Sunday in Brooklyn: A Review
Aptly, we visited Sunday in Brooklyn on a gorgeous Sunday morning in Notting Hill. We got there early as we wanted to spend the day exploring the wonderful area. At opening the restaurant only had a couple other groups in there, and was a nice environment to start the day with breakfast at.
We opted to stick with juice instead of cocktails as we’d had drinks the previous couple of days and wanted to fully enjoy the rest of our day! The juices were super yummy and an excellent way to start the day.
For breakfast we opted for the biscuits and gravy – an American classic that neither of us was familiar with. The ‘biscuits’ aren’t what we’d classically call biscuits in the UK – they’re described as a soft dough biscuit – but are obviously savoury. They came served with white sausage gravy, poached eggs, and hot sauce.
We also opted for the ricotta and jam on toast. This was an interesting combination which we haven’t seen before. The savoury nature of both the ricotta and the toast paired perfectly with the sweetness of the jam – leaving for a refreshing breakfast choice.
Neither of us decided to try the infamous pancakes – primarily because one of us really doesn’t like hazelnuts, and the size of the pancakes we’d seen others having were absolutely huge! If you’re not too hungry we’d recommend sharing between 2!
