Karloff 04-23-2011

Location: 254 Court St. BK
Time: 1pm
People: MKang, RB, CK and myself

Feelings: Next to one of RB's favorite local spots, American Beer Distributing Company, there is a quintessential Brooklyn eatery that is filled with brunch crowds. Karloff, known for their artisan ice cream and coffee, also serves Eastern European comfort food like latkes, goulash and blintzes.

We sat at their large communal table, and I appreciated that the wait staff was well prepared with a high chair. It was unfortunate that while I enjoyed their friendliness, the service was incredibly slow. We must have waited for our food for about 30 minutes, so if you are hungry, I recommend ordering their Sarsaparilla Vanilla Root Beer Float as MKang did. This float was incredibly tasty and decadent, so much so that the Manhattanite MKang said she would trek to Brooklyn just for this tasty beverage.

The brunch food was overall decent but unspectacular. My vegetarian wrap, MKang's omelet, and RB's "Egg in a Hole" ($6, fried egg inside brioche bread) were something we could easily prepare at home, that is if I ever decide to enter our kitchen.

Their ice cream selections, including the selection of cones, were overwhelming. They even had lavender ice cream for those of you who want your breath to be garden fresh. We chose salted pretzel cones with peanut butter ice cream and banana cookies and cream. The mixture of salty crunch and icy creaminess created an ideal dessert for a warm Spring afternoon.

My neighborhood ice cream favorite, Blue Marble is nearby, but if I want an interesting flavor or cookie cones with a side of delicious coffee, I would definitely go back to Karloff.
