Bonbon Lakay is the kind of place you really want to have in your neighborhood. This Haitian cafe in Park Slope is incredibly charming, and the food will make you want to walk back to the kitchen and personally thank the chef.

Bonbon Lakay  review image

From the moment you walk through the door, you’re immersed in the good vibes of this cozy little spot. The dance-y music will get your blood pumping, and so will the very strong coffee or tart, not-too-sweet limeade, if caffeine isn’t your thing. 

You can grab some deeply satisfying food to go here—a patty makes for a perfect meal you can eat in transit—or sit and linger over one of the menu’s several variations on griot. We’re partial to the griot sandwich, which is so good we’d marry it if marrying sandwiches were a thing. The potato roll is extra soft, which provides a compelling textural contrast to crunchy, spicy pikliz and saucy, crisp fried pork.
