Okay so there’s brunch and there’s brunch, and then there’s a 100% Columbian brunch in at Cafecita Bogata Greenpoint Brooklyn.
Cafecita Bogata offers a 15 dollar brunch that comes with 3 cocktails or tropical fruit juices, unlimited coffee, and a gigantic portion for this gigantic portion of pepper steak and eggs. I ordered the steak and eggs because I really didn’t know what else I wanted. I was pleasantly surprised and then genuinely a-feared that i would be expected to finish the whole plate.
Stewed beef with onions, peppers topped with two poached eggs and a side of rice and beans will crush you in the morning. It seemed like a good idea at the time, however looking back, this decision made me useless for the rest of the day. I’m going to have to try something a bit lighter next time.
The passion fruit tropical juice was decent, and although I didn’t try the sangria, it was clear that one could get very happy here for a reasonable amount of money. Points on the South American music piping in as well, it almost makes you forget that you are in the middle of Brooklyn. Proof.
