The sign outside the shop says ‘Antiques,’ but they offer brunch as well. HôM Bay Ridge combines the best of both worlds: shopping and eating. You can shop around for tabletop decorations, mirrors, accent furniture, wine bottle holders, and other accessories. After shopping, feel free to stop by their cafe and try their red velvet pancakes, green eggs and ham, and the South Pole burger.

With their recent expansion in 2009, the Cebu Bar and Bistro now has 100 additional seats, a lounge area with a fireplace, and a more intimate bar area.
