  • 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!
  • 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!!
  • 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
  • Make sure you try a latte, they're delicious!
  • incredible neighborhood spot. the brioche grilled cheese with tomato soup is the business, with an iced coffee or pint of constantly rotating local beer. wi-fi, great space, friendly staff. perfect.
  • Late hours. Coffee from Coffee Labs Roasters in Tarrytown, NY. Craft ales. Quality ciders. Fancy grilled cheese and brunch classics. Find all of this in Astoria at the very welcome Queens Kickshaw.
  • Dive into the three cheeses mac and cheese, which is topped with crunchy green beans and caramelized onions.
  • the potato layer cake is tremendous, and available for weekday brunch. my favorite daytime place in all of new york to work + listen to nina simone, also happens to be three blocks from my apt.
