So I've lived here for over a month and my boyfriend lived in the area before that, so I have an idea of where to go for what but I want your take on whats good, when to go and what to try.

Here's what I'm looking for:

Baked goods- like cupcakes and scones and cookies. I don't want to have to haul all the way over to cheeks and then get attitude. And i have a mean sweet tooth.
Bread- Do any of the local spots make something like Brioche? My french toast isn't the same with polish rye.
Burger- Dumont' Burger's amazing but too far and too fancy sometimes. Have heard that Triple Decker is Decent and greasy.
Amazing French Fries- I think the one's at Gpt Coffee are quite tasty, others?
Salad- I'm into the type they make at Westville. Mesculin Greens, grilled salmon, dressing. Simple, flavorful, filling. Is this asking too much?
Meat Markets- what to order?
Sandwiches- decent deli?

Here's what I've got so far.

Champion Coffee- is v. good if a bit far. Love the people who work there, and like the atmosphere.
Uro Cafe- Makes the best Latte around, better than gimme. And its consistent. And oh so strong.

Ashbox- makes some fine soups, haven't tried their baked goods but hope they're good.

Greenpoint Coffee House- Love their eggs haven't had much else.

Amarin- Its Easy.

Lamb and Jaffy- Have only been for breakfast, which was decent but didn't knock any socks off, and have been meaning to try for byob dinner.

Brooklyn Label- Every time I go I am less impressed than before but I loved them at first...

Queen's Hide Away- Delicious.

Peter Pan- I've enjoyed their doughnuts (the cinnamon cruller is a fave) and see people
eating egg sandwiches all the time. Are they yummy?

Can't wait for the feedback!
