    Heinz & Maria had the best coffee. Also great egg sandwichs. And their pastries were to die for!

    UPDATE: Heinz was deported sometime in the 1970’s. A soiree was in progress at the Executive Pavilion around the corner. President Tubman sent a steward to the restaurant for another case of champagne. Heinz refused saying that the last case had not been paid for. He was given 48 hours to vacate the country, never to return. His wife Maria was allowed to remain.
