Foursquare Tips

  • Here, grilled cheese receives the star treatment & all sandwiches are under $11. Try the rich melted Gouda, offset with pickled jalapeos, sweet guava jam & creamy black-bean hummus on brioche ($10).
  • Excellent neighborhood cafe, bar, and sandwich spot. Some of the best coffee and grilled cheese in Queens, with an esoteric beer, wine, and cider list.
  • Grilled cheese & beer. That's really all you need to know.
  • Can you believe that the simplest of sandwiches can possibly be the best? I can after coming here. Order a flight of craft beer then get a pint of your favorite. Music can be a bit Indie sometimes...
  • Skip the coffee and come for their grilled cheese, soups, salads and on-tap beers. It's a great place for comfort food or healthy food. But not for coffee.
  • Hidden gem... Come to get your caffeine and grilled cheese fix.
  • Try the Gouda with black bean hummus, jalapeo, and guava jam. Delicious!
  • The sparkling rose is glorious!
  • Get an iced coffee. Add nothing. Enjoy.
  • It is loud as all hell in here.
  • Great food, great drinks (the coffee & beer especially), great staff, great patrons, great music. An absolute must if you ever find yourself in the area!
  • Incredible flavors in the egg sandwich. Such a great way to start a day, dances on your palate, sweet and salty. Don't share, get your own!
  • It's vegetarian. They don't tell you, but there is no meat. Zero meat!!
  • Here the classic Egg and Cheese gets a substantial upgrade. Egg and cheese is filled with a lush dollop of creamy ricotta, and sandwiched between thick slices of cheese-crusted Balthazar brioche.
  • Run by a husband & wife team, this Astoria spot is our favorite for everything except coffee. Make a day of it with a matcha latte, curried pumpkin seeds, quality food & craft beer flights.
  • Critics' Pick winner of The Village Voice Best of NYC 2012 Best New Coffeehouse
  • The fontina cheesecake is an unexpected highlighta pleasantly sharp and savory scoop of creamy cheesecake sitting atop a bed of cereal crumbles and drizzled with a blackberry-and-wheat-beer sauce.
  • @these prices for the beer and cider selection it would b helpful if servers had a bit of insight into ANYTHING!! Friendly yet I think the dishwasher might of been more knowledgeable about the menu
  • Good beer. Good food. Go queens go
  • Make sure you try a latte, they're delicious!
