Eggs Benedict, mimosas, pass out, repeat. Starting to lose your appetite for the typical Sunday morning bottomless brunch? Whether you want an endless selection of bagels or are looking to eat your Wheaties in style, here are some less traditional ways to start your weekend out right.
1. Lazer Zoo


Talk about the breakfast of champions! Lazer Zoo at Hudson Terrace has combined brunch, laser tag and a world-class lineup of DJs to create a Sunday morning utopia. French toast sticks, tuna tartar tacos and omelette sliders can all be found on the menu, but one side note – all that delicious grub should probably be eaten after the intense game of tag in order to avoid a massive vom-fest. This special brunch only happens once a month so be sure to check out their website ahead of time for more info.

2. Smorgasburg, at Williamsburg and Prospect Park

If you’re that friend who’s never satisfied with the menu options, then you have to check out Smorgasburg. Come hungry because over 100 vendors will be dishing out tacos, kebabs, po’ boys, cheese cakes, donuts and just about everything else under the sun. Come, eat and conquer, every weekend (Saturdays in Williamsburg and Sunday in Prospect Park) through September.

3. Brunch Bounce Dance Party

Yeah, food is sweet and all, but let’s get back to the party. Bushwick’s Lot 45 and Brunch Bounce have created an all-out bad-ass breakfast party with electro DJs and a unique twist on morning cocktails like the Bloody Hangover and a sweet Wycoff grapefruit vodka concoction. Celebrities like Major Lazer have been known to join in on the fun, so come take your breakfast with a side of good vibes.

4. Brooklyn Food Tours

Counting calories? Burn some lbs. between baked goods on one of these two Williamsburg walking food tours. The guided tours also stop in a number of local art galleries and designer shops, so you can be sure you’re getting the best of what the neighborhood has to offer. 

5. Opera Brunch at Onegin Restaurant


Located in the heart of New York’s Greenwich Village, Onegin has the finest Russian Fusion cuisine that Manhattan has to offer. This lavish eatery will transport you to the 19th century with an air of elegance resonating from the interior design to the extraordinary Russian cuisine, not to mention the world-class opera you can enjoy right before dessert! This is definitely a unique experience so check out more info here.
