  • I went here for Breakfast despite the mixd reviews. There tofu scramble was the best Iīve ever had. The home fries were OK, next time I will get the fruit salad, someone ordered beside me and it was filled with strawberries and bananas. I love that there was a sprouted bagel option!
    They donīt bring out any spread for your bread so make sure you ask for it.

    I had excellent services, I was writing so she kept her distance a first but she happily obliged any requests I had and kept the coffee coming.
    I noticed she had regulars which was really cute.

    I will be back, often.

  • I have ejoyed their vegan french toast on a few occasions but there are better options for brunch in my opinion. The home fries were just meh, and I wish they had espresso. The food is reasonably priced though.

  • Review by catres on February 21, 2009:

  • Bliss has one of my favorite brunches at very reasonable prices. Great french toast topped with a seasonal berry, tofu scramble that is moist, flavorful, with veggies not just onions and peppers like so many other places. They also have a good vegan chai. The tempeh is palate dependent-meaning its the thick cut not smoked or marinated variety-so not for everyone so I usually avoid it.

  • Eughhh....Bliss has been a bit hit or miss with me. I like that its close to me for a quick vegan bfast option, but the proximity may be the only thing making me go back each time.
    I got the french toast, pretty decent actually. Their tempeh bacon made me gag, super gross whenever i have gotten it!
    Their vegan muffins are usually pretty good (Strawberry banana muffins are a great combo!) but are scarce.
    The service is usually rushed, uncaring, etc.
    Bliss is...ok.

  • Review by myfi on February 4, 2009:

  • best scrambled tofu i've had that wasn't homemade. the french toast was just oily, fried bread though. i had a juice and it was great, but anyone who only likes a little ginger probably couldn't have handled it. also i don't know what soy milk they use, but it is the nicest i've ever had anywhere. my mum got some in a jug to put in her coffee and i ended up just drinking it straight (something i can NEVER do with soy milk). service felt somewhat awkward... cute place though. interesting art on the walls.

  • Review by kalibrena on June 12, 2008:

  • I didn't see anything special about this place. A friend and I were visiting from Chicago, and while we were in Brooklyn, decided to go here for breakfast. The food was mediocre at best, there was a cockroach laying on the floor next to our table and this place was way out of the way. The service was the most appealing and still wasn't the best by far. I won't return.

  • this is the only tofu scramble I've had that I like as much as the kind I make at home. and at $4 for a heaping bowl of it, you really can't go wrong.

  • Here's a cute little spot dead in the center of Hipsterville USA. Despite its location the atmosphere is I think its strongest point: its cottagy and adorable, just sort of chunky and missmatched enough to feel like home. There is a great big window to the street which lets tons of light in and if you're so inclined, the endless peoplewatching fodder buffet. Thus it's really a nice place to go to with a group of 2 or 3 friends, added to the fact that it's BYOB - huge selling point concidering its right down the street from the best retail beer store on the entire East Coast, Spuyten Duyvil, and also right next to a bodega with a good selection and an ATM, which you'll need to hit 'cause Bliss is cash only.

    The service is totally solid, they've always been sweet to me there, and the fact that there's only one server is plain enough that you aren't going to wonder why things aren't lightning fast. It isn't the sort of place that you want to come to in a hurry anyway, its very inviting and relaxed. They do really well with just one person. It's nice, it lets you alone just enough, and its so small that you can always get a hold of him/her if you really need it.

    The food is actually the least compelling thing about the place - not to say that it sucks, it doesn't, but it does just basically serve its purpose of being veggie food. I generally go there for the purpose of buying good beer and hanging out with some friends over food in a place thats comfortable cute and vegan-friendly. Also my friend Hillary is obsessed with their corn bread, and the fact that you can sub it in for most anything that's going to appear on your plate, thus I get taken here a fair amount. All those niceities above are so unusual to find in combination that it's proven of little consequence that the food is generally nothing to talk about. That's it, it's not shitty or gross, in is just in the category of being Pretty OK, maybe some items airing on the end of Good.

    They have a portobello sandwich for instance that is pretty kickin. Really moist and delicious, hell yeah! Also this place it pretty nonoffensive for meat-eaters, and since it really says "bring yr friends" to me, there's another reason it feels inclusive in an area I usually associate with being exclusionary.

    Value varries. For instance I feel totally fine about paying $8 for that sandwich, but the burrito is way bogus at the same price. Booo that burrito. Similarly you would probably not be too stoaked to pay $5 for a PB&J, but then again I can't imagine anybody orders that, and there are plenty of good options. For instance the "bliss bowl", a macrobiotic plate, is plenty solid, especially concidering that you'll be crossing the bridge to do better. That's part of the deal with this place. Your options are really few in the area for decently healthy vegan grub. Your other choices: Foodswings, Wild Ginger, the Lucky Cat to a certain extent, and I think that's it - all of which are either junkfoody or heavy on the soy bullshit, and there's one thing that Bliss does really admirably: IT HAS VEGITABLES. Righteous. If you're in need of sugar and dessert, actually just pass on their stuff - you may as well go to Foodswings and make an evening of your gluttony.

    Some people say that they'll only go there for breakfast or brunch, given that it is practically the only place in Brooklyn to get a vegan brunch, and then there's that BYOB thing again. I can sympathize with this - $6.75 for a bigass plate of tofu scramble with homefries and a bagle = probably just the sort of situation you'll be wanting around then, and they are in fact the only suppliers.

    I used to hate this place, but it's grown on me. Maybe it's because I ate their alone first and had the burrito, and now I go there with a bunch of friends and get and sandwich. Whatever happened I'm glad I wrote about it later in the game because it's worth a shot.

  • Review by Olivia Lane on August 25, 2006:

  • I've been hear for lunch a few times. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here (it's a little too non-descript and granola for me), but whenever I'm on this end Williamsburg I drop in. The best thing about this place is that the food taste very fresh. The worst things are the lack of space and the sketchy service, which isn't the fault of the server, but more so a result of there being only one server.

  • Review by lizette on May 24, 2006:

  • Brunch here is wonderful! I highly recommend their vegan breakfast burrito (scrambled tofu with soy cheese in a wrap with black beans, pico de gallo, and vegan sour cream on the side). They have lots of vegan breakfast options - including vegan french toast, vegan pancakes (only on sundays), etc. (They also make regular french toast, regular pancakes, and serve eggs - this can make it easier to convince omnivorous friends to join you there for brunch.)

    The place itself is pretty small, though - unless you get there at an off time, there's a really good chance you'll be waiting for a table. (In my opinion, it's worth it.)
