Web Reviews & Ratings
The appeal of Grand Café, located on 30th Avenue and 37th Street in Astoria, is absolutely timeless. For many years now, Grand Café has been the go-to spot for good food and even better atmosphere.
Grand Café is a place where everyone, from hipsters and foodies to families with kids, can feel comfortable and find that delicious brunch, lunch or dinner. The cafe is spacious and he ambiance is cool and chic. The décor calls to mind an upscale, hip tavern or café in Athens.
The menu is American, but many of the dishes served here have a diverse Mediterranean flair. You can order up a basket of expertly prepared fries or "up" the indulgence factor and try Grand's signature Greek Fries, topped with a generous portion of crumbled Feta and oregano. The kitchen also does an interesting watermelon salad with arugula and grilled Halloumi cheese. The salad is dressed with a Greek-style lemon vinaigrette. Tasty temptations include a full array of Burgers, sandwiches (try the Greek Toast with Loukaniko sausage and goat cheese ), wraps and paninis.
Appetizer selections range from Mac and cheese, crispy calamari, veggie spring rolls and chicken kabob to an unexpectedly sensational margherita pizza as well as the organic soup of the day. Entrée choices are hearty and come with two sides. Selections include grilled chicken, sautéed shrimp in a divine garlic and butter sauce, pan-seared salmon, chicken cutlet parm and penne a la vodka with house-made garlic bread.
Grand café is well known all over Astoria for their delicious and budget friendly $16 Brunch. It's available on holidays and weekends from 9 AM to 4 PM. Brunch includes your choice of entrée from the special brunch menu, along with unlimited refills of either coffee or tea, (hot or iced). On top of that, you may pick out a refreshing juice or delight in a cocktail, such as a Mimosa, Bellini, a Bloody Mary or a glass of champagne. Very, very cool.
No matter what your taste in breakfast is, the chefs at Grand Café have got you covered with savory plates of eggs benedict, omelettes, and breakfast burritos. Want to sweeten things up just a little bit? Then try their French toast or chocolate chip pancakes. You might be interested to know that the owners of Grand Café are also the team behind Ginger Organic cold juice press, which is located right next door to the restaurant.
Ginger Organic offers a dozen good for you cold press juice varieties as well as organic salads (the most popular is the Quinoa with dried apricots and cranberries) and vegan soups. Organic and great tasting sandwiches and wraps highlight the ginger menu. The most awesome thing about the place, though, is the Organic Greek Yogurt Bar. Addicting toppings include honey, baklava crumbles, sour cherry compote, blueberries and chocolate chips. Smaller than its twin eatery, Ginger Organic is no less welcoming. It has a warm, rustic look and the super friendly staff are always happy to explain the various healthy ingredients that go into the juice combos, organic shots and smoothies.
Grand Café and Ginger Organic are an unbeatable combination when it comes to good food made with a creative twist and great value.
Grand Cafe - Astoria, NY. Hip, trendy and stylish, Grand Cafe Lounge in Astoria has been voted as one of the best brunch and cafe spots in Queens. Grand Cafe also offers the best casual Dining in Astoria.
This is a good place to people watch and sit outside when it is warm. Their happy hour and pricing is on the higher end, but they have a good brunch. Most of the places on 30th Avenue that are great to hang out at, have average or below average food anyway.
