Prince's Coffee House

2306 Arthur Ave, Bronx

Open Monday through Sunday 7:00AM - 11:00PM

While the vibe in 'the real Little Italy' is decidedly old-school with tons of decades-old family-run businesses that give the street its charm, Prince's Coffee House is a newcomer--it opened in 2016 and has become quite a popular destination, serving Prince Espresso and Devolli Turkish Coffee brands that are roasted in Kosovo. Even more delightful than the coffee is their homebaked pastries, like poppy seed cake, berry cheesecake, gusto bianco, etc. You can’t beat the atmosphere, either -- friendly staff, unique and artistic decor, and popular music hits playing in the background.  

The American Planning Association, dedicated to the field of urban planning, recently named Arthur Avenue in the Bronx one of 2016's "Great Streets of America," because of its perfect mix of cultural and commercial, and its rich Italian heritage and history that makes the street absolutely one of the best destinations in New York City.

Some New York natives are quick to point out that Arthur Avenue should be acknowledged as the "real Little Italy;" the Italian immigrant history that began in 1950's is still strong today. While new shops occasionally pop up, the originals--from cannoli stands to pasta shops to butchers--are going strong, having been passed down through generations of families still living in the neighborhood. Whether you're looking for Olive Bread, fresh mozzarella or cannolis, Arthur Avenue doesn't miss a beat when it comes to delivering authentic Italian goods and much more.
