Coffee Cream, Dulce de Leche with Toasted Almonds
Top row: chocolate earl grey, toasted coconut, hibiscus Bottom Row: Cafe Au Lait, Cinnamon Sugar
It’s Sunday morning and the line outside Dough isn’t too long. They are already sold out of one of the specials, Apple Jam. We go with Coffee Cream, Dulce de Leche with Toasted Almonds, Hibiscus, Toasted Coconut, Cafe Au Lait, Chocolate Earl Grey, and Cinnamon Sugar. All good, but my favorite is Cafe Au Lait! Aside from doughnuts, they serve Brooklyn Roasting coffee and also sell their beans.
All the doughnuts here are yeast based (sorry, cake doughnut lovers). According to this post from The New Yorker in June 2013, however, Gerson (owner) is experimenting with cake doughnut recipes. I look forward to my next visit and hope to see some!
A row of chicken and waffles!
Saturday afternoon brunch at Tink’s, they were kind enough to accommodate our party of 9 even though the restaurant is super tiny. On Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30am to 4pm there’s a prix fixe brunch; choice of entree, coffee or tea, and a mimosa for $16. Coffee, food, service, and ambiance were excellent! The quirky decor is adorable and they bring checks out in children’s books (Amelia Bedelia, Goosebumps, cute!).
Chicken & Waffles – multi-grain waffles, pretzel crusted fried chicken, chipotle honey butter
The chicken was great, pretzel crunch was delicious. The waffles were good, a bit on the heavy side due to the multi-grain batter. Combined with the heaviness of the pretzel coating, perhaps a regular buttermilk waffle would have been more appropriate. The chipotle honey butter was like a spicy version of sweet and sour sauce and paired well with the chicken.
Biscuits & Gravy – homemade smothered biscuits, sausage gravy, herbs and sunny side up organic eggs
I enjoyed the slight spicy heat in the gravy. Since I started with the chicken, the dish seemed to lack texture. Overall, it was great, but the chicken was my favorite.
