About Sisters Cuisine


Located off the beaten path, Sisters Caribbean Cuisine is East Harlem's diamond in the rough. Hidden away on 124th street between Park and Madison Avenue, this intimate Caribbean and Southern café has a unique décor that will remind you of home. Since 1995 owner, Marlyn Lawrie-Rogers' hands-on approach to food preparation and customer service not only ensures a plate of the highest quality, but also one tailored to your exact desire. We customize your order with whichever meats/fish and rice you fancy, and encourage you to eat at least two healthy vegetables (e.g. greens & yams, cabbage & string beans, okra & spinach). Then, to top it off our world famous pineapple cornbread is the perfect sweet ending to your memorable dining experience. Sisters has been featured in the NY Times, Time Out New York magazine, the NY Amsterdam News and more for both its warm and inviting atmosphere and delectable dishes.
