Shore Haven Luncheonette | Shore Haven Luncheonette in Bath Beach, Brooklyn has been in business since the 1950s. We love its ‪#‎handpainted‬ ‪#‎signage‬, especially the proclamation that it has the "BEST COFFEE in BENSONHURST"! It really does have good ‪#‎coffee‬ ☕️and serves a fantastic buttered ‪#‎bagel‬! The interior is original, complete with lunch counter and stools and they also still serve old-fashioned egg creams and malteds! Photo from 2009 appears in our newly released book "Store Front II- A History Preserved". ‪#‎storefront‬ ‪#‎signgeeks‬ ‪#‎tv_typography‬ ‪#‎tv_retro‬ ‪#‎tv_retrotype‬ ‪#‎fontastic‬ ‪#‎typevstime‬ ‪#‎jj_texttypographical‬
