Coffee

Horn & Hardart Coffee is available online; in the Gift Shop at the New York Public Library on 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue; at Philadelphia’s Reading Terminal Market in the “PA General Store”; and at local Specialty Food stores.

“Horn & Hardart introduced the first fresh-drip brewed coffee to Philadelphia and New York. Before then, coffee on the East Coast had been a harsh, brackish drink… After brewing each batch, H&H employees filled out a time card. After 20 minutes, they discarded whatever coffee remained and prepared more. Irving Berlin, the composer of ‘God Bless America’, wrote a famous song about this coffee, ‘Let’s Have Another Cup of Coffee,’ which became Horn & Hardart’s theme song.”- Smithsonian Magazine
