Behold Cleo's "coffeehouse"
version of the New York egg cream.
|The chocolate egg cream|
at Junior's restaurant
is served in a glass with
the recipe printed on it.
At one point, the cream was replaced with milk and the egg eliminated. By the 1920s, this simplified version was served throughout the city. Vanilla egg creams arrived in the 1950s along with (yes) coffee flavored ones.
These days, there aren’t many places to sample an authentic New York egg cream. The easiest place to find one is Junior’s in Times Square (click here to virtually visit). They even serve it in glasses with the recipe printed on them, but...
They only serve the chocolate version.
Today I’m sharing my "coffeehouse" take on this famous beverage along with a dairy-free version.
May you drink it with joy!

My husband (and partner in crime-writing) is fond of coffee egg creams and so am I. There are many ways to make them with

This is a version we enjoy. It’s a coffee soda extraordinaire, and if you like the flavor
of coffee, we think you’ll flip for this...

Thanks to everyone who came out over the weekend

We had a huge crowd and signed books for 90 minutes!
I'm playing catch up this week but hope to post photos
