2019: Brooklyn Voted Stone Park Cafe Best Lunch Deal!
Stone Park Cafe
324 5th Ave.
(718) 369-0082 – www.stoneparkcafe.com
Stone Park Cafe, which opened in September 2004, was the longtime dream of owners Josh Foster and Josh Grinker, childhood friends who grew up in Park Slope. Foster and Grinker wanted Stone Park Cafe to offer value, comfort, and superb food for diners in Park Slope and for anyone who wants to experience the heart and soul of Brooklyn. Their aim is to raise the bar in Brooklyn, using our collective background in some of the city’s finest restaurants to create a dining experience that is casual and unpretentious, focusing on fresh, seasonal ingredients, served in a comfortable neighborhood environment at an affordable price. In 2011, the pizzeria located right next door to Stone Park Cafe’s kitchen on the 3rd Street side of the restaurant became available, and Josh Foster jumped at the chance to develop a private party venue to operate alongside the restaurant. Their lunch deals provide good meals for under $20.

Featured in February, 2012 in the hit show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” as a “long-standing legacy” of the borough, Defonte’s has been collecting accolades for years, and it’s no surprise why.
