Four of us had a mini vacation in Astoria for a 3 day weekend. We were too tired after driving from California for a night on the town so we did take out. They got all of our orders right and had them ready when...promised. The clam chowder was thick and delicious and everyone agreed the crab fettuccini was absolutely delicious. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their appetizers, salads and entrees. Look forward to eating in their dining room on our next visit.More

Walked in, ordered up front and stepped back out to eat at the only table outside. Service a little slow, but we didn't care because the staff is attentive and it was a beautiful sunny day. Surrounded by potted plants in the heart of old...Astoria. What could be better? Lunch! We had iced tea (which was refilled) and jerk chicken quesadilla. Lots of flavor! The salsa is great. We've eaten here many times. The staff is always wonderful, food is colorful and delicious. They respect COVID-19 restrictions but they are not overt about it.More

Great environment and amazingly friendly staff! All CDC guidelines were being followed and it was clean. I was spaced away from others. The food was good, different combinations. However, the dessert was truly the best I’ve ever had. It was great and I’d go back...again over and over for the dessert. They also had a lemonade that was tasty and thirst quenching.More

Not a big place but nice. You order at the counter and they bring it out to you. The menu changes and I'll tell you that we weren't offered everything that is on the menu on this page. They do do a lot of quesadillas....I'm not a fan so I had the seafood salad with a bowl of clam chowder. The salad was good, fresh but nothing to write home about. The clam chowder could've used a little bacon and more potatoes but it was good as is. Not spectacular. Another friend had the tacos and said they were great with lots of flavor. Another friend had a croissant sandwich and salad and she said it was good too. They shine with their desserts though. We shared a Lemon Shaker Pie and a piece of Carrot Cake. The lemon shaker pie is made with thin slices of lemon and lots of sugar. I'd never had it before and it was really really lemony! A bit too much on it's own but they serve it with a raspberry sauce and some whipped cream and together, it's heaven. Now I can only tell you that the carrot cake was amazing. I got another piece just to take home because I didn't want to share it! Very friendly servers and service was great. So fun to peruse the shops around the restaurant after lunch. We'll probably be back especially to try some of the other desserts they have.More

The food here is prepared well and is tasty. We have enjoyed the fire-roasted tomato pasta and the quesadillas, as well as the desserts. Salads are just OK. Prices are very reasonable—well under $20 for most entrees and under $10 for appetizers. And you order...at the counter, with the food brought to you by pleasant servers. The backroom has comfortable chairs and a sofa, with posters of Marilyn Monroe.More

Had a relatively late dinner. The accomadated two of us an hour before close. We listened to about 45 min live folk music by two gentlemen sitting just steps from our table. The food was five star and very tasty and well presented, along with...the help staff being super friendly and accomodating. Everytime we are in Astoria, we have to swing by this fabulous place.More

Stopped for lunch on a long drive day. Wife had the Pacific Shrimp Quesadilla and a cup of chowder. I went with the Kick Ass Cajun Quesadilla and the chowder. Both were tasty, but the Kick Ass was our pick, with its popping heat, while...the other was much milder. Chowder was outstanding. Interesting decor. Certainly worth the stop.More

Reviews sounded interesting so we made our way here visiting from PDX. We were enchanted by the lunch menu, so many interesting combinations of salads, quesidillas and sandwitches, hard to choose. Wife got the salmon burger so tasty and I got the bay shrimp, smoked...turkey, provolone cheese, bacon lettuce tomato on grilled sourdough bread-stacked high...oh my I gobbled it up! And splurged on a bowl of out of this world clam chowder made daily...I was in heaven! Decore in here was retro and cool; esp the Marilyn (Monroe) lounge in back dressed up in style for a cool ambience for conversation. Its a small cafe, well worth the visit and the food absolutely top notch. Will be our go to lunch place for future Astoria visits. (We went to T Pauls Supper Club for dinner tonight- I believe run by the same proprietor- and it was excellent food also!)More

Ate here while visiting Astoria and liked it. Our service was very good, food came out fast. My wife had the Ginger Salmon and it was very good. I had the special, which consisted of 6 ravioli for $20, very disappointed in the portion size,...but the flavor was great.More
