Mimi's Hummus

Ditmas Park

The lively stretch of Ditmas Park that’s home to local favorites Picket Fence and the Farm on Adderley also boasts this casual Middle Eastern café. True to its name, Mimi’s offers five kinds of the chickpea spread, some fortified with add-ins like ground beef or velvety mashed fava beans, and the chefs are known to accommodate requests from picky eaters. Don’t miss out on the brunch menu: Israeli, Moroccan and Iraqi staples include flaky spinach and cheese burekas (savory pastries) and hearty shakshuka merguez—a tomato stew rich with sunny-side-up eggs and spicy lamb sausage.
