Koronet Pizza New York – Home of The Giant Jumbo Pizza Slices
2848 Broadway @ W110th Street
Went out to Koronet Pizza the other day – haven’t been back for sometime. Koronet Pizza is located at 110th street and Broadway just conveniently 6 blocks south of Columbia University (also a few blocks south of Caffee Swish). Koronet is really the King of pizzas and they’re famous for their jumbo giant pizza slices. For $2.75 you basically get the equivalent of 2 pizza slices as compared to delis throughout the city. I used to bike up here and get a slice just for lunch. Here’s a photo I took of one cheese slice – you can use my ipod to gauge this cheese slice’s size. I actually heard a rumor that Koronet Pizza had to special order pans for these giant pizza pies. The actual taste? Well I suppose you get what you pay for – the sauce on the pizza is runny and the crust of the pizza dough is a little chewy but overall it’s not a bad slice for the money. Hey, I lived off of Blondie’s and Fat Slice out in Berkeley so I know about college students and pizza. But I have to say this is nothing like my favorite pizza places such as Patsy’s or Two Boots, or Joe’s down in the village.
