My husband asked me where I want to go tomorrow for Mother's Day. I have always loved Annies but don't get there often living in Brooklyn, working full time and being a mom. Last time I was there was last Mother's Day actually and I just read that they closed in January when the building was sold. I read some posts about brunch in Brooklyn and tried to check out a lot of them online -- In fact I checked out all of the ones listed in this post: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/304644.
The one that looks the most promising as a subsititute to Annies is The Windsor Cafe. I am looking for good food at a decent price. I am still in mourning over never having the oatmeal at Annies again. Of course I can't forget that there were shells in my eggs benidict last Mother's Day but I will say when they found out they were apologetic and tried to make up for it as best they could.
So I would like to know what others think about the Windsor Cafe or if they have other suggestions in the same vien as Annies, preferably in Brooklyn (we are in Bensonhurst but we do drive or we can take the train).
