Edgar’s Cafe sits nestled on West 84th Street and is one of the best kept secrets on the Upper West Side. The moment you arrive, it is evident who this cafe was named for; an oversized portrait of poet Edgar Allen Poe haunts the dining area, and as you gaze around this magical Mediterranean eatery, you immediately notice the vaulted ceiling, which was designed to appear as if it were on fire. The marble café tables are charming and are accompanied by wire parlor chairs.
Owner Anna DiLullo offers a refuge from the noisy harried city, and presents patrons with a fun atmosphere where they can enjoy a light lunch, Sunday tea, or post-theater dessert (the Loewes multiplex is right around the corner). The cafe is open until 1a.m. on week nights, and 2a.m. on the weekends, giving neighbors a place to go at all hours.
The menu consists of a wide array of salads and sandwiches. Foccacia with melted fontina and gruyere cheese stuffed with bruschetta is among one of the many favorites. All entrees are served with a generous side of mesculin greens.
Edgar’s Cafe is known for the wonderful desserts, all of which are presented at the front of the dining area. Many consider the Tiramisu, which is made fresh
on the premises, one of the best in New York City. Frutti di Bosco - a wild berry tart - boasts fresh berries that were picked on the outskirts of Milan. The Cognac Pumpkin Cheesecake, Chocolate Truffle Cake, and Caramel Apple Dandy are a few examples of the variety found here at Edgar’s. Order a rich coffee or freshly brewed tea paired with your dessert - Edgar's Cafe is sure to delight.
