Open for Business: Dunkin' Donuts, 306 Seventh Avenue

Almost two months to the day since it was first announced, a 24-hour Dunkin' Donuts franchise opened this morning in the space that was last home to Tonio's Italian Restaurant, on Seventh Avenue between Seventh and Eighth Streets.

It's a little smaller than other branches, but Dunkin' Donuts is one of the only national franchises that can fit into the traditional storefront layout (as opposed to, say, a Duane Reade). It pretty much looks like every other Dunkin' Donuts out there, with a long counter and a small seating area in the back. Even though it's just a block away from the venerable 7th Avenue Donuts, something tells me that this new addition won't hurt their businesses, because who buys donuts from Dunkin' Donuts anymore anyway?

Dunkin' Donuts, 306 7th Avenue Brooklyn NY 11215.

Since so many people in Park Slope seem to think that a couple chains are the end of the world, I will be interested to see if this place survives.

if it does, people like Dunkin Donuts. If it doesn't, then people don't want places like this. We'll see how it goes.

is this going to be opened 24 hours?

December 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFrank

The world will not end. But 7th Ave will have more litter.

I was happy to see that the exterior was relatively restrained, given this chain's penchant for hideous colors and interior design.

I will never understand NYers love affair with the factory-made mediocre donuts and artificially-flavored coffee. I know NY isn't exactly known for high standards in these departments, but there are so many options for good coffee (and donuts) within walking distance of this place, I can't imagine why someone would choose to eat here.

I have to assume people are lazy and don't want to walk to get something of higher quality. It's the only thing that makes sense. If you are those tax guys next door are you going to go next door to get coffee or are you going to walk another block to crespella espresso bar.

Only time will tell. I hope the latter.

December 16, 2011 | Unregistered Commentergarfieldplace

ChickenUnderwear, just because yous aw one DD cup on the ground does not mean that this DD opening is going to cause a catastrophic amount of litter, sheesh!

Anyway, as much as I am not crazy about chains, I have to admit, I do like DD coffee and will most likely go here a lot. BTW, that 7th Avenue Donut place I have always found gross, i can't believe people buy food from them. though, I will admit, I haven't been there in years, maybe they have cleaned up their act?

December 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterParkSlopePerson

Oh, and the DD on 5th Avenue and 9th Street seems to do well

December 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterParkSlopePerson

7th Avenue Donut place got a letter C from the dept. of health...the place is aweful and very dirty.

December 16, 2011 | Unregistered Commentereric s

Dropped in this morning at 6. They'll do well. They're going to be open 24 hours so they're going for the Methodist crowd. Plus, there aren't many places to get coffee before 7 around there. And many people like Dunkin for some strange reason. Me, I think it tastes like they poured water over already used beans...

December 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRobsAlterEgo

@ParkSlopePerson

Everything they sell is to go. Mark my words, there will be a trail of DD litter between that new store and the hospital. Gimme a week and I will update my blog.

Dunkin' Donuts#1 welcome to Park Slope

December 16, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterslopey

The hours will definitely help. It amazes me how all the coffee shops in Park Slope close at 7pm. Hey, guess what we don't all go to bed at 9! Some of us have wacky hours and would love to have a cup of joe after dinner. While I wont be shuffling down to DD for that nasty coffee, I do appreciate that chain stores have hours i can get behind. More businesses in Park Slope should be open later as this is SUPPOSED to be a 24 hour city. You go nearly anywhere in Europe or South America and getting a cup of nice coffee at a cafe at 9pm is easy as pie. Here, not a chance.

Did you start a blog just to track trash from Dunkin Donuts? I see no other posts on your "blog."

December 16, 2011 | Unregistered Commentergarfieldplace

24 hours, and across from the hospital? That's going to come in handy for more than a few folks. 7th Ave Donuts will be just fine as well.

Wake me when they replace the Food Coop with a Cheesecake Factory.

December 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJuly Church

No, chicken underwear blogs about tons of things, you only saw their DD post because that is all they linked to

December 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterParkSlopePerson

The Dd looks great

I am not a fan but it's the best looking store on the block

As for trash , why don't the people throw into their trash into the cans
There is 1 on every corner

Bareburger has what, four locations, and are all NY-based? Is criteria for opening a proper business in PS going to be to have no plans on expanding in the future?

I don't we are talking about bare burger or DD ? But they both are franchise for sure. We have burger flood in parkslope on 7th ave.

December 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterVironica

Please, comparing Bare Burger to Dunkin Donuts just because they have more than one location is like comparing apples to Twinkies.
