Peeps in Brooklyn have no idea how spoiled they are by the number of great spots to just drop in for a beer or a meal. We visit regularly to see family, and discovering new eateries is always fun. This last weekend, our kids recommended Alchemy for breakfast. Sort of typical shotgun style building, nice bar, a row of booths and, in back, some smallish tables. We arrived a bit after 10, enjoyed an absolutely great breakfast. Mine was hash browns, topped by fried eggs topped by nicely sliced gravlax with capers and red onions. I "had to" also try the Bangers (deep fried link sausage, but in half and served in a small ramekin full of maple syrup. I mean, really. They were insanely good. The egg dish was also, nicely prepared and tasty, top to bottom .. My wife had the Toad in a Hole, extra thick sourdough (2 inches thick), scooped out center, dropped egg in the hole, surrounded by a nice sauce. Outstanding coffee and attentive service. It was the highlight of our trip. Go, you'll be happy.
