We spend our second week in New York in Park Slope, Brooklyn. We stayed with a good friend. And I must say I really fell in love with Park Slope. It is one of the nicest neighborhoods, not only in New York, but in general. The Prospect Park is in the area, beautiful cafes, restaurants, shops, coffee places, nice town houses.
One of these beautiful cafes/restaurants is Juventino. We went there for breakfast. The place is light and spacious, under the right circumstances the place is sun-drenched. All the products are from local farms and producers, Juventino is also member of Slow Food NYC. Besides their dishes they also offer some chosen products, like maple syrup, Intelligentsia coffee, or olive oil.
For breakfast I chose french toast. It was really mouth-watering. Two thick slices of light bread, soused in eggs, gently roasted on both sides (not too dark), covered with powdered sugar, and some fresh berries. On the side I had some delightful maple syrup. To be honest Juventino served one of the best breakfasts I ever had, and definitely the best fresh toast.
