St Balmain, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY

HONESTLY’S VERDICT
In a word:  Hip
Food:  Freshly prepared brunch & lunch dishes, erring on the side of healthy…well, apart from the DIY donuts!
Service:  Cheery & attentive
Presentation:  White and blue enamelled tableware, funky mismatched decor
Ambience:   Buzzy little place
Location:  Side street off in the heart of Williamsburg, the Shoreditch of NY
Value for money:  Great, with menu items between $7.50 and $15 (£5 – £10), then add a tip of somewhere between 10% & 20%
Worth a visit?:  Definitely, I’ll certainly be popping back for the Brookes Breakfast Bowl when we’re next in NYC
