We are taking extra precautions to keep our guests and staff safe during the COVID-19 public health emergency. Here's what we are doing:

  • We have increased our sanitation efforts and continue to follow CDC, NYS and industry recommendations and guidelines.

  • There are protective barriers at the register, and decals/marked lines to guide 6 ft social distancing.

  • Our HVAC system has been inspected and upgraded to Merv13 filters.

  • Hand sanitizer is located at the counter, front and back doors, and customer bathroom.

  • As always we offer contactless payment and provide sterilized stylus for use on the iPad.

Please note: some of the self-serve items such as creamers, liquid sweeteners, water urn, and condiments have been removed to limit contact, however they are still available if you ask at the front counter.

Our staff are people too so we ask that you wear your mask if you are not vaccinated when entering/exiting the cafe, when ordering at the counter, and when being served at your table. We understand that not everyone is comfortable with indoor dining - please do not hesitate to order delivery through Grubhub/SeamlessPostmates, UberEats and DoorDash or as always you may call ahead for pick-up orders at 718-729-7708.

indoor/outdoor seating

Outdoor seating is available on our covered backyard patio or out front on the sidewalk. Please note: pets are not allowed on the patio per the Dept of Health restrictions. Indoor seating is now permitted . Due to limited seating we ask that you are mindful of the length of your stay to an hour and a half at the maximum. Per New York State restrictions all guests who are dining-in must have their temperature checked prior to being seated. Contact information for one person of each group is required to be collected for contact tracing, if necessary.

Please follow these mandated requirements to keep our staff and other guests safe and feeling secure:

  • Guests must stay seated. 

  • Please wear your mask when entering and exiting the cafe or when making way to/ 
    from the restroom.

  • Keep tables and chairs in place, 6 ft socially distanced.

You may leave your dishes and glasses on the table. We will clear and sanitize

the tables, chairs and any condiments that were brought out to you.

Thanks for your patronage and understanding! ~ Cheers!
