Although you can get delicious salads and sandwiches you'll probably want to come for the desserts. Profiteroles with whipped cream, lemon tarts, flourless white and chocolate mousse cake, flourless chocolate truffle, strawberry rhubarb pie, and much more. Varieties of coffee and tea. And a bit of interesting history. Named Edgar's in honor of Edgar Allan Poe who lived at this location during 1844 - 1845. At that time, it was pretty much a farm house and not a New York City apartment building, but it's still a cool connection.

Of course, the feel is anything but farm house rustic. Today it's a kind of funky Mediterranean atmosphere, often crowded with hip, young New Yorkers. But the vibes are friendly and it is very New York, in the best possible way.
