Stone Park Cafe - Brooklyn Brunch Does A Body Good...

Stone Park CafeStone Park Cafe - Be prepared to wait upwards to 2 hours for brunch at this Park Slope favorite.

Opened in 2004 by two local residents - "the two Joshes" Josh Foster and Josh Grinker, Stone Park Cafe serves up classic American contemporary cuisine.

Although I have yet to try Stone Park Cafe for dinner - I can vouch for their seriously unbeatable brunch offerings. Dishes ranging from Biscuits and Gravy to Shrimp and Grits to an unbeatable Short Rib Hash and Eggs...this is country cooking styled for the ever hip Brooklyn foodies.

Even the "Cobb Salad" comes with thick bacon - pork belly in this case, and a fried poached egg fit to satisfy the manliest of men.

Popular with both hipsters and families, Stone Park Cafe manages to simultaneously be the restaurant of choice to cure a nasty hangover, while also delivering the goods to the legions of devoted Park Slope "yummy mummies."

Be sure to accompany your meal with one of their mean Bloody Marys or crisp Mimosas...after all there's nothing better than a slight buzz to round out your lazy Sunday.

Tip - get there before 12pm if you want to avoid the crowds. Otherwise get ready for a long and potentially frustrating wait. After all, one can't rush the brunch crowds.
