☞ BESPOKE: Striped Awnings
Morningside Heights' brand-new Cafe Bagutta has added a very bespoke awning to its vintage exterior. As we mentioned in the prior post, we absolutely adore retro stripes on a storefront, and Bagutta's aqua and white stripe awning adds some downtown panache to the usual solid assortments of awnings found above 110th Street. Of course, there are a couple of other businesses in the area that have achieved the same charm including Lee Lee's Bakery in South Harlem and Bagutta's neighbor a block north, Kitchenette. Cafe Bagutta is located at 1241 Amsterdam Avenue between West 120th and West 121st Street. Tel.(212) 222-6340. Take the A, C, B, D to 125th Street or the 1 train to 116th Street.
