Dunkin' Donuts comes to Seventh (Here's Park Slope)
The real donuts are one block south, at 7th Ave. Donuts - a much better place to sit and catch a piece of an older Slope, along with a coffee & a cruller.  I liked it when they had the little paper cones for coffee, but it hasn't changed too much over the years.  It's still a teenage nightime hangout, and day or night, you'll find customers you'll never see sipping a latte in Grumpy's. Last time I was there, a couple of old guys were chuckling, and making lewd remarks about a friend's extended bathroom trip, while the kid next to me, filling out a job application for Rite Aid, spun out time with his mother, who took half an hour to order, and sent her pancakes not once but two times.  The waitress was heroically patient with this nonsense, while the guy at the griddle rolled his eyes, cursed under his breath & shot the lady a look of pure evil.

I know. I was shocked they put up with her, because they're not exactly a soft bunch in there. I expected the waitress to throw her out. Great donuts there, & always entertaining stuff going on!
