Really enjoyed breakfast here at the Brooklyn Street diner. Menu varied and crowd and staff very friendly. Outside space must be pleasant, weather permitting.

An amazing little local spot. I enjoyed the Hangover Breakfast with Poutine Fries, which was outstanding. My wife had the Daily omelette special which she really enjoyed. All local ingredients, great vibe.
