Good place for a salad and cafe food. Pleasant. Nice to sit outside. Near to a number of Astoria attractions. We'd go again.

Monika's is an old favorite. This place is so cute and has outdoor seating. I usually get the mozzarella sandwich, which I LOVE, but this time I ordered the butternut squash salad. YUM. So fresh and tasty. Perfect for a summer afternoon. The frozen lemonade...More

A very pleasant and relaxed establishment with nice indoor and outdoor seating. Prices are reasonable and every item was delicious. The (complimentary) Table Water bottle is wonderful. This is the place to go when you want a casual but well served informal meal.
