Neighborhood stalwart Edgar’s Cafe has opened a second location between 91st and 92nd streets on Amsterdam Ave.
The original locale on W. 84th Street was named after writer Edgar Allen Poe, who once resided at that address. The new Edgar’s has none of the funky atmosphere of the original; it looks like any other NY sandwich-coffee shop. But the new Edgar’s, like the original, boasts an impressive line-up of coffee drinks. And, there are more than two dozen salads to choose from, including a Mediterranean Bean Salad and a Beef Carpaccio Salad. In a nod to the immediate neighborhood’s large population of observant Jews, items, like Apple Brown Betty, are labeled “kosher.”
Edgar’s doesn’t accept credit cards.
