If you are near or interested in going to the Park Slope area in Brooklyn, I would recommend stopping by Lively Brooklyn right by Prospect Park.
I went here with my roommate around this time last year, and we really enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and amazing food.
Everything on the menu is made from organic food and you can’t go wrong! They have a great variety of homemade juices and gluten free items.
This was more of a relaxed brunch spot, as we sat on a couple benches and grabbed our food from the bar when it was ready.
I had the avocado toast which came on gluten free bread (you could hardly tell), and it was packed with flavor. Avocado toast is a classic, and they had a fun and different take on it.
My roommate got the Green Energy Smoothie (coconut milk, purified water, banana, kale, spinach, and lemon) which was full of flavor and tasted super healthy.
She also got the Tropical green smoothie bowl, which consisted of coconut water, almond milk, spinach, kale, pineapple and banana all blended together and topped with chia seeds, blueberries, bee pollen and some gluten free granola. This bowl was so delicious and the topping really added that extra crunch and flavor.
The last thing she got was the almond butter toast which was a slice of gluten free bread (again you can’t even tell), topped with house-made almond butter, whipped coconut yogurt, buckwheat and fresh banana. This was the perfect opposite of the avocado toast and had the ideal sweet and savory combination.
We really loved this place and felt so cozy sitting here we didn’t want to leave! With all the wood furniture, green plants, and white back splash and accents, it gave off such fun vibes. We would definitely come back here again!!
