a new cafe opened up on 37th Ave and 79th street
called Cafe Grecco, I think, serving various kinds of
coffee and pastries, sorbet, and gelato. Also they have
food, including salad, sandwiches, and individual
pizzas; but I only went there for coffee.

I didn't think it really was as good as the
ubiquitous Greek? cafes in Astoria. I had a rasberry
tart with custard filling; it didn't have much flavor
and the crust was very crumbly. And the coffee (I had
espresso) was fair.

It doesn't really have any competition to speak of in
the neighborhood; there is an italian bakery and cafe
next door to Urugaya which I have never been in but my
wife says is bad. And of course there are many, many
central american bakery/cafes all over the neighborhood
that are all over the quality spectrum. I don't really
know if Grecco is in direct competition with those
places; they serve a totally different style of pastry,
and they usually don't have tables or table service,
which Grecco has both.
