First time visit and loved the menu range. Bulgogi was superb. Several things I would have liked to try. Service was the best and didn't rush us when it was obviously we were chatting on and on... Cheryl greeted us. Only downsides were small table and awkward (and somewhat ineffective) dealing with outside cold temperatures and poor insulation. Definitely strongly... More

My husband and I split the bulgogi rib eye steak and creole shrimp. Fresh from a trip to S. Korea and living near New Orleans, I think I know what I'm talking about when it comes to these 2 dishes. The steak was the best steak I've ever put in my mouth! Better than anything I had in S. Korea!... More

The food here is plentiful, but the tables are not. Everything was so good and fresh. Not a fancy place by any means, but if you just want good food I'd recommend this place!

We came here for a coffee and scones just before our Brooklyn tour. The service was very good; friendly and helpful. The coffee and scones were both good without being great. Nice stop for coffee.

We were looking for a place to eat after going to a concert at the Brooklyn Museum, and just happened upon this place. Not much to look at from the outside, but cozy on the inside. The staff were great, and served us some homemade cocktails until the kitchen was switched over for dinner. We had 2 salads to start... More

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!
