verde on Smith is the place to go. This Italian restaurant offers a variety of dishes for brunch, including traditional eggs benedict and panini, both served with rosemary potatoes and mixed greens. The frittatas and brioche French toast with fresh fruit are also great options and customer favorites. The atmosphere in the main dining room is romantic and intimate, complete with old-fashioned lighting. In the back, the wood patio feels luxurious with black umbrellas and plants surrounding the tables.
