Enjoy a special brunch menu with your favorite Local Roots farm to table dishes with some new specials like matcha and ube souffle pancakes! We've wanted to host a drag brunch since we opened our doors in Carroll Gardens. Now to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of the Local Roots Market+ Cafe, we're excited excited EXCITED to kick off our 1 year festivities with the first of many drag brunches.

Space is limited so be sure to RSVP early! There are two seatings available: 1-2:30pm or 3-4:30pm


Your ticket includes admission, one entree, and a can of award winning hard seltzer by Lunar, a fellow AAPI owned local small business. Small bites and additional beverages can be ordered. This show is family friendly but will still get sassy! The price of admission makes it possible for our small team to run the event and to pay our queens properly for the time and love it takes to put together their outfits, makeup, and performances.


We are proud to source 90% of our menu's ingredients from small, local farms that use sustainable growing practices throughout BK, NY, and PA. Pick one entree from our brunch menu at the event:
