INTRODUCING: THE EDGE CAFE AT 101 EDGECOMBE

Construction at 101 Edgecombe at 139th Street has been picking up speed and a tip came in that revealed the name of the new cafe.  A Bespoke reader walked by the space and noticed that the interior was coming along but also procured information on the name of the new eatery.  The Edge Cafe apparently will be opening on this cusp block of West Harlem sometimes very soon and it seems that the new shop owners have gotten the message that there are not enough cozy coffee corners in the neighborhood.  Manhattanville Coffee will also be opening up nearby at West 142nd Street in the near future: LINK

  1. Just walked by here with my husband yesterday - chatted briefly with the owners and they said they'd be open mid-June or so. Looking forward to checking it out - Edgecombe is such a pretty street for a little cafe.

  2. I live in the building attached & am beyond excited! I always thought this would be the perfect place for a little cafe!

  3. I understand that the name The Edge is to symbolize the location of the cafe which sits right at the "edge" of two of Harlem's most historic neighbourhoods: Strivers Row and Hamilton Heights. This will be a welcomed addition to this lovely neighbourhood

  4. Is this ever opening? I live nearby and haven't seen any progress. Just a big dumpster out front.
