Craving brunch? Go to Brooklyn Street Local

COME IN: Whether you’re fueling up for a busy day ahead or indulging in a leisurely brunch, Brooklyn Street Local is your go-to destination for the perfect breakfast experience.
(Katie Hamilton )

Right on Michigan Avenue in Corktown lies a small place called “The Brooklyn Street Local”. They are open Wednesday through Friday 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Walking in, I first saw how organized they were since the restaurant was quite small. Even when I online-rsvp’ed on the waitlist, I had to wait a bit—for those who want to visit, make sure you get on the waitlist on their website before you go in. Something else I saw that was unique was to order on your phone at the table like an open tab and the food comes to you, with no waiters involved since the place is small. They also have brown t-shirts and bags that they sell with their logo on them.

The menu itself was positive, with lots of brunch choices. My personal favorite was their Impossible Burger.

It was so warm and juicy and even tasted like meat. It’s one of the best I have tasted and really enjoyed. The service was efficient and fast and I appreciated them teaching us how to order when they were packed.

Another one of my favorites was the Brooklyn Street Sunrise drink. It was made out of orange juice, soda water, grenadine and citrus. The flavors of the drink exceeded my expectations.

The drink was sweet but just enough that it didn’t overpower anything. The prices of the place were fairly affordable.

The burger was $7 and it filled me up, and the sunrise drink was $4 and they served it in a big glass. The big burger for only $7 and a large drink for $4 are very reasonable for me. I liked the overall setting, it was seven out of ten for being clean and fast but a small place for such a busy restaurant. The food, on the other hand, I would rate ten out of ten exceeding my expectations. I would recommend it to anyone who loves brunch or overall going out to eat with family and friends, however something to remember they can’t fit parties over six unless the group is okay with splitting up. Other than that, my trip to “The Brooklyn Street Local” was a success and I can’t wait to go again.
