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.

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

The paninis are imaginative, well prepared and large. You can almost count on taking home tomorrow's lunch. The beer and wine selection is good for small place and their outside patio is quite pleasant. Value is really noteworthy
