Visions & illusions
(covers information from a vision or illusion)

Eva's Kitchen was a 20th century Harlem restaurant owned by Mrs. Jackson. Among its offerings were homemade pies, potato salad, eggs, including scrambled eggs and steak and eggs, hot dogs, soup, a sunrise special, and an extensive blue plate special menu.

Its regulars included Jimmy, writer Benny Russell, and New York Giants baseball player Willie Hawkins. The latter two both at one point pursued Cassie, a waiter at the coffee shop. By 1953, she was firmly involved with Russell, and dreamed of buying the restaurant together with him after having a talk in which Mrs. Jackson made it clear that she was serious about retiring in the next few years. (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")

The name of the restaurant was mentioned neither in the script (which simply called it a "Harlem coffee shop") nor explicitly in the episode, but the logo was clearly visible in a number of places.
According to the novelization of "Far Beyond the Stars", Eva's Kitchen was located on the corner of Lenox Avenue and 135th Street and had been in business for around twenty years.
