    There's better brisket in this city, but the restaurant's specialty—Kansas City burnt ends—are great. Just get there early before they sell out. Good beer selection, too. -- Serious Eats via Foursquare

    You can depend on this Motrealithic café to turn out food stunningly beautiful and stunningly delicious, with colorful flourishes worthy of a Mondrian or Kandinsky. [Eater 38 Member] -- Eater via Foursquare

    This is my favorite quick breakfast destination in the neighborhood for a nice egg sandwich (there's a creative selection) and coffee. A gem on Greenpoint's North Pole. -- Evan via Foursquare

    For a place with the same name as a Black Sabbath song, they really don't play much Black Sabbath. That being said, it's pretty good coffee. -- Marc Mayer via Foursquare

    Ok burger. Too sweet. Ate the double. American cheese was too sweet. Russian dressing was too sweet. Everything was sliding around inside too. Bun was remarkable, really held up well throughout. -- Christopher B via Foursquare
