It’s an altogether too familiar situation we’ve all dealt with on occasion: we’ve just gotten off the F or R train late – oh, say, 1:30 one Sunday morning – after a night of, wishfully, grand celebration with friends. Perhaps, we’ve drunk a bit too much. We desperately look forward to a bed of clean sheets and some blessed sleep until 11. But, one problem: we’re starving. Where on Earth do we go?

In Park Slope, there’s a simple solution: Daisy’s Diner.

Daisy’s, located a couple of steps from the F or R train on 9th Avenue and open 24 hours, is your standard belly-filling, exuberant American diner – and, with a menu the length of a Thomas Pynchon novel, there’s a cornucopia of choices.

For this writer, breakfast is where Daisy’s really excels: besides the traditional ‘eggs-and-bacon’ specials, Daisy’s will whip up Belgian waffle platters – one named the ‘waffle special’, it consists of waffles, sour cream, fresh strawberries, walnuts and raisins. Pancakes and French toast, too, including, if it’s to your taste, chocolate chip pancakes.

The writer is usually drawn to the big egg dishes: 3-egg omelets, of which there are, yikes, 22 choices. There’s an Irish omelet [corned beef]; a ‘Mykonos’ omelet [onions, spinach, tomato, feta cheese]; a L.E.O. [lox, eggs, onion] omelet, or, the grandfather of omelets, the ‘Juan & Jose’ super omelet [ham, sausage, bacon, mushrooms, salsa, potatoes, cheese and peppers].

Of course, Daisy’s has all the prerequisites of any really good diner: special lunch and dinner offerings, Greek, Caesar and Chef’s salads, and Burger deluxe selections. The diner has an interesting twist on the burger platters: a customer has the option of a 7-ounce or 10-ounce sized burger, and every burger choice can be prepared as beef, turkey or vegetarian.

Italian dishes – I’m partial to the chicken Marsala – are available in abundance, five triple-decker sandwiches, too. And, don’t despair if this caloric festival is not for you, you can munch on ‘waist watchers’ salads at Daisy’s, too.

Let’s not forget that Daisy’s offers 24-hour delivery service, on-line orders included.

So, all you Park Slope residents, sure, go right ahead and have a great time in the city. Just keep in mind, though, that after all that exhaustive merriment, Daisy’s Diner will await you with open arms – and glorious food.
