4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014 NEW

A quick stop on a late afternoon produced few choices for our sweet tooth but intrigued us enough to come by the next morning. Sure enough, the counter was filled with tasty looking treats - a few savory and many sweet. We ordered two drip coffees and a savory croissant for the morning break. The croissant was slightly small, overbaked... More

What a comfortable, airy, happy place to eat. Contrary to another review, my Danish and lemon bar weren't nearly as sweet as ones you would get in any normal bakery. Our salads were fabulous. They were fresh and good size.

Blue Scorcher is a great bakery using the best ingredients and has some pastries that are both unique (in my experience) and superb. In addition, using all organic ingredients (local whenever possible), Scorcher also makes breakfast and lunch items that are just loaded with good taste. Daily there are pizza by the slice that are among my favorites; also the... More

After reading a recommendation of this bakery, I took the opportunity to visit Blue Scorcher while in Astoria. I went for the baked goods, and picked 5 different items to try. I have to say, I'm impressed on a few levels. Each of my choices was excellent: I started w: a potato nut cinnamon role, which looked good in the... More

I ordered a mocha and blueberry cheese danish, so sweet I couldn't finish either one. If u like sugar thus is the place to go. If you like balanced flavor and good service go elsewhere.

The aroma of baked bread and fresh herbs greets you at the door - makes you feel like you're coming home. I had the beet salad with gorgonzola cheese and warm hazle nuts tossed with a tangy vinegarette - large and satisfying - one of the best salads I've ever had. The bread, especially the wheat tartine and the raisin... More

Blue Scorcher has a definite hippie vibe, with organic-oriented foods and flaky servers. I went there twice on my recent trip. The bread and pastries were nice and fresh, and I appreciated that the coffee cake wasn't overly sweet (you taste the berries, not the sugar). However, both times the nice counter person had no idea what flavors the various... More

We ordered 2 drinks and 2 pastries. They offered to warm the pastries and we enthusiastically said yes. We sat down and waited and waited for our pastries. We went back to the register to inquire and got a blank look. They apparently found our pastries which were barely warm anymore.

The portions here were generous and all the food was fresh. The staff were really friendly and service was quick. The cafe is quite large so it was easy to get a table.
