Not Your Usual Brunch House of Small Wonder in Williamsburg!

I was looking for a unique brunch spot in the Williamsburg area since my fiancee and I were out there early this summer to see Chvrches play an outdoor show, and House of Small Wonder fit the bill perfectly.

The modest little cafe is nestled next to Zenkichi, right by N6th st and Wythe.  The space is tiny but has cute whimsical decor, and has a tree in the center of the room that extends from the floor to the translucent ceiling that lets natural sunlight through, almost giving the cafe the feel of being in a tree house.  And yep, both Zenkichi and House of Small Wonder are both great date spots because of the ambiance, one for romantic Japanese dinner and the other for a casual brunch.

The menu is also pretty cool, and mixes of French/European cafe and Japanese fare, with dishes like hamburg steak, sashimi don, but also traditional brunch items like French toast and croque madam.  

I settled on the Okinawan Taco Rice, which is ground pork in a chili-style sauce over salad and rice, topped with a fried egg.  Sounds VERY weird, but oddly enough, it works.  

She chose the croque madame; their version comes with scrambled egg on top, with the bread still containing ham and cheese, and your choice of salad.

They also have a lot of small sandwiches and treats.  I also ordered the Nutella banana croissant, cuz it has Nutella, banana, in a croissant! And yes, it's as good as it sounds!
