I had a friend in town this weekend and we decided to ride over on our bikes to Red Hook for brunch at Tini on Van Brunt. I have been there for mid afternoon drinks and snacks but had not had their brunch although it was one of those place, you could just tell would have pretty good brunch. It has a warm atmosphere, everything is made to order in a small, visible kitchen and you are greeted by the smiling owners every time you walk in. We were quickly seated outside and while the menu was largely a bunch of different variations on scrambled eggs, the ingredients seemed fresh and we were hungry enough, it didn't matter. My friend got the eggs with arugula and roasted tomatoes and I got the truffled eggs with parmesan. Each plate was accompanied by buttered hearty, 9 grain bread and roasted potatoes with mustard seeds. Definitely a place to bike to again.
