At Diner you'll experience one of the best brunches in Williamsburg, and in a unique, old school atmosphere. Diner, as its name implies, is an original by the Kullman Dining Car company and goes back to the 1920's. It's worn-in and comfortable as a result. Diner is a small place made mostly of wood, has vintage tiles on the floor, and an arched, shiny-white, low-hanging ceiling. Sitting at the bar is a great spot if you are solo, and the booths are ideal if you are brunching with a group of four.WHAT TO EAT
The ever-changing menu is handwritten daily on receipt tape. It's a quirky but nice touch reflecting the original feel of the place. Generally, anything they put on toast is always good. Try the Pumpkin Toast. It comes with a Pumpkin Spread on Garlic Rubbed Grilled Country Bread, Pecorino and Sliced Balsamic Mushrooms. It may not sound like those things go well together, but surprisingly it's great. Another go-to option is the Pastrami Hash with Two Eggs, Pickled Mustard Seeds and Spinach.
WHAT TO DRINK
For something unique, try the Right Hand. It's made with House Made Ginger Syrup, Putemes Vermouth, Beer and Lemon. It sort of tastes like a refreshing cider.
