Newly opened Brooklyn Commune was teeming with toddlers and their harried parents on their first Saturday opened. A lovely corner space on Prospect and Greenwood Avenues, the spot fills some sort of need for a cafe/market for locals. Having some local mission in mind- their appears to be house made jams and granolas as well as a nice selection of salads and sandys. I went with the BLT(pictured) for $8 which features sugar glazed bacon, avocado and tomato with tomato jam on grilled country bread along with a few taro chips and some steamed yellow wax beans. The bacon on the sandy(not cooked to order) was tasty though the tomatoes were mealy and underripe which ruined the sandy's texture. The house mixed chocolate which went into the hot chocolate($2.50) was dastardly good- rich, dark and lovely and not to be missed. Other items like breads(TomCat and Orwarshers) and cookies(Amy's) are imported. If you want to relax- skip the prime times as waits for food can be lengthy as well as the noise levels from lots of kids can be daunting.
