I teach at Laguardia Comm College, and one thing for sure I can say, there is absolutely no decent food or coffee within a 2-3 block radius of the school buildings. Everyone ends up eating at the lousy places in a row across the street, one worse than the next, or the great standby the Van Dam Diner. The Diner has drinkable coffee, and okay eggs, but they are not cheap! Desperately needed is a great inexpensive coffee and good sandwich and salad , pasta place for lunch and dinner....A middle eastern restaurant would make a killing there, the only problem seems to be finding a space, and it would need to be on the south side of QB, definitely not north. Cannot for the life of me figure out why a cafe type place has not opened in the empty bank space. This area is crawling with hungry students and faculty that would appreciate an ethnic, and diverse menu, with good solid food, at affordable prices. Please spread the word!!!
