Scarsdale, NY 10583 Directions
With cozy vintage digs, red-vinyl booths and counter seating that overlooks a busy grill where cooks entertain and manage to whip up hot stacks (try the sweet potato or flaxseed), killer egg sandwiches, and signature omelets, it doesn’t get any more local than this. Locally owned by the Cucolo family (siblings Robert, Richard and Michelle, nephews Nicolas and Andrew, and their niece Shelby), this jam-packed diner with a welcoming, homey feel has been serving up consistently good food for a good value to its loyal, local patrons for over 50 years. Seasonal outdoor seating overlooks the quaint town of Scarsdale and dogs are welcome to relax in the sun while their owners sip ice cappuccinos. Soups are homemade, salads, sandwiches and burritos can be made to order. Smoothies too.
So, if you find yourself in the heart of downtown Scarsdale, visit the Parkway Café. You may be an out-of-towner, but you will feel like a local by the time you leave.
Serving breakfast all day along as well as turning out delicious and satisfying foods (custom made to your liking) along with daily specials, Parkway Café won’t disappoint.
The cafe is co-owned and operated by siblings Robert, Richard and Michelle, nephews Nicolas and Andrew, and niece Shelby.
Opened in1961 by their uncle, Elliott Cucullo, (ironically no relation to the family name Cucolo except thru marriage) The Parkway Cafe was originally called The Parkway Coffee Shop. Their brother Victor Cucolo worked with Uncle Elliott for many years until Victor relocated to California where he pursued his passion for food and helped build two restaurants on the west coast. Upon Uncle Elliott’s passing, Victor returned to New York to take over the Parkway Coffee Shop. With a nod to Victor’s West Coast dishes and inspiration, he created a new menu for the coffee shop and changed the name to The Parkway Café.

"Best Diner Breakfast" Editors Pick - 2018 Westchester Magazine In these cozy vintage digs, red-vinyl booths and counter seating overlook a busy griddle, where the cooks manage to whip up hot stacks try the sweet potato or flaxseed), killer egg sandwiches, and paper-thin omelets all at once. Signature omelets, like the Andy (avocado, ham, muenster cheese, tomato, and scallion), are a nod to their regulars.
"Best Hearty Breakfast" Editors Pick - 2006 Westchester Magazine A Scarsdale institution that in its 70-ish years in business has aimed to please with a diner-like menu of options. Hearty breakfast items are on the menu, and so, too, are sophisticated salads and creatively concocted sandwiches. Mostly, though, it’s the atmosphere—the long counter of stools, the cozy booths, and the sometimes brusque staff—that keep us coming back for a retro experience like no other.
