Great Salads and Desserts

We were looking for salads, and this place had unusual ones. The Asian Salad was big, super fresh ingredients and crispy noodles, good dressing. The service was attentive and friendly -- felt like we were family. Carrot cake was huge, great ginger flavor. Yum!

Walked past and the place looked interesting. A huge menu with a wide variety of choices, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. A whole page of quesadillas! Service was fast and attentive. Will definitely go back.

We like T. Paul's Cafe. The food is consistently good and they have such a great variety on the menu from which you can choose. We have had the seafood salads, the seafood, and their specialty items are good too, They have pasta dishes, sandwiches, and there are always interesting appetizers. The wait staff is efficient and congenial.

I've been to Urban Cafe three or four times now and absolutely love it. The strawberry lemonade is fresh and made with the right amount of sugar. The quesadillas are great, as is most everything I've tried there. Don't hesitate if you are on the fence.

My 9 year old grandson and I spent the day in Astoria and ate lunch at T. Paul's Urban Cafe based on the recommendation of a friend. We were not disappointed! My grandson ordered a pasta dish from the kid's menu and he absolutely devoured it. That says a lot because he is a pretty picky eater! I ordered the... More

Two of them on this menu caught my eye, so I asked our server which she would recommend. She didn't just tell me which was her... More

We needed a quick lunch spot on our way out of town and decided to try Urban Cafe. Everything was great! We had salads, sandwiches, clam chowder, chips & salsa and a giant peanut butter cookie! It took a little longer than usual to get the food but it was worth the wait!

We have eaten restaurant meals in Astoria on many occasions, but I have never enjoyed a meal more than the tasty food dished up in this casual, idiosyncratic, storefront restaurant in the downtown. I had the most delectable pan fried oysters, and the dinner came with a substantial and delicious salad. The ladies who waited on us were delightful, and... More

Great food, service, and atmosphere. Highly recommended if you are ever in the Astoria area. My family and I stayed only two nights but came here twice to eat.
