Introduced in 1963, the Anthora coffee cup with the friendly “We Are Happy to Serve You” message was ubiquitous in New York City. Coffee shops, diners, bodegas, and street vendors all served their to-go coffee in the blue, gold, and white paper cup with the Greek-inspired design. Even today, the cup is an instantly recognizable icon of New York City and a reminder that the Big Apple can be a very friendly place.
