    Charming spot equipped with wifi in Astoria. Love the greenery! Veggie burger with sweet potato fries paired with a Harvey jasmine tea made for a tasty lunch. Will definitely be back!

    Try the summer specials! We were so impressed. The tacos never dissapoint, and the service is always friendly and on point. Hip AND Classy. Good drinks=strong drinks.

    Really chill and good food and appetizers, the cheese platter and the hummus platter are perfect for ppl to chill and have cocktails.

    Service is a little slow most if the time, but the food more than makes up for it. Brunch is one of the best in Astoria -get the English, Mediterranean, or Cypriot breakfast.

    Try the cheese platter is very good. They have a warm wine drink for the winter that is amazing.

    Service/staff is bizarre, like you've interrupted a private event and shouldn't be there but eventually they decide to serve you anyway.

    This has quickly become my favorite neighborhood spot. Good drinks, gluten-free food options, chill vibe. Only con is that service can be a bit slow.

    I love the atmosphere here, the brunch can't be beat, and there's plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, but the service can be a bit of a nightmare. Very slow and inattentive.

    The server who used to nice years ago has been tried by time & is now a raving bitch. The meze plate is dry when it shouldn’t be, the tahini is runny. The waitress doesn’t know her head from her tail.

    Food only decent,Desert nor good. Wait staff disconnected - Shy? I agree here....I am from the area guys! Your staff needs to receive all your guests with a little more enthusiasm. Will try again.

    I wish the food wasn't so delicious, bc the service is awful. Expect to wait at least 15 mins after ur seated before you are even spoken to. Order everything at once bc u may not have another chance.

    Brunch served from 2am - 5pm! $12.99 with a good bloody mary is a fair price.

    The food music and atmosphere is great, the service is severely lacking. Staff takes ages to ever get to you. Staff are somewhat rude and have a sense of superiority over their customers.

    Have a bill that's $15 min and you qualify to purchase movie tickets (min 1 per person) at a reduced rate! It's a great deal!
