Can't wait to come back – I'm rarely in Harlem, but was visiting a friend and then looking for a place to eat together. I have to say I was a bit worried I wouldn't find a place in the neighborhood where I'd enjoy eating, so I was pretty happy and delightfully surprised to walk into Spaha Cafe. There was a nice variety of tasty treats on the menu and I decided to sample the pesto chicken sandwich on crusty ciabatta, while my pal had the vegan sandwich with grilled vegetables & tofu on whole wheat. I have to confess that I LOVED my pesto chicken, it was exactly what my taste buds were craving and the ciabatta bread made it perfect. I tried a bite of my friend's sandwich, and even though I am not a huge fan of vegan food, it was pretty darned good. We were still a little hungry and not ready to leave yet, so we shared a carrot souffle and it was sweet and mouth watering at the same time. I talked to the the lady who served us and it turns out she was the owner. She was a sweetheart and talked about her store and how she likes to support local suppliers. I thought that was pretty neat. I left that store feeling full and feeling good overall. If I'm ever back in that area, I'm definitely stopping by this joint again.
Film Industry's Hang Out – If you want to meet some movers and shakers of the entertainment industry while you enjoy the best Mocha and sandwhich in uptown, this is the place to go!! you feel right at home when the staff and management greets you with a generous smile and knows your name after one visit! 5+++ stars and much success for SpaHa!!
Precious little Cafe in East Harlem – I randomly ran into this place the other day and was very surpised to find a nice location like this in the middle of harlem! Dont get me wrong, I live in Harlem and love it, but this european style Cafe is something special here!
I took the nutritional dinner offer which was a charcoiled grilled chicken with any three items for only $11,95. I have to say it was astonishingly good! The chicken wasn't too dry and the sundried tomato I ordered with the meal were very tasty!
As I said I was surprised to find a place like this that offers good organic food at affordable prices in between all the subways and wendy's.
I'll come back!
