A Word Or Two About 'Fast Break' Coffee Shop
"Fast Break" what does it mean? Perhaps it means one can be served with fast food, such as cold cuts with lettuce and tomatoes.
My friends let me tell you; Fast Break cooks gourmet style on many different dishes, such as Veal Scaloppini, Roasted Chicken, Lasagna and many different vegetable dishes, roasted potatoes and of course, the owner cooks all the food.
Speaking of the owner, he works 90 hours per week and not a dish goes out without his supervision.
As far as competition, many new emporiums have opened on Beach 116 Street and would you believe that they all are a boost to Fast Break's business.
Customers know good food when they taste it and Fast Break is busier than ever. Million-dollar décor is great but, bad service and cold food when it arrives at your table leaves you discontented and disappointed.
Fast Break takeout dishes offer a big variety of food, hot and economically suited to your pocket; wrapped in germ proof plastic wrap, guaranteed to get your food home hot and ready to eat.
Fast Break seating area may not hold many seats, and yet all the customers are served as if one is eating in the most elegant restaurant.
Writing about Fast Break is a pleasure and unsolicited, when one can speak or write from the heart, Beach 116 Street is proud and welcomes Fast Break into the community.
Again, I cannot speak enough about Mike, the owner. Do you know he greets all his customers as friends and becomes very concerned when one is not well, he even calls you at home to cheer you up.
Remember the slogan "try the rest and then Fast Break for the Best." As for this reporter and former owner of Blimpy, the only place to eat is at Fast Break.
