Chez Ma Tante


Those who know me well know that my favorite meal of the day is breakfast/brunch, and I will wake up 30-45 min earlier just to cook myself a nice, hearty breakfast to kickstart my day. With that being said, I do enjoy trying out different brunch spots on the weekends as a sweet little treat to myself. Thank you, self. :) 

Although they opened their doors in May of 2017, it has since received such wonderful reviews, and continues to stand out in the NYC sea of restaurants. I'll have to make it back to this French-Canadian Bistro in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, for dinner because I bet it's equally amazing. 


Kyle + I arrived at 90 CALYER ST at about 11:10, and surprisingly, there was only one couple in front of us in line. I was thinking "YES! We will for sure get a table." HAH! I was wrong. More people started to come and wait leading to the doors opening at 11:30am. After we informed this hostess that we did not have a reservation, she kindly told us that the couple in front of us took the last available seats in the restaurant for those without reservations. I was looking around this empty room and I just chuckled under my breath because honestly every table was vacant. But anyways, we just took a seat at the bar, made friends with the bartender, and proceeded to order our food. We ordered the pancakes, which were just unbelievably delicious. I actually don't like pancakes too much, but that didn't apply here. BUT oh my gosh LET. ME. TELL. YOU. this sausage egg and cheese will change your world. Seriously, I was honestly speechless and didn't even want to split it with Kyle (typical). The sausage was just perfectly cooked with this soft scrambled egg, topped with pickled chiles and cheese. It just all melted in your mouth. Their garlick-y aioli on the sandwich is a game changer, and so we ordered the fries as well after that. I'm actually drooling.

P.S. Brunch is only offered on the weekends. Oh and make a reservation :)
