Best Brunch on Long Island

by Best Of Long Island on January 5, 2010

Who on Long Island doesn’t love brunch? Perfect for hungover Sundays, and equally perfect for a casual get-together with friends. Really, it’s the best!

Long Islanders Voted Milk & Sugar Cafe in Bay Shore The Best Brunch On Long Island!

Milk & Sugar Cafe
49 W. Main St.
Bay Shore

Like the name suggests, this place is pretty sweet. And we don’t mean that in surfer parlance. Milk & Sugar Café is one of the Best Brunch spots because of their keen attention to detail for each customer that walks in the door. Any place can serve brunch, but few do so as thoroughly, deliciously and within such a classy, comfortable Victorian ambiance. It’s brunch the way it was meant to be, complete with omelette and carving stations, fruits, cheeses, bagels, pastries, bacon, sausage, home fries, waffles, pancakes, French toast, mimosas, bloody Marys and more. See you Sunday!

2nd Place – Black Forest Brew Haus. 2015 New Hwy., Farmingdale. 631-845-4715.

Here you will find a huge variety of German-American cuisine. Their famous soup specials feature a different soup of the day choice depending on the day. Located in Farmingdale, they provide loaded pancakes, calamari, and wings just to name a few, all for a good price.

3rd Place – Hemingway’s American Bar & Grill. 1885 Wantagh Ave., Wantagh. 516-781-2700.

This location offers grilled steaks and wines. It is very comfy, with a main dining room and a fireplace upstairs.

I completely disagree. I have never been to a brunch on Long Island that equalled The Garden City Hotel. The fresh lobster, the seafood, the hot food, five star pastries and unlimited mimosas and Bloody Marys, all delicious and in a beautifully appointed setting. In a word, it is superb! It rivals the brunch at Manhattan’s Plaza Hotel.

I don’t know how “milk & sugar” was rated no. 1. the food was a 5 at best. there was only one waitress handling the beverages and we weren’t offered any mimosas or bloody mary’s. the table was incomplete…no spoons at any of the settings. i will definitely not go there again. i do agree with lawyerdeb, the garden city hotel does have THE BEST brunch but it is pretty pricey at $65, but like everything else, you get what you pay for.
