Aunt Suzie’s in Park Slope is a unique kind of place. Long before it came to be known as Dyke Slope and even more before it came into its current incarnation as guerilla-baby-stroller-mecca, Park Slope had Suzie’s. Serving Italian fare for those who are too lazy to prepare it themselves at home nad offering up a decent brunch featuring made to order belgian waffles and a buffet of typical breakfast far: eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes etc.
The decor as you can gather from the pictures is eclectic: part tag sale find; part your grandmother’s living room complete with c. 1950s photos of an assembly of photos from different families.
The service, at least for the brunch, is a bit brusque but that should be expected. When you walk, you are greeted with “Have you been here before? Do you know how this works?” if you come for the brunch. Here’s the selection my friend Justin got:
I got the belgian waffle with peaches on top:
Its not fancy but its delicious, filing and cheap. The server in the red is making the waffles. The all-you-can-eat brunch price (currently $15.90) includes your choice of glass of champagne, wine or beer. You can also order mixed drinks such as the mimosa and others but these are not included in the all-you-can-eat brunch price.
