The Edge is tucked on a tree-lined street and is a basement restaurant that offers a wide variety of caffeine fixes. I am not a coffee fan, but the smell was quite enticing. I watched the barista make espresso after espresso without missing a beat....More

We came for the traditional sunday brunch after the church in Harlem. The restaurant is quite small so the reservation is welcoming. The food was good and not very expensive. We had spent a good time.

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
