Cheryl's is a great place for breakfast lunch or dinner. It's quaint and rustic, tucked away right across from the Brooklyn Museum, the Grand Army Plaza Public Library and bucolic Prospect Park. The cafe has its own garden in the back. She serves a familiar blend of old standards with and updated healthy twist. The food is great. Try it.

We went for brunch on Sunday and seemed to hit it just right - 11am - no line. We decided to sit outside which was was lovely on a warm fall day. The only downside was the relatively small table. We each had the prix fixe menu with a cocktail and beverage. Servers were attentive and friendly. Two of us... More

If you want soul food... Go here! Lovely atmosphere, great choice of music and fantastic food. Crispy fried chicken sandwich was unbelievably nice. Prices very reasonable.

Very nice little place. Food is good with a nice selection and very pleasant staff. There is a garden you can sit in when the weather permits. Gets crowded on weekends for brunch but other than those times you can usually get a seat quicky. Great location close to the Botanic Garden, Museum, Library, Prospect Park and much more!

If you're visiting Prospect Park, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, or Brooklyn Museum, this is a great and close-by brunch venue. The brunch deal includes coffee and a mimosa or bloody Mary. The food is down-to-earth and good. The 7-grain bread they use for the toast is out of this world. Service is also very friendly and accommodating.

Tucked away off grand army plaza this is one of the best places we have ever eaten. The menu is simple, unpretentious and well made. The staff were fantastic with the kids and the portions are generous. The only minor issue is that the service is quite slow.

I live a block from Cheryl's and it's the perfect neighborhood spot for brunch. It's a local crowd so the wait usually isn't too long. They have a shady back patio and delicious food. Their brunch specials come with a coffee or tea AND a mimosa or Bloody Mary. Awesome deal and delicious food. Also, their counter is open throughout... More

Low-key Tuesday morning for breakfast. Restaurant had just opened so we had to wait a few minutes for the kitchen. Pleasant service, delicious fare.
