Windsor Terrace is a quiet little neighborhood just south of South Slope. It’s mostly residential with only main commercial street running down the center. That’s Prospect Avenue. On the very south end there is Ft. Hamilton Parkway, which has a few more cafes, which borders Kensington. Here is a perfect Saturday in Windsor Terrace.
Morning: First we stop by Steeplechase on Ft. Hamilton Parkway for some coffee before crossing the foot bridge for a walk in Prospect Park. After walking for a bit, Elk Cafe is a great place for some baked goods and breakfast sandwiches. They are right across from Prospect Park and have outdoor seating in the back. If you have little ones, this place is especially awesome because the back yard has a playhouse with toys!
Daytime: Our favorite lunch/brunch spot is Le Paddock. It’s French Canadian cuisine and is consistently delicious! After lunch it’s time for an activity. The Brooklyn Brainery, a community education center, has opened up in the center of Windsor Terrace and is a wonderful and unique way to spend a couple of hours. This weekend has a cross-stitching for beginners class.
Evening: Going to The Adirondack (pictured above) for an early drink would be our choice. They’ve got a wide selection of craft beers and outdoor seating in the warmer months. After drinks how about some fried chicken? Butterfunk Kitchen recently opened up in the neighborhood and has quickly become a favorite. The Lemonade Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Biscuits is special!
