    Sweet Melissa's: Tea Time in Cobble Hill

    Step inside for immediate relaxation

    You must take time to relax! The perfect place is a cozy space with delicious, freshly made pastries and hot or cold tea, coffee, other lovely liquids...

    You can either imagine yourself as a character from Austen, sitting in the main pillow-strewn area, and sipping tea. Alternatively, you can retire to the garden (weather permitting) to admire the greenery, soak in some air and sun, and sip your drink.

    The macaroons are amazing...and a full tea with sandwiches and cakes is served in the afternoon.

    It's located at 276 Court Street. Take the F/G train to Carroll Street.

    Breakfast at the Donut House

    More than donuts...in fact, never had one there

    If you want to get away from too much hipness, this is a good option for breakfast, brunch, or lunch. This is a fast, consistent, basic and delicious diner. It's wicked cheap, and the clientele is Carroll Gardens, with only a sprinkling of "just rolled out of bed from a long night of something or other."

    Great toast! Great coffee! Great eggs!

    314 Court Street in Carroll Gardens
