5. George’s Luncheonette

Back in Brooklyn, George’s Luncheonette on 2157 Utica Avenue is one of the boroughs best kept secrets. This tiny local hot spot does not dabble in vintage decor. Instead, what they do offer is exactly what you would expect from an authentic 1950s luncheonette, which means great service and great food for little money. They are a family owned business has been serving the Mill Basin community for 45 years and their breakfast menu particularly shines. A good place for a quick but plentiful bite on the go.
