I've also heard the Pepe on Hudson Street is struggling. The one in Cobble Hill closed last year.

They have been trying to unload this place for a while now - at least a year.

Thanks for the comment, Brooks... Didn't even realize there was one in Cobble Hill.

I've been to the 8th/C spot a few times... they always had a decent breakfast deal... There seem to be people outside in the warm-weather months. Dunno how they can survive the winters, though.

I also recall hearing from people in the neighborhood who were upset the bakery at this spot closed... Perhaps there was some lingering resentment. I don't know. Just throwing it out there.

This terrible. I love this place. The brunch is tasty and great deal. The staff couldn't be nicer. It's a great neighborhood spot.

I miss Rebbecca's the bakery that used to be there they had the best fresh bread every morning. I liked mine with garlic and butter. I was upset when it closed. But I like Pepe I have eaten there a bunch great pasta dishes. It seems to do well in the spring and summer months but really slows down once you can't sit outside.

Thanks, Biggest Pants... I couldn't remember the name of the bakery!

That bakery had really good coffee but every time I went in there I got that plus egg and cheese on a roll and it was never the same price twice. And the woman behind the counter always used a calculator to add it up! I will never forget that about it.
