What To Do In Hyde Park
If you like delicious french fries then head out to Hyde Park Grill. They make the best buttermilk dipped fries in town and serve them with a pepper, onion mayonaise. Across the street is Mother’s Cafe and Garden a vegetarian Restaurant. I like the food even though I’m a meat eater. Hyde Park Bakery has some really good gigantic muffins. They also have very good cupcakes and you should also try the salty oat cookie. I know it doesn’t sound good, but trust me, it does. This lazy little neighborhood is like going back in time. It’s easy to either walk or ride a bike to the shops on Duval, including Fresh Plus Grocery Store. There’s a laundromat, a barber shop, a gelato and coffee shop. Shipe Park is nearby and has a playscape, 2 tennis courts, a baskeball court and a small pool. Also, close to the park is the Elizabet Ney Museum. Hyde Park also has several churches. Hyde Park Baptist is the largest and also has an excellent school system. There is also a Methodist, Christian, Presbyterian and Church of Christ churches in the neighborhood.
