About

Irwin Hasen, the artist who drew the Dondi comic strip (the favorite of my grandfather and me) from 1955 to 1986 has breakfast here every morning at 8:30. Dondi cartoons are posted in the cafe, according to a nice article in the New York Times of 12/18/11, Metropolitan section at p. 4.

Irwin Hasen died on March 20, 2015. The obituary in today's Philadelphia Inquirer reads," Just as another orphan, Annie, caught the country's attention during the Depression, the story of Dondi's rescue from war-torn Europe by GIs resonated with post-war America."
