Destiny Sandwich & Juice Bar in Harlem opens with soft launch, stop by for a Harlem made smoothie

The owners of Destiny Sandwich & Juice Bar, located on Frederick Douglass Blvd. between 116th and 117th Street, tell HarlemGal Inc that they are open for business. We learned about this place back in April!

They started their soft opening over the weekend and will have limited hours for the coming week, 8 am to 8 pm. Limited items will only be available on the menu as well. Once they work out the kinks of being a new business in Harlem, their hours will be from 6 am to 10 pm Monday thru Friday. Then on Saturday and Sunday their hours will be 7 am to 10 pm. See menu here.

Stop on by for a smoothie! See you there!

Harlem Yo! coming to Frederick Douglass Blvd, frozen yogurt, smoothies, shakes to be offered

I was walking along Frederick Douglass Blvd in Harlem this evening (May 10) and noticed new signage was up where the old Posh Paws was located, 2121 FDB. The purplish awning says HarlemYo!, Frozen Yogurt, Burritos, Smoothies, Shakes and Salads. Looks like Harlem’s restaurant row is getting another food/eating out option?

Help wanted at upcoming Harlem restaurant, Silvana hiring

I walked by Silvana Harlem yesterday, this is the new restaurant opening soon on 116th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd., and noticed the scaffolding is down and a help wanted sign is up!

If you’re interested in working at this upcoming Harlem hot spot, stop by Silvana this coming Tuesday, April 30 from noon to 2 pm.

By the way, I took a quick peak inside the place. It appears Silvana will have exposed brick on the first floor from left to right and columbia blue is featured on the exterior. It’s coming along! Stay tuned here for more details as they become available!

Need a place to brunch in Harlem? Try Il Caffe Latte

Jul 18, 2010 @ 10:16

By HarlemGal
On Twitter, we are sometimes asked “where should I go for brunch in Harlem?” We provide several options in our tweets. However, at the top of HarlemGal’s list I respond with “go to Il Caffe Latte at 189 Lenox Avenue.” It’s located between 119th and 120th Street on Lenox Ave, also known as Malcolm X Blvd.
The reason why I like this place so much is because it feels like I am going to family home for breakfast. It’s not big and it’s not small. It’s comfortable. When you approach Il Caffe Latte it has a wide store front with a giant squared window. That setting alone is inviting. It allows you to immediately peak in at a distance from the sidewalk. From there, you can see in and what you’ll discover are plenty of people inside enjoying themselves.
I went on a Saturday afternoon before three and ordered the Make Your Own Omelette with salad, along with multi-grain toast and iced coffee. It was absolutely the best cause the omelette was nice, big and fluffy stuffed with spinach, mushrooms and cheese. Yum! And the toast was authentic multi-grain bread with real butter, not margarine. Sometimes you can go to a restaurant and the bread is lacking. Not here, I liked my grained bread at Il Caffe Latte. And to top it all off, the iced coffee was served in a well-sized shake glass. I believe it was a pint size. So I had plenty to quench my thirst and stock up on the caffeine. Oh…and another wonderful attribute of Il Caffe Latte, I only spent about $13 dollars. Not bad for an enjoyable brunch in Harlem.

So if your asking that familiar question “where should I go for brunch in Harlem?” Try Il Caffe Latte in Harlem. But go early cause when I went to this place it was busy right up until the end of brunch, which is around three o’clock. People kept coming in and out. That was the only downside, which is manageable!

See you at brunch in Harlem.
