Good place for panini and crostini that come in many varieties. They have a cute outside area as well. Wines and beers on the menu as well. My panino with prosciutto, zola and fig spread was perhaps a tad too sweet. The bread is pressed crisp and is delicious! Good waitstaff.

Called in for Lunch. The place is spotless with very friendly staff(served by Chris) . Served promptly and a good choice of food on offer with regular top ups of ice cold water. My panini was delicious and we also had the flour less chocolate cake which was so rich and gooey. Bathroom was clean and I liked the choice... More

Loved it! Went there four times! Try the crostinis with egg salad! Yumyyyyyy!!! Also the paninis were great but the bacon, egg salad and spicy mayo crostini is to die for!

Nice sandwich shop. The food is very good. Small place but it's worth it if you're in the area. The sandwiches won't disappoint

How can a sandwich be so. Frickin. Good? Not sure. Think it's magical combinations and winning ingredients. All served in a low key atmosphere with super staff.

Wow - the brunch paninis were warm and wonderful - perfect for a cold day. And the variety and flavors from the crostinis were also fantastic. Wait staff was attentive and helpful. Can't go wrong!

This is one of our favorite places to eat in Astoria. The prices are good and the food is excellent. We've been a few times and I'm sure we'll be there again soon.

Great food with VERY generous portions. The only mistake we made was ordering too much. One panini is big enought for two!

Unique take on the traditional panini sandwich. The sandwiches were large for the price and very filling. My only criticism is that in general you expect a few chips or some kind of side item with a sandwich instead of an a la carte style. I would definitely go back, there were a few sandwiches on the menu that looked... More
