The best spots for brunch in the Bronx

Sugar & Spice Bake Shop

This quaint City Island bakery is loved for its charming birthday cakes and cupcakes. Specialties like sour-cream pancakes with butter and local maple syrup, the shrimp-and-avocado omelette with herb-dusted fries, and the eggwich with bacon and cheddar are just a few of the highlights coming out of the ever-busy open kitchen.—Cristina Alonso

Tosca Cafe

Some purists swear that all-you-can-eat brunch is the only way to do the midmorning meal; their case is made at this always-busy Italian restaurant in the Bronx. The spread ($29.95 per person, children under 12 $12.95) features an omelette station, Italian bread French toast and a variety of pastas, plus bottomless pours of classic brunch drinks (Bellinis, champagne, mimosas, Bloody Marys).—Cristina Alonso

How can you a peak of Brunch in the Bronx and not mention Giovanni's on the Grand Concourse or Don Coqui in City Island. Both have great all you can eat and bottomless mimosa/bellinis, etc. Your list is definitely not complete!

I will admit that the Bronx has always been the one borough I don't frequent. Perhaps it's because I am not a Yankee fan? Either way, I've always felt like you need a passport to go up there. That being said, I've been hearing some great news about the Bronx over the past couple of years. So guess what? It is time to venture out into the unknown. How can I call myself a New Yorker unless I truly explore every corner of New York City? How can I call myself a NYC real estate professional if I'm going to exclude a borough with such a rich history. I've also come to know that we learn more about a neighborhood by the foods served in it. So it is time to throw on my "dining suit" and head out to the Bronx. Thanks for the list. I can't wait to get started.
