We always take our guests to our favorite neighborhood brunch place Stone Park Cafe because of its great plates and awesome Bloody Marys (if you’re so inclined). Favorites include their Hangtown Fry (fried oysters, eggs and toast), which is probably the best fried oyster experience I’ve had anywhere (including New Orleans and Northeast coastal towns).

The oysters are cooked perfectly and the batter is fresh and not greasy. Biscuits and Gravy is also a treat, as is their BLT. Note that the BLT is a thick slab of bacon, best requested to be cooked well done to bring out the crispy in those suckers.
Because this is a popular Park Slope spot so for brunch, getting there before 11 am is highly advised, especially for big groups. Dinners at Stone Park are also recommended for quiet, intimate gatherings. Excellent signature cocktails as well.
