The modest little cafe is nestled next to Zenkichi, right by N6th st and Wythe. The space is tiny but has cute whimsical decor, and has a tree in the center of the room that extends from the floor to the translucent ceiling that lets natural sunlight through, almost giving the cafe the feel of being in a tree house. And yep, both Zenkichi and House of Small Wonder are both great date spots because of the ambiance, one for romantic Japanese dinner and the other for a casual brunch.
The menu is also pretty cool, and mixes of French/European cafe and Japanese fare, with dishes like hamburg steak, sashimi don, but also traditional brunch items like French toast and croque madam.
I settled on the Okinawan Taco Rice, which is ground pork in a chili-style sauce over salad and rice, topped with a fried egg. Sounds VERY weird, but oddly enough, it works.
She chose the croque madame; their version comes with scrambled egg on top, with the bread still containing ham and cheese, and your choice of salad.
They also have a lot of small sandwiches and treats. I also ordered the Nutella banana croissant, cuz it has Nutella, banana, in a croissant! And yes, it's as good as it sounds!
