Looking for a new Sunday brunch spot? Try Dharma Café, which translates its “Food for Life” philosophy into a unique all-you-can-eat cornucopia of flavors every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Houston Avenue lies dormant on Sunday, but the restaurant contains just the right amount of bustle -- the perfect spot for coffee and newspaper, a mimosa with friends, or an afternoon meal. Light pours in through the well-windowed space, washing this friendly little place in a natural radiance.
Fill your fancy with traditional breakfast items (like waffles, banana pancakes, cinnamon rolls, and made-to-order eggs) -- or branch out with more progressive fare (like delicious homemade fettuccine in a roasted red pepper sauce, fabulous Cuban black bean soup with pork, and grilled eggplant with peas and chickpeas). The buffet is $17, which also earns you a mimosa, champagne, or orange juice.
A full belly and a soothed soul. What a nice way to welcome in the week ahead.
