April 23 – 25: Weekend Links for Brooklyn Mamas

Choice in Clinton Hill.

Iced coffee and lemon-ginger muffin happiness at Choice in Clinton Hill.

Love to cook, love to go in search of new places to eat. Here’s a weekend round-up of sites to inspire you to do both with the fam.


A guide to sugar bliss in the city; everything from bakeries throughout the boroughs to local dessert news. Sweet. — Sweet Fix NYC

A newsy food blog from the Village Voice. — Fork in the Road

A local food blog with beautiful photography and accessible but delicious recipes for the home cook (the woman behind it’s a mom, too.) — Smitten Kitchen

Family-friendly recipes + tips from a food-happy Brooklyn mama. — One Hungry Mama

Adventures in cake-baking. — A Cake Bakes in Brooklyn

More inspiration! — Babble’s 50 Best Mom Food Bloggers

On the streets:

Choice Market — Thanks to my friend, Maggie, for introducing me to this adorably French cafe-breakfast-lunch-takeout place near Pratt in Clinton Hill. Everything is beautifully presented; there’s shady bench seating out front.

Habana Outpost — Before I had kids, I used to frequent the Soho Cafe Habana location. Now it’s all about the ease of the Brooklyn Outpost. It’s big, bright, super family-friendly, and perfect for a sunny day outing.. They’ve recently opened for their spring and summer season, so get your butt right on over there to Fort Greene.

Ted & Honey Cafe & Market — A sweet little Cobble Hill cafe steps away from a lovely city park. Grab lunch and then park yourself while the kids run around.

What are some of your favorite Brooklyn places to hang, beyond Bubby’s and Two Boots? Do tell!

And happy eating!
