Hoft's-Burke Ave, Bronx-Egg Cream

ric | Feb 22, 2002 08:10 PM

In my enthusiastic search for Egg Creams, both soda fountain and home-recipe varieties, I recently came across a 1986 book in the library by the Sterns, "Coast to Coast Cookbook: Real American Food."
They have a page on New York Egg Creams, and particularly mention "Hoft's on Burke Avenue, in the Bronx [which] offer(s) a rainbow of syrups for flavored cokes and sodas...Hoft's also makes a classic egg cream..." I have been unable to get current information on Hoft's, but ran across an address for Hoft's Candy Kitchens on White Plains Rd. You New Yorkers, help me out here, as I left NY a while back and I'm having a wonderful time in Florida. Is Hoft's still in the business of Egg Creams or in the business of anything? Should I put it on my list for the next time we come up for a visit, or strike it off permanently? Is it Burke Ave. or White Plains Rd.?
Please note, I am not asking the Chowhounds to re-hash everything that's been written on these boards about Egg Creams, but if you do have some new tidbit-fire away!! But what about Hoft's?
