The Harlem location of upscale grocery store Whole Foods has officially opened today with a Cuban coffee walk-up window and Mediterranean fare.

The 40,000-square-foot grocerant at 100 West 125th Street has been jam-packed on opening day, according to photos snapped by local blog Harlem Bespoke.

Here, the outpost caters to commuters with a Cuban Coffee stand where customers can buy breakfast sandwiches and coffee drinks both inside the store and at a window on West 125th Street. It’s accompanied by a Cuban Sandwich vendor, a first for Whole Foods, selling one with with roasted pork shoulder and ham, a ropa vieja sandwich with braised beef and chimichurri, and a “faux-bano” made with avocado. Each costs $9.

New to the location is a Whole Foods-created vendor serving Mediterranean food called Kebab serving beef and lamb kofta, harissa chicken, and falafel in pitas, on platters, and in hummus bowls.

As has become standard at Whole Foods locations, this one will serve pizzas, sushi, as well as items from the hot bar and a salad bar. A cafe area up front has room for 40 people.
