Eat This: Brunch at Perch in Park Slope

November 30, 2010 at 11:56 am 1 comment

Fellow brunchers: If you live in Brooklyn and have not had the pleasure of brunching at Perch in Park Slope, it is a must. It was one of the first places that we started going regularly after our move to Brooklyn almost 5 years ago, and we haven’t stopped since. The atmosphere is very laid back, and the decor is bird-themed: bird cups, bird paintings, bird shirts, etc.

It’s overall a small menu, with some basic choices, but everything they do, they do well. We have a number of favorites, several of which we ordered that day. One word of caution; the busier it gets, the more insufferable it is, not to mention to more crowded with strollers it is. So get there early!

We had the lovely Sarah G in town a few weekends ago, and she makes it a point to always go to Perch when she is in Brooklyn. Her breakfast sandwich of choice: The Sam’s Green Eggs combined with Chicken Apple Sausage. A very good decision.

Doug’s choice is a recent favorite: the Sourdough Waffle with Raspberry Butter.

(Side note: Douglas and I tried to make Raspberry butter last weekend. It did not turn out as rich and creamy and delicious as Perch’s. But it was a valiant effort). I had my usual, the Egg & Cheese sandwich, a perfectly cooked frittata with avocado.

We also couldn’t resist getting the Perch toast, which is one of their specialties. It’s basically a strawberry jam sandwich, battered and fried on a panini maker, with maple syrup. A good snack or light breakfast.

Other favorites include their Homemade Granola with Yogurt and Fruit, the Eggs Florentine, and the Huevos Rancheros. But I think we made good decisions. Look at that breakfast spread:
