Astor Bake Shop in Astoria now open

I've been waiting for this new establishment to open for awhile now and have to say it was worth the wait. While the muffins, cupcakes, cookies, etc all look great, I was looking forward to their lunch offerings since I've pretty well exhausted the few other options in the neighborhood.
They do specialty burgers and sandwiches. I was intrigued by the sound of a lentil burger with horse radish sauce, mixed greens, tomato and pickled onions on a Portuguese roll. While waiting for it I was offered samples of their blueberry and carrot/orange muffins (very good). The burger was moist and delicious, the horse radish not too overwhelming and the pickled onions were an amazing addition.
I look forward to trying the rest of the lunch menu, and an occasional cupcake.
Located at 12-23 Astoria Blvd (at the corner of 14th St.), across from the library.
