A clever barista turned the Astor Row Cafe’s “B” rating into a more desirable offering, mixing it with some ingredients from the alphabet to serve up “brunch.”

“Since it was on the window anyway, and we have brunch every Sunday, my friend got the idea to go to the copy center and print out the other letters,” said employee Armando Burgos, adding that passers-by get it and think “it’s funny.”

Burgos said the Harlem joint’s subpar grade was for having a cleaning rag on the counter. City health officials also slammed the Lenox Ave. cafe for evidence of mice on the premises.
