Cafes/Coffee Shops, etc. in Eastern Queens? (and maybe Brooklyn)

HJS1999 | Feb 8, 201110:35 AM

I'm looking for non-bar first date ideas in eastern Queens that are something less than dinner: e.g. coffee shops (but not Starbucks), tea houses, desert places.

I have lots of ideas for Manhattan, Astoria, Flushing, etc. but I want ideas that are closer to where I live and work in downtown Jamaica, where I've not discovered much that fits the bill.

In terms of neighborhoods, I'd like to keep it subway accessible and fairly far east, so Kew Gardens, Forest Hills, Jamaica, etc., (think E/F/R and tell me about the great place at e.g. 75th avenue) but places east of Broadway Junction on the J and Z which also end up in Jamaica might work too.

Jackson Heights/Roosevelt Ave is O.K., but really farther west than I'm looking for (and easier to research.)

Let me know if I need to expand.
