A Perfect Saturday in the Neighborhood of North Williamsburg

North Williamsburg has developed into a diverse neighborhood that has great restaurants, bars and entertainment. Plan a day in Brooklyn and hit some of the best places in the burg. Find restaurants, entertainment and coffee shops with Wifi service.

Start your morning off with breakfast on North 5th street at Egg. Egg has become a very popular breakfast restaurant that uses fresh produce from their very own farm in Oak Hill, New York. They offer a brunch, lunch and dinner menu.

The Egg dishes are made to perfection and Eggs Rothko, which is an easy-cooked egg on a slice of Amy’s brioche topped with Grafton cheddar cheese, will not disappoint. If you want to have less eggs, give the biscuits & gravy a shot. Homemade buttermilk biscuits in sawmill gravy made with pork sausage or pan-seared mushrooms.

Egg’s seating fills up quickly so make sure that you get there early.

After breakfast
It’s time to head over to Modca for coffee and surfing the net on their free WiFi.

Modca has some of the best iced coffee and baked goods in Williamsburg. This quiet, dimly lit coffee shop from the owners of coffee shop El Beit has 25 seats, a full Mediterranean menu and a brick oven for baking and making flatbreads. Their big communal tables are great for hanging out while you take advantage of the Wifi access.

Head for lunch and take in the views of the East River and Empire State building on your way to Brooklyn Smorgasburg. Smorgasburg happens every Saturday on the Williamsburg waterfront between North 6th and North 7th St. and is part of the Brooklyn Flea. Sample food from local restaurants and check out fresh produce from the Greenmarket.

Following your afternoon of sampling and walking along the North Pier, its time to head over to the cinema.

Dinner & Movie
The Nitehawk Cinema offers dinner and a movie. Watch the latest first run movies at this Brooklyn theater while enjoying the upscale concession courtesy of chef Saul Bolton the man behind the Michelin star restaurant Saul in Boerum Hill and The Vanderbilt in Prospect Heights.

Their menu comes with a wide variety of foods that include burgers, fish tacos and BBQ Pork Belly steamed buns with spicy hoisin sauce. The popcorn is far from your run of the mill movie popcorn. You can choose from toppings like caramel, parmesan reggiano with garlic butter and traditional butter with sea salt.

No need to leave your seat once you get in the theater. You will have full service by servers that do their best to not obstruct your view while they move about during the movie. Due to New York Laws, alcohol is not permitted in the theater.

Before you head home for the night, stop by the Radegast Hall & Biergarten for a good old night cap of German beer.
