Bottom Line: Get here early to score one of the 6 or so tables, forget your diet, and don't expect good service.
Food: We enjoyed our two dessert-for-brunch meals. A lot. The menu has over 900 items so it's impossible to tell you everything, but what we didn't get to try that looked amazing were the pancake sandwiches: full-size pancakes with an egg dish in the middle... next time! See the below for images and descriptions of our Egypt Slutty Cakes and Vanilla French Toast.
Drink: No booze here, kids. But the fresh OJ was delish and the iced coffee was actually better than most (only whole milk by the way).
Atmosphere: Not much to say here except there isn't much of an atmosphere. While the teeny tiny 'inside' (where the door to the kitchen is) has a nice feel and NY pride (Giants and METS stuff on the walls), the main seating area is literally in the hallway of the market next to an empty storefront. Again, delicious food but nothing much to look at.
