Some of the best breakfast you can find in Brooklyn is here via the Tchoup Shop, a pop-up inside the bar that apparently serves late night and snacks now, too. I totally dig the New Orleans–style breakfast plates that include grits, which I love, eggs, some sort of perfectly cooked meat (a manageable slab of fatty pork belly!) or veggies (chewy mushrooms)...it's the best, and great hangover food. Honestly, I like brunch here so much more than I do the bar at night, but Heavy Woods is a great bar to go to if you want a more low-key night out or a night cap.
Part-time coffee place, part-time bar, full-time awesome. I could see myself hanging here all day: grabbing a coffee & a book to relax for the morning' - then ya know, switching to more boozy libations later in the day. The decor is adorable - theirs lots of mixed wood textures that somehow work well together with kitschy items decorating the front bar area. The back lounge area is black & white and seems primed for a weekend dance party.
Happy Hour is Mon - Fri from 2 - 7pm, which gets you a dollar off draft, dollar off well, and discount on select wines. Not bad, and if I really were to camp out here for the day, I'd be pretty stoked about starting happy hour at 2pm. I didn't love the wine or the cider draft we got, but the selection is decent and their house Guyana cocktail is on point.
We got a few bites of food to sample and were impressed. My friend and I shared the crab cakes which were damn good, albeit a bit small. I got the beet salad, which was also pretty yummy. IMHO, the real winner was the pecan pie dessert - so chocolaty and nutty but not too rich. I'll be day dreaming of that pie, until my next visit - hopefully soon!
