Sincerely, Harlem

The Afro Luncheonette


If you are over on Lenox and 140th across the street from the Woolworths, you could hop in and grab a signature toasted three decker sandwich at the Afro Luncheonette. The bacon and tomato was .50¢ or if you're splurging get the baked ham and cheese at .60¢...those were the lunch favorites. A King size Coke to wash it down for another .10¢ and a Deluxe Tulip Sundae from the Fountain with 2 dippers of ice cream, fresh fruit, whipped cream, crushed roasted nuts and of course that cherry on top will set you straight for .25¢. All that will only set you back $1.00 with a tip for the soda jerk. Of course you'd have to go back to the early 60's, because the Afro Luncheonette and those prices are gone! But man 'o man would I like to meet you there for a bite!       

It's a bodega now. 

This rendition of the Afro Luncheonette was commissioned for Sincerely, Harlem by the lovely and talented Jessica of Ana Handmade.
