Extensive menu, brunch 10-4 everyday, great food, pleasant atmosphere (can get noisy) and great service. Pancakes came out hot and the eggs benedict were the best we've had. Definitely will be back!

This is a great spot for an Israeli breakfast. I especially love their "Shashuka", it is well made, delicious and served with hummus and warm pita. We also split a huge potato pancake served with labanah, a kind of Israeli sour cream. The coffee is always good and the service is always friendly and professional. The restaurant itself is a...

So I see most reviews are for the brunch, so I thought I'd let you all know the dinner is also superb, Went here a few weeks ago & the place was almost empty which I was happy about bc I wanted to enjoy a quiet Sunday evening with friends I hadn't seen in awhile. The food was so yummy,... More

A wonderful small restaurant which is actually bigger than you think and can accommodate larger groups (up to 8-10). Small plates, full meals, eclectic variety of Moroccan dishes for meat eaters, fish eaters and vegetarians. We had so many dishes and loved the Miriam Hummus, handmade pita, Sizzling Shrimps, Chicken Shwarma, Cauliflower Steak, Kadaif Wrapped Shrimp, and Vegetable Couscous. And... More

This place is always busy for brunch and I know why... the selections was just right. It was different , it was unique. Every dish was good. I did know that this would be a thing.

We visited for brunch and a takeout dinner during our holiday stay in Park Slope. We visited the restaurant for brunch and were pleasantly surprised with the menu and how good the food was. We tried several things, including the Israeli breakfast and soup of the day and they were fantastic. A few nights later we order a dinner for... More

One of the best breakfasts we've ever had--super fresh ingredients and a really creative menu. Try the Israeli breakfast with a side of beef sausage. The side dishes are unusual and perfectly prepared. We went two or three times during a week-long stay in Brooklyn.

Comfy, but crowded, Saturday brunch...6 of us with multiple dishes, and lots of warm pita with hummus...many interesting Israeli and other choices...all tasty and filling... come at the wrong time, however, and you will wait...and wait... for a seat...

A group of 8 went to Miriam's before The Hard Nut at BAM. Easy location for Barclay Center too. We started with 8 mezze plates. Waitress was very helpful guiding the selection. 3 couples split either a cous cous or an entré. I had the lamb roast special. Very tender and flavorful. Unfortunately we didn't have time to try deserts.... More
