Neighborhood Treasure – In Park Slope yuppiedom where brunch increasing feels Manhattan, Cousin John's (or CJ's) is a no frills treasure. The fresh bake croissants are phenomenal. Try the whole wheat. The french toast and the pancakes are delectable. The egg dishes and omelettes are awesome. On the weekends, they get you started with a homemade chocolate bread served with a cranberry spread. The staff is friendly and prompt. If you sit upstairs you have the joy of watching real baking pros in action. Its also very cheap. Two people can get out of there for $20-$25 tip included and eat like royalty.
The Richest Cakes – I travel from Pennsylvania to get the Black Forest Cake here! It is THE BEST! Well worth the trip. So rich and delectable and reasonably priced.
BEST STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE IN TOWN!!! – I TRAVEL ALL THE WAY FROM THE BRONX TO BROOKLYN FOR THEIR CAKE. I FOUND THIS BAKERY FROM A FRIEND THAT LIVES IN D.C. EVER SINCE THEN, I'VE BEEN LOYAL TO THIS BAKERY AND ALWAYS RECOMMEND IT TO FRIENDS. TRY THEIR STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE WITH FRESH BUTTER CREAM FROSTING AND FRESH FRUIT TOPPING. THE STRAWBERRIES ARE THE LARGEST YOU HAVE EVER SEEN. TRUST ME! A+++ BAKERY IN NYC. THIS IS WHAT NY IS ABOUT... WAY BETTER THAN JUNIOR'S. THE CHOCALATE MOUSSE IS VERY, VERY RICH...GOT MILK?? WELL WORTH THE TRIP.
Writer – They have the best cakes and cookies. One of the few places to get a good cup of coffe at a decent price, not likeI the over price chains all over the city. also got my wedding cake from them. Great price, not like those over price bakeries. Why should wedding cake cost so much. Cousin Johns Bakery and Cafe has the best prices. They coustom make your cake without over chargeing. Try their fresh berry cakes YUMMY...
Doctor – Great Brunch! Small place but is worth it. One of the few places where the kitchen is open and you can see the bakers making, all the goodies. They have a wide array of pies during the holiday season. Also one of the few places where you can get flourless cakes and sugarless cakes. Everything thing there is sinfully good.
Cousin Cuisine – Nice breakfasts, muffis, cakes to order and pignoli nut pastries. Gets a trifle crowded so think about takeout rather than sitting at the claustrophobic tables to enjoy your cuppa.
