only in brooklyn
yesterday (or a few weeks ago), we took a trip to williamsburg, brooklyn (aka the most hipster-y hipster place that i know in all of new york). if i could live anywhere else in the city, it would be here.
first, we headed to breakfast; to a spot you’ve most likely have already spotted on this blog.
any place with a choice of steel cut oatmeal for brunch is bumped up to the top of my favorites list. it just so happened that reynard is one of them, and i got just that. mmmm, creamy steel cut oatmeal with sautéed apples and cinnamon. even though we could easily make this at home, it was completely worth every penny.
after our beautiful, sun-lit breakfast, we made our way to the heart of williamsburg, where we visited a few of my favorite spots:
- mast brother’s chocolate factory (where you become engulfed with the delicious smells of cocoa beans)
- the art library (home of brooklyn’s very own sketchbook project)
- handsome dan’s candy (my favorite cute candy shop ever)
- bird (where fig trees are everywhere)
i think i will be coming here again, to explore new places. until then, stay tuned.
