So on Sunday a friend and I went to grab brunch in the up and coming Dyckman area. Now if you know anything about the city you know that about 5 years ago NO ONE went above 140 for living or food. However like all things, it’s changed thanks to gentrification so there are lots of spots cropping up and it’s the place to live. So my friend recommended a place called papsitos right on the corner of Dyckman and Broadway. They offer a brunch buffet and unlimited mimosas for 1.5 hours. By all outward appearances it seems like a good spot and they offer outdoor seating for summer time. Inside its packed tightly so be prepared not to have much wiggle room. I got the mangu and some fruits from the buffet, while my compatriot got eggs benedict, French toast and some other sides along with mimosas. The food wasn’t all that bad, however they don’t serve COFFEE!!! Like what kind of Spanish food place are you and not serve coffee??? Does your abuela know? So first major drawback, second was personal space allowance.
I’d give this place a 2.5 forks out of 5 as it’s a cute neighborhood spot but the service and presentation needs some serious work. Also they don’t have an official website so you can Yelp them for reviews and photos. It seems that the regular menu fares much better than the brunch, so if you go let me know.
