I've lived in marvelous wonderful Astoria for 4 years now - off Newtown Ave. I've found (and often thanks to help from the boards here) some of the best restaurants in the city here. But there's still one thing missing from my roster, and now that I'm going to be freelancing from home, is becoming crucial:
Anyone know any good coffee shops in the Astoria/LIC area? I'm excluding, for my purposes, either the sprawling eurocafes of Broadway and 30th ave, or Starbuckses. Which leaves me with: Freezepeach. Which I love! But I was wondering if there were more. Someplace with character and tranquility, good teas and coffees and maybe even a couch or two. Something like the Tea Lounge in Park Slope.
