These days, it feels like we're spending more time in Brooklyn than in Manhattan. From weeknight workouts at Brooklyn Boulders to weekend trips to Red Hook, we're guaranteed to cross the Brooklyn, Manhattan or Williamsburg Bridge at least twice a week. We love that Brooklyn is so close (either a 30-minute walk or just one subway stop away), but still feels like an escape from our everyday city lives, thanks to the many diverse neighborhoods each offering a unique vibe. Last weekend, we once again walked across the Brooklyn Bridge for Sunday brunch at Colonie in Brooklyn Heights. Opened in 2011 on Atlantic Avenue, the laid-back and friendly atmosphere is perfect for a long meal with friends. But it's the farm-to-table ingredients that steal the show. You'll be amazed at how much you crave the incredibly fluffy pancakes (more like cake than traditional pancakes) with homemade whipped cream, perfectly cooked eggs, and rustic, homemade sausages long after you scrape your plate clean.
I think it's safe to say we've discovered our new favorite brunch spot--Brooklyn and beyond.
