Foursquare Tips

  • Venture to Fort Greene to see what NY Mag has been raving about. Order the ham and gruyere bread pudding! (ps: BAM is within walking distance if you want to catch a movie)
  • The WiFi password is the phone number (no dashes)
  • Make sure you come to this hot spot to over pay and under eat. Get the kale - you're bound to get at least one full leaf!
  • The popular cheddar and smoked ham scramble is a perfect mix of flavors. Other food on the menu, like ranchero eggs and pinto beans in a skillet, could use a little more flavor and spice.
  • Everyone goes crazy for the breakfast, but they actually have a FANTASTIC dinner menu as well. The fried chicken is to die for.
  • Try the Cheese Grits
  • The candied bacon is as good as everybody says, but if you're having it as an appetizer you could easily split it between three or more people.
  • We like the migas- a scramble of eggs with cheese, pico de gallo, red or green hot sauce, shredded cheddar, and leftover tortillas, usually fried into chips
  • Wish the ice cream cart was out more often. It's amazing.
  • Get the candied bacon. Salty and sweet. Sooo good.
  • Don't get the kale... It isn't cooked. Brunch is so so, good bloody marys!! Slow service, good music. Medium meh...
  • salted caramel ice cream (no pretzels) from the cart.
  • Eggs Benedict on a biscuit was great. Sadly the fried green tomatoes were tasteless.
  • Order the mac & cheese, candied bacon, & burger (the buns are perfect, buttery brioche buns). Watch as all the diners around you turn around to find out what smells - & tastes! - so ridiculously good.
  • The fried chicken & waffles are great, as is the fried green tomato Benedict -- and the doughnut trio is a can't-miss!
  • General Greene Burger is simple but phenomenal! This is our go to spot for dinner these days.
  • Ice Cream was Great
  • Enjoy your meal (get the mac and cheese to start) and then, if the weather is nice hit up their ice cream stand outside for your walk home.
  • Awesome food and courteous service!! Not only the breakfast is amazing, it is great at any time.
  • Maple syrup Old Fashioned!
