Greek Cups!


These Famed cups are so iconic and so synonymous with New Yorker’s morning coffee. Coffee carts are on nearly every corner, but not all supply the famous cups. I sought to find one, but wondered what is the reason behind it? I did research and found out that the iconic cups originate from the 1960s from the influx of Greek immigrants who owned the street carts and corner dinners. The City embraced the unique cups with the slogan “We are happy to serve you.” Today nearly 15 mill are used a month! The cups are used in countless film and tv adaptations of New Yorkers. As seen here in Gossip Girl!
