There are quite a few great places to fill your cravings for mimosas and eggs in Ditmas Park nowadays, so how do you decide where to go? With Where To Brunch In Ditmas Park, we tackle all the hard questions like, where are the best cocktails, who has the best classic eggs and bacon, and where is the best place to spend an entire weekend afternoon, so that you will know just where to go when you roll out of bed Sunday morning. Have ideas for where we should go next? Let us know. 

Sometimes you just need a boozy brunch. Maybe you had so much fun the night before, you want to keep it going. Or maybe you just want to start your Saturday night in the middle of the the day. Either way, the best place in the neighborhood to grab a properly alcohol soaked brunch is Sycamore. The bar hosts brunch every Saturday from 1 to 4:30pm. So it’s perfect for those who need some extra z’s.

On the first and third Saturdays, Roswell serves up some delicious southwestern-style items in the bar’s winter lodge in the backyard that will help ease your current hangover or help prevent the next one. Plus you can wash it down with a full bottle of sparkling wine and a glass of orange, peach, or cranberry juice for $20. If Bloody Marys are more your style, they have pitchers, also for $20.

If you want booze in more than just your glass, start off with the delectable Bourbon Sticky Bun ($6). It’s big enough to share and the fully alcohol-soaked. The bourbon actually balances out the sugary sweetness of the sticky bun, making it a tasty, but not overly saccharine treat.

Looking for something a bit more savory? There are two options to choose from. The Breakfast Torta ($8) is a delicious take on the typical breakfast sandwich. Scrambled eggs, cheese, avocado, onions, beans, and a delicious southwest seasoning fills the sandwich, made with a moist sourdough bread. It’s hard to describe how satisfying this sandwich is. But beware, the pickled peppers it comes with are not for the weak-willed.

Your other savory option is a plate of Migas ($10), which is a plate full of scrambled eggs topped with cheese and seasoning and served with beans and a delicious vegetable salsa. It’s a hearty dish that is sure to ease any hangover.

No matter what you order, you won’t go wrong. Plus the informal setting makes it a great place to lounge all afternoon and relax with friends without having to worry about how long its going to take to get a table. Of course, this is also probably not the brunch spot to choose if you are trying to impress someone with a fancy meal.
