Just under one mile south of Prospect Park nestled in between bustling Ocean and Coney Island avenues, Ditmas Park is known for its sprawling green lawns, tree-lined streets, and large Victorian homes. While lesser-well known as a dining destination than its more northern neighbors, the area is equally deserving of recognition for its unique and diverse restaurant offerings: an eclectic mix of Filipino, Thai, and Tibetan cuisine are just a few examples. Taco trucks, greenmarket-driven restaurants, and quaint cafes are more options worth checking out.
For diners in a hurry, the B and Q subway lines at Newkirk Plaza are close to spots for grabbing a grandma slice or green enchiladas that won’t disappoint. Here are 11 Ditmas Park coffee shops and cafes, family-run businesses, and farm-to-table institutions with all of the comforts of a familiar neighborhood mainstay that attracts diners near and far.
Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission.
