Edgar's Cafe (UWS)

just fyi ...

DH and I saw this a few weeks ago, so I thought I'd post. Edgar's Cafe II is opening on Amsterdam between 91st & 92nd. The storefront is covered over (boards) but the sign says Edgar's second location will be "coming spring 2009".

I think this is good news. Always looking for a place closer to this side of the UWS. Especially an alternative to Starbucks as a place to sit and have a coffee/pastry with friends.

    coincidentally, i was at the original 84th St location today...i like Edgar's as a mellow place to grab a coffee or snack while working on a laptop or reading or ducking into on a rainy day...it's a little dark inside, but the staff are nice...chow-wise, while it's nothing special, the ingredients have always been fresh and they have some big healthy salads -- lettuce and tomatoes always fresh, and the avocados are always pristine...

      Responding mostly to say that I'm glad they are doing well, and I hope they are successful with it. I think their food/desserts are better than those at Cafe Lalo, which is always packed....

        I agree. Always found Cafe Lalo to be overrated. Why wait for Lalo when you can walk over to Edgar's?
