Eating your way through Crown Heights


You might not expect your new favorite eating destination to be in Crown Heights, but then again, there’s a lot to learn and love about the quaint Brooklyn neighborhood.

Where to eat in Crown Heights

The streets of Crown Heights are brimming with both literal and figurative bursts of flavor. Whether it’s a mom and pop shop boasting the best regional cuisine, or the prestige food hall enmeshed in rows of brownstones, come to Crown Heights with an empty stomach and a sense of adventure.

Berg’n is your best spot for finding something to please everyone. This food hall has a coffee bar, complete with your $5 cups of coffee and latte art and baked goods, alongside a beautiful bar with a beer list spanning IPAs, stouts, lagers, ciders, gluten-free selections, and everything in between. If you’re looking for some delectable eats alongside your many beverage options, there are also vendors providing prime cuts of meat, gourmet salads, and adobo bowls to satiate your hunger.

Coffee and pastries in Crown Heights

Walk a short distance to Bakerie, a modern kosher bakery, filled with the sweet aromas of fresh baked breads, babka, and pastries. Tucked into a quiet corner, Bakerie is the perfect spot to grab a cup of coffee for here and post up with your laptop, or people watch through their large glass windows.

Another favorite for those quiet weekend mornings is Little Zelda. Bring the newspaper – or more realistically, your favorite e-reader – and curl up with a warm scone and hot cup of tea, maybe throw a podcast on and sip on something tasty with your headphones in. The ambience is quintessential Brooklyn here, and it’s impossible not to love.

Have you ever asked yourself, “how good can a burger actually taste?” Prepare to find out at Boeuf & Bun, your staple for delicious burgers and craft beer to match. Pro tip: don’t skip out on dessert. The churro bowl is worth writing home about.

There are many more picturesque bars (we love Olmsted), eateries, coffee shops, and local haunts to dive into in Crown Heights, nestled alongside some of the best places to live in New York City, just come ready to eat, walk, and enjoy.
