EVERYBODY LOVES EDITH and EVANGELOS
If you work on or around Broadway and 48th you know Edith and Evangelos and their Little COFFEE BREAKFAST Cart … They’re the Favorites on the block and many local workers wouldn’t Dream of getting their morning Coffee anywhere else, especially not at Starbucks.
“I only buy coffee from them, no one else, because they’re always smiling,” said Pilar Carrerra, 33, who works at Fossil at the corner of 48th Street. “They’re my absolute favorite.” Workers at the Morgan Stanley headquarters are their “bread and butter,” said Edith.
“They’re like the parents of the block,” said Levi Gilbert, 50, a customer for 18 years. “They always watch out for us, so we watch out for them.”
Their love story began in an unlikely place: Brownsville, Texas. Edith, then 21, was living there, and Evangelos, then 23, was working as an engine technician aboard a container ship docked at the port there.
The young man from Piraeus, Greece, first saw the Mexican-American Southern belle outside a JCPenney store. A week later, the pair said a tearful goodbye as Evangelos returned to his ship. The pair exchanged dozens of letters over the next several months.
“That one’s mine,” Evangelos declared to his Greek sailor buddies, pointing to the stunning brunette before asking her on a date.
They were married in May 1976 — after only three dates — and then moved to Astoria, Queens, in 1977. where Evangelos picked up a job at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and their only son, Dimitrios, was born in 1983.
