Each of us had a different dish for brunch. Each was excellent. Price was great, diverse crowd with a laid back feeling.

This mediterranean influenced restaurant is in my neighborhood and is my go to place to take friends and family when they come to visit. The food is fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. They also serve great mixed drinks. This place is fun all around.

Everything on the menu is delicious. They prepare many local and unusual dishes. And the best and biggest fresh bowl of guacamole I have seen in years. The decor is pleasantly funky. The reclining nude (painting) over the bar sets an artsy mood.

This is my Mecca. The day I walked into Monica's Cafe Bar many years ago, I knew I loved Astoria and belonged in Queens. I've spent countless hours of my life in this place. From the glowing nude portrait to the crazy 70s furniture and always eccentric music - the atmosphere is always interesting. The mixed, diverse crowd is perfect for people watching - Euro, cool, but never hipster in the annoying Brooklyn sense. The Greek frappe-style iced coffees are a staple, as well as the cappuccinos and espresso Martinis. The Cretian food is solid, fresh, and health-conscious (I like the lahmajun, the Lebanese salad, and the brunch omelets) Don’t expect doting service here, though. They’re very European style and you should never be in a hurry here!
