Had lunch with a friend who loves the brunch here. The crabcake appetizer I got was great, but my salad with grilled chicken wasn't. Her steak and eggs looked good, but I didn't try them. There are better place in the 'hood for the same prices.

I ate there today and it was excellent. Service was fine unlike other reviewers have posted. My fiance and I recommend the Mangu con huevos and the Tortilla with eggs, cheese, peppers chorizo (I forget what it is called.) Both of our meals were dynamite. I'm ready to return - the french toast ordered by the neighboring table looked mouthwatering!

Having lived in the neighborhood for over a year and seen the extra-long weekend lines, my boyfriend and I figured this would be a pretty good choice for Sunday brunch. After a 15 minute wait (not bad at all for a busy Sunday), we were seated...........and totally ignored for 1/2 hour by our waitress who was seen chattting with a friend and dancing at the end of the bar. After waiting...and waiting...and waiting for more than 30 minutes, we informed the host that we'd be leaving; he shrugged and didn't really seem to care.

Pros: Garage door storefront means al fresco dining...assuming your waitress ever shows up

Cons: Dancing waitresses, apathetic host/manager, really expensive-looking coffee (though I never actually got to drink any)

After reading all the great reviews about their cafe con leche and latin eggs benedict I was looking forward to brunching in the restaurant. Initial impressions satisfied- lots of people in a fun inviting atmosphere. First disappointment was the Mimosa, made with canned orange juice. Second was the cafe con leche- a weak, watery version of what it should be. And it was downhill from there. My poached eggs with a shrimp hashbrown underneath were cold, the hashbrown was obviously cooked way before and put ina microwave. My friend's Latin Eggs Benedict were also cold, tough and lacking flavor. A fried piece of potato that went with our meals was tough and rubbery. There was nothing redeeming about the food..I'm now curious who wrote all the good reviews about it..hmm...

Brunch and dinner are both great at this casual, authentic, friendly garage-door restaurant. The food is delicious and the people who work there are just cool people. (I just hope they get the AC pumpin' a little stronger soon!)

I keep returning to this spot for their brunch menu. I love the Latin Eggs Benedict and on the rare occasion that I deviate from that, I get the very tasty salmon omelette. They make a great Cafe con Leche, and their brunch cocktails are good too. The only downside to this spot is they seem horribly under-staffed. It can take a very long time to get your order and similarly, you'll be waiting a while for the check too. Another reviewer pointed out the the wait staff is usually stoned, which seems to be the case most of the time. But! They are very friendly and the food definitely keeps me coming back for brunch. Don't go if you are in a hurry...

Pros: yummy brunch, bright atmosphere, friendly staff

Cons: slow service, understaffed

Great brunch spot. The brunch cooks will always honor a vegetarian request (say to substitute ham for spinach in an egg dish) and the pancakes are killer. Make sure your waiter brings you all the things that come with your brunch, including juice and coffee. The cactus juice is an experience, too! Love the painted murals and the colorful atmosphere. Haven't been for dinner, but it looks less veg-friendly.

I think this place is great. The food is great, the atmosphere is great, and the service is great. It is a nice place to eat brunch but the dinner is awesome too! Also, they are available for private parties. I threw one there and everyone was telling how cool the place looked and how tasty the food was. Go there!

After about a 20 minute wait (not bad for Sundy at 12:30), we were seated and served very quickly. The food was excellent (I had the french toast, my companion had the quesadillas), the coffee good, and the wait staff friendly and attentive. Until it was time to get the check. But by then we were satisfied from the meal so it was ok, although it could explain the slower-than-necessary turnover. Overall, the noshing patrons all seemed pleased with their meals. Recommend it on a nice day where it's ok to wait outside, especially if you're already in Park Slope.

Pros: good food, many choices, quick food service

Cons: wait time, slow getting check

I love this place. They have the absolute best mimosas, though a bit pricey, get one pitcher and you'll find yourself eager for more. A wide rance of tropical tastes! They have great service and the best chicken and avocado sandwich

They have a great variety: passion friut, black current, guava, mango. You name it. The food is good too. A great brunch spot. They have a new bar too, so you should stop by.

Everyone tells us this is their "favorite" place for brunch, so we were excited to try it. We went one time and didnt have a good experience (the food and service was sub par), so we just thought it was just an off-day on their part, and went back again. Now... never again - its just not good! Save your money and go somewhere else... theres plenty of other joints in the hood.

Pros: looks cute, location

Cons: slow service, long lines on weekend, tons of kids

The cuban sandwich and duck empanadas were great. Not kid focused, like one reviewer said before. They had 2 highchairs and one was broken, but I will definitely go back.

Excellent food, generous portions, great value.
Despite the hectic Sunday brunch crush, the staff were super friendly and accomodating.

Excellent food, vegetarian-friendly, usually good service. The "old-timers" there are excellent--a couple of the newer wait staff are morons who can't seem to find the coffee in time for it to arrive before you leave. Some of the best brunch food we've ever had!

Great brunch! The food is always good, the prices are right and contrary to what others have said, I have always gotten quick and attentive service. I like the Latino-fusion cuisine there, it beats the boring normal eggs benedict-type menus.

Pros: inexpensive, vegetarian options, good portions

The servers are almost always stoned. Very, very stoned. As a result, they are laid back, friendly and S-L-O-W. Aside from that and a menu priced about $2.00 too high on all items, Beso does not disappoint. Sunday brunch is a spectacular feast of breakfast plates you've only dreamt about. The mangu con huevos is phenomenal and they've got great fresh squeezed juice. Dinner is okay - not many vegetarian options, and the portions are small. But the desserts! Try every single one of them and I dare you to pick a favorite. I had a tough time, but settled on the churro. Cinnamon and chocolate heaven! The coffee is also quite good.

It's a wonderful place to be for brunch. Food is always great, specials are inventive, and the space is large, colorful, and fun to be in. Kids ae welcome, but it's not kid-focused.

Great, pleasantly spiced, Hispanic-inflected dishes. Brunch is the big meal here, with the eggs Benedict, pleasantly laced with cayenne and yuca home fries topping the list of delicacies. During hot weather, the store front lifts to leave the whole space out in the open air (but not in the blistering sun).
