Whenever I'm trying to sell somebody on Brooklyn
Brunch, I take them here. The brunch options are traditional (nothing too out
of the ordinary for a place on Bedford Ave) but everything is very
well-executed and delicious. The Black Bean Cakes are to die for
(especially if you want a non-egg, non-meat brunch option) and the cheddar
grits rival the best you'll find in Tennessee. Be careful of visiting
Sweet Chick when you’re in a rush, however. The service can be fairly slow and
the wait for a table can be up to an hour.
Honestly, I just didn't think Sweet Chick was all that it was cracked up to be. After going once, I never feel the need to go again. I've had much better chicken and waffles at other places. If you go to the one in Williamsburg, you'll be waiting at least an house for brunch on weekends. But, if you're looking for a standard Southern-style breakfast, you can get it here. There are no surprises. I will say, stick to the standard options and don't order the single Mexican-inspired option they have on the menu like my friend did. All in all, a perfectly adequate place with a great location on Bedford in Williamsburg.
I am what you call a believer--a believer that a merry wedding of sweet and savory is the ultimate and unquestionably perfect union. So when you bestow upon me such an immaculate concoction such as Sweet Chick's chicken and waffle--there is no greater bliss that can be experienced by any man.
Their bacon & cheddar Waffle is hands down, the best waffle I've ever had. So good, that I bought a second one to-go, which I later forcibly shoved into my boyfriend's mouth despite his protests that he had just eaten. Their bacon cheddar waffle is moist and fluffy--the most necessary elements in a perfect waffle. Their fried chicken is crispy and succulent--drizzled with their genuine maple syrup, it's enough to make a believer out of any man/woman/reluctant significant others. Wash this merriful union down with one of Sweet Chick's worthy drafts, and if you're still hungry, dig into some of their duck confit sliders--which are tasty, that is--if you aren't tempted to order another waffle.
