Great eats from the Grates

The Grates don't subsist off of cake alone.

While here for a year for some fun and the occasional show (you can catch them March 27 at Brooklyn Bowl), the Australian-based band has eaten, and eaten well.

"We are such foodies," confesses lead singer Patience Hodgson, who lives in South Slope. "More than any other aspect of what we do on tour, we eat food." (The band's tumblr is evidence of that, with many photos devote to meals).

When not on tour, the band can be found in neighborhood haunts such as Milk Bar (Vanderbilt and Prospect), Southside Coffee (Sixth Avenue and 19th Street), and Scottadito (788 Union St. between Sixth and Seventh avenues) for brunch.

"They have the best brunches," says Hodgson, who'll head there after a shift at the Park Slope Food Coop. "I'll have my $14.95 brunch and down as many mimosas as I can."

Just make sure to leave room for the cake.
