In 2001, Robert Gordon opened Footprints Cafe Inc. - Clarendon’s first and flagship restaurant located at 5814 Clarendon Road in the Canarsie neighborhood of Brooklyn. This entrepreneurial genius, who was born in the Caribbean island nation of Jamaica, sought to serve great-tasting, authentic Jamaican dishes like jerk chicken, curry goat, and oxtail alongside his now world-famous Rasta Pasta.
The success of Footprints Cafe Inc. - Clarendon led Robert to open a sister restaurant in Coney Island in 2006, which is now located at 1521 Surf Avenue, Brooklyn, just a stone's throw away from the world-famous Coney Island Amusement Park and Boardwalk. With delectable cuisine, exotic drinks, and great entertainment, it brings an upscale taste of the Caribbean to Coney Island's diverse and fast-growing community.
Footprints Cafe Inc. - Clarendon’s take-out facility, Footprints Cafe Inc. - Clarendon Express, opened right smack in the heart of the Caribbean immigrant community in the Flatbush Avenue area of Brooklyn in 2013. It now rivals all local restaurants with its diverse and comprehensive menu, as well as its five-star- quality take-out food.
Today, Footprints Cafe Inc. - Clarendon is renowned for its excellent cuisine, which is complemented by modern local and international influences. We are looking forward to serving you at Footprints Cafe Inc. - Clarendon – Brooklyn’s Caribbean Kitchen, Home of the Rasta Pasta!
