“Roberta’s literally put Bushwick on the map: before Roberta’s very few people were venturing out to this corner of Brooklyn. Opened in 2008, Roberta’s still has the best pizza around. They don’t take reservations and you should be prepared to wait. Our favorite item on the menu is the Bee Sting Pizza, featuring spicy soppressata with a drizzle of honey.”

“These are some seriously sought after donuts. You'll find Dough donuts in cafes across the city but they are made right here in Bed Stuy! Seriously good donuts. ”

“They do much more than sweets, but it's the sweets that you'll get in line for. There's wild Maine blueberry pancakes and caramelized banana French toast for breakfast, plus loads of pie, cake, and milkshakes. But, if you insist on eating real protein (as fans of the bakery did years ago, pushing the owners to expand to other meals), then you won't be disappointed. Go for the fried chicken!”

“Best bread, pastries and breakfast sandwich! We recommend getting the grilled ham egg sandwich the way they make it with their special sauce - it’s awesome. It is a staple here in town and a must visit.”

Donut Shop

“Donuts that are truly unsurpassed by any other donut or donut shop I have ever been to in my life-- and I'm a life-long donut fanatic! Bettter than krispy kreme's which I loved as a kid. Huge PLUS: They also just happen to be vegan! The most popular flavor is the jelly donut with peanut butter icing and a chocolate drizzle, (my own personal favorite as well!) But they have other unique flavors that are fun to try such as: Rosemary butter flavor, Blueberry french toast, Pistachio, Raspberry with oat flakes, Strawberry, and more! Truly a Must-have!”
