Across street from the Elliott Hotel - only stopped by for a cocktail - service was good - atmosphere was festive and rocking - not a quiet cocktail bar - portions on the food looked huge - place is always packed

We stopped in today after a morning of sight seeing around Astoria. Cute, chill little place on the main drag. Friendly staff. Fairly quick service. Vegan and vegetarian on menu. We all enjoyed our fresh halibut tacos topped with crispy slaw and aside of tortilla chips and pico. We did not try the desserts but they were highly recommended by... More

We were a group of four and I was the out of state tour guide. I picked T Paul's Urban Cafe because the menu seemed to have something for all appetites. It did. It had steak for my beef eating friend and oysters for me. All four of us had something a little different and there were no complaints. While... More

very funky spot on commercial street... Friendly staff, NO Wifi, reasonable prices. We were here on a cruise and my wife thought it would be nice to eat off the ship for a change. She loved the quesadilla and the salsa was extra spicy! I had the New England clam chowder and rate it 6 out of 10. Creamy, generous... More

Our family foursome stopped in for a late lunch. The cafe was very busy, a good sign, and we were seated within 15 minutes. We ordered and paid, then sat and waited for the food. Since we were on vacation, the unusually long waiting time didn't stress us, but eventually we asked about the order. Our server realized that the... More

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
