Went there because I had read good comments on this place for the brunch. I don't find them justified: the spinach and cheese omelet with home fries (it's just a kind of boiled potatoes, it's not fried) wan't tasty, pretty flavorless... I had the supreme...More

Enjoyed breakfast at Tom's on a Saturday morning before visiting the Brooklyn Museum. We had just a short wait before getting a table. Seating is fairly limited, and it's pretty tight, but no one seemed to mind. The pancakes looked wonderful, but both of us...More

Really good restaurant. Only $26 for 3 pancakes and the Tom’s wrap. Tasty and big portion (the pancakes were so huge). The Tom’s wrap is a little bit spicy. The place is typical american and the waiters are really kind. Place to eat.

Heard a lot about this place. Raves about the pancakes and lines out the door for breakfast and brunch, so when recently in the borough we made a point of stopping in at an off hour when it wasn't so crowded to give it a...More

Our son lives in Brooklyn and really enjoys this place especially for breakfast. Which they serve all day. We actually had lunch but one person had breakfast with the best looking bacon I had seen in a while. Wife had a spinach and egg omelet...More
