The 5 Best Brunch Spots in the East End
1. Andes Cafe Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This lively South American restaurant gets even livelier at 11 a.m., when blasting live music gets the party started. Come for a menu packed with dishes from every country along the Andes Mountain range, from Venezualen cachapas (sweet corn cakes stuffed with cheese) and Peruvian tamales to Chilean huevos con tomato, a baked egg dish served simply with a French baguette and butter. Weekly specials like roasted suckling pig and bright ceviches never fail to wow.
Don’t forget: The funky eatery is BYO, so bring a bottle of champs ($7 corking fee) or sip on a Peruvian blend from Katz Coffee and fresh juices from Andes’ juice bar.
