Prospect Heights

Tom's Restaurant

782 Washington Ave.
Brooklyn, NY, 11238, United States
TEL: (718) 636-9738

Customers stuck in the long line that often forms outside this Park Slope diner need not worry: staff keeps patient patrons happy with free coffee, orange slices, sausages, and cookies. Opened in 1936, Tom's restaurant has adapted its classic diner fare to the neighborhood’s upscale tastes with brunch-friendly dishes like pumpkin-walnut waffles, lemon ricotta pancakes, and the much-praised crab cakes with eggs. Pair with a cherry-lime rickey, egg cream, or shake from the old school soda fountain and enjoy perusing the paraphernalia, light strings, and stained glass covering the wooden walls.

Insider Tip:

If you're dining in a group, it's best to avoid the extremely busy weekends.
