They have a lot to offer in here and they certainly keep the freshness intact with all of their breads. I love that they also have so many other things in here other than pastries.

My wife got our wedding Cake from Cousin John's. Lets just say, it was absolutely wonderful. On such an important day, everything needs to be top-notch, the band, the gown and of course the cake. Cousin John's fufilled that notion 100%. Thank you so much!! I highly recommend Cousin John's Bakery!!!

I had my wedding this past weekend as was recommended by a friend and it turned out awesome! I gave them photos two weeks ago and it turned out better than I could have expected. My wife loved it and it was the centerpiece at the reception! Thanks again!

Cousin John's we great 20 years ago - Sunday Brunch had a long wait. I still like to have lunch there once in a while, listen to the jazz and look at the small art shows they put up. Their pastries and cakes aren't what they used to be and I don't buy them any more. I do recommend the stuff from the kitchen, though.

Cousin John's is a longtime standby for coffee and pastries in Park Slope, but it seems to be coasting on its reputation. Some favorites like the almond croissants are still pleasing, but the pastries are often dry or overbaked, and the coffee doesn't compete with a lot of the newer offerings in the neighborhood. A friendly place and decent, but there are better options these days.

I have read these reviews, clearly these are friends of the owner. I have only had the red velvet cupcake and it is horrible. I am a baker, and I test bakeries all over the world. I will try another item just to verify what I tasted. The red velvet cupcakes are awful. They are bitter, you can not taste the sugar and/or coco that sould be in them. The cream cheese icing should have butter and sugar. This seemed like simply some cream cheese smeared on top. NOT GOOD. Again, I will test them out again, but thus far, they have a way to go.

I am a longtime fan. Out of all the many, many times I've been here the food is wonderful. First of all, Cousin John?s small size & long line are part of the appeal. It's an old-fashioned bakery with none of the presumptuousness to be found. The Red Velvet cupcake is delicious. The strawberry shortcake is perfect. I love it because of its old school charm, great friendly staff, and delicious food

In Park Slope yuppiedom where brunch increasing feels Manhattan, Cousin John's (or CJ's) is a no frills treasure. The fresh bake croissants are phenomenal. Try the whole wheat. The french toast and the pancakes are delectable. The egg dishes and omelettes are awesome. On the weekends, they get you started with a homemade chocolate bread served with a cranberry spread. The staff is friendly and prompt. If you sit upstairs you have the joy of watching real baking pros in action. Its also very cheap. Two people can get out of there for $20-$25 tip included and eat like royalty.

I TRAVEL ALL THE WAY FROM THE BRONX TO BROOKLYN FOR THEIR CAKE. I FOUND THIS BAKERY FROM A FRIEND THAT LIVES IN D.C. EVER SINCE THEN, I'VE BEEN LOYAL TO THIS BAKERY AND ALWAYS RECOMMEND IT TO FRIENDS. TRY THEIR STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE WITH FRESH BUTTER CREAM FROSTING AND FRESH FRUIT TOPPING. THE STRAWBERRIES ARE THE LARGEST YOU HAVE EVER SEEN. TRUST ME! A+++ BAKERY IN NYC. THIS IS WHAT NY IS ABOUT... WAY BETTER THAN JUNIOR'S. THE CHOCALATE MOUSSE IS VERY, VERY RICH...GOT MILK?? WELL WORTH THE TRIP.

Great Brunch! Small place but is worth it. One of the few places where the kitchen is open and you can see the bakers making, all the goodies. They have a wide array of pies during the holiday season. Also one of the few places where you can get flourless cakes and sugarless cakes. Everything thing there is sinfully good.

Nice breakfasts, muffis, cakes to order and pignoli nut pastries. Gets a trifle crowded so think about takeout rather than sitting at the claustrophobic tables to enjoy your cuppa.
