My review on TripAdvisor:



I came across G’s Coffee Shop (Steve & Gus Coffee Shop as the sign says) when I was taking a tour of the near by Cloisters Museum in Fort Tyron Park and then explored the park. After I finished at the museum and walking the park, I was starved and explored around the neighborhood to find a place to eat. Having walked the neighborhood for my blog, “MywalkinManhattan.com” a few years earlier, I had passed many restaurants on 207th Street that had opened and closed over the years and I came to G’s Coffee Shop which I had not noticed on my last few trips to the neighborhood.

Sitting down to eat at this small hole in the wall diner, I found that it was a mixture of hipsters, yuppie types and Dominican residents all lined up for breakfast and lunch. There are all sorts of snacks and ice cream along the shelves and cases but the real draw is the warming container in the window where freshly fried ‘pastilitos’ are held. There were two types available, chicken and beef, ($1.25) and they were perfectly fried out and not a bit greasy. I munched on them while I was paying and looked at the menu where nothing was above $10.00 and after I paid for my snack, I walked around the neighborhood.

The chicken soft tacos everyone seems to order there

Heading back for a larger lunch, I tried the Triple Decker Sandwich Turkey Club that was served with French Fries and a pickle ($8.50). I got this large sandwich on toasted bread loaded with fries that was freshly made with sliced turkey breast and bacon and that really brought out the flavor of the sandwich. It was enough for lunch and dinner.

When I returned the next week for another tour of the Cloisters, I stopped in for breakfast and had a Cheese Omelette with sausage and home fries and toast ($8.25). The quality and the flavor was wonderful and the portion size was quite large. The eggs were fluffy and filled with gooey Cheddar Cheese. The restaurant gives you a nice size portion of well spiced home fries with peppers and onions and with a little hot sauce brings out the flavor of everything.

The service is very nice and the orders come out quick. It is a Hodge Podge of neighborhood types but that’s what I think makes this G’s Coffee Shop special, it really is a neighborhood restaurant catering to everyone. It is a restaurant that every neighborhood should have.

My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
