The early bird may get the worm, but the late riser gets the next best thing: brunch. There’s probably nothing better on a Sunday afternoon than sleeping in and getting brunch with the family. Queens is sprinkled with plenty of great restaurants to choose from, but only one can dish out the best eggs, bacon and sausage for lunch. This year, treat yourself one day and sleep past 10 a.m., lounge around the house a bit, and then chow down on the Best Brunch in Queens.
