For Brooklynites with intense 3 a.m. donut cravings: here's your salvation. This haggard-looking Park Slope coffee shop stays open at all hours—good news for sugar fiends, munchy-sufferers, and night owls marooned along an otherwise early-to-bed stretch of Seventh Avenue. The locally famous, homemade donuts, in varieties like chocolate glaze, cheese-filled and crullers, are soft, light-weight and cold to the touch, served good-naturedly by tired-looking cashiers behind a fluorescent-lit front counter. The rest of the diner's expansive menu—loaded with Greek diner dishes like chicken souvlaki, gyros, rubbery omelets and dirt-cheap wursts and burgers—makes the donuts seem positively gourmet. The joint offers all-night delivery and takeout service, but the pre-dawn scene, with red-eyed regulars propping themselves up on bar stools and scruffy types drifting to sleep in the shop's narrow booths, provides just enough schaudenfraude to get you through the night.
