Food is very good. From crepes to salads to sandwiches, all nicely presented and very good. Service is not great.

We went to Café Henri for lunch. They have good selection for lunch. Service was prompt and friendly. They made special arrangments for our vegeterarian members.

There's a trick in New York for deciding between two similar restaurants across the street from one another. Does the waitstaff speak the language of the place the food originates? Do the people in the back? If I'd followed this advice, I wouldn't have sat through one the worst brunch experiences in Queens, à Cafe Henri. What's interesting about Cafe... More

Stopped here to visit our son on our way to LGA. We had stayed in a midtown hotel for 5 days while attending our son's graduation from NYU Law. LIC is one subway stop from Grand Central, but another world away when considering the noise and the pace. Cafe Henri is across the street from Vernon Jackson and was almost... More

The breakfast at Cafe Henri is quite a notch up from most diners. We ate breakfast here several days and the whole family was satisfied. Recommended.

Outstanding little cafe. Great service, atmosphere and food. Wonderful pastries. We had the French toast omelettes and crepe in our party. No one was disappointed. We love this place.

Cute place, friendly staff. The food was good, good enough for a local cafe. I had Mussels, the taste was good, tasty broth. The mussels were well cleaned, properly prepared. Albeit their size was quite small. The onion soup was okay, room for improvement. I would not travel far, nor make a special trip for lunch

It was odd to have to squeeze through to get to our seats. The place is tight with tables set near each other - not fun if you're claustrophobic. But once we sat we were excited to try a few different things from the menu for brunch. When the coffee got there, it was a wonderful surprise that it came... More
