"Divine grilled cheese" taken "to the next level" and other "creative", fromage-focused eats are the specialty of this all-day, "all-vegetarian" Astoria "gem"; its "serious" coffee drinks and craft beers are a "huge plus", as are the "reasonable prices", late-night menu and "hip", "touch-of-Brooklyn" vibe.
The young and young at heart come to this Astoria coffee and beer bar for fancy grilled cheese at decidedly unfancy prices. Though the sandwich formula is familiar, creative combinations, such as Gouda with black bean hummus, guava jam and pickled jalapeños on brioche or Great Hill Blue cheese with prune jam and pear on cranberry-walnut bread, leave dad's cheddar and butter on white in the dust. The Queens Kickshaw's urban-rustic interior design would be just as at home in hipster Brooklyn as on this commercial stretch of Broadway in Queens: The tables are communal, the soundtrack is indie rock, and nearly everything is made from repurposed materials, including the vintage fire extinguisher that supports taps on the reclaimed-wood bar and a chandelier made from an old-fashioned sewing machine. Twenty- and thirty-somethings start sipping pour-over coffee in the morning and stay late for live music acts (check the website for the schedule), a deep selection of craft ales and ciders and a carefully curated wine list that highlights lesser-known varietals. If a caffeine fix and a boozy beverage appeal, go for both during weekend brunch.
