Honest Food.
Done Exceptionally Well.

Evelyn’s Kitchen is a cafe & catering company proudly located in East Harlem, New York.  We specialize in elevated comfort food and decadent baked goods. Owner & Executive Chef Ayala Donchin started the business in 2009, in her home, as a passion project, following the passing of her beloved godmother Evelyn.

Our cafe, which is Whole30 approved and licensed, offers fresh meals for takeout and delivery. In addition, we offer corporate, production and event catering and deliver our renowned sweets across the country in partnership with GoldBelly. We've been a part of the neighborhood since 2009 and take our commitment to the community seriously -- during the pandemic, we were proud to provide lunches to kids in need when schools shut down. We're excited to serve you.
