We Heart Astoria twitter follower forwarded this photo he took of a new coffee shop/cafe that will open on Crescent Street near 30th Avenue soon. It’s a little hard to see but you can make out blue counters, some dark wood floors, exposed brick, and more. The space used to be home to Sleek Styles, a hair salon.

Via the Department of Buildings, we see that they are in the midst of an estimated $30K renovation. Their plans include putting down new flooring, installing a new dishwasher, and no doubt new fixtures and furniture.

It’s near the hospital so I wonder if they will have late, late hours so that people who are there waiting for a friend or loved one in the midst of hospital business can have a place to hang out. We’ve reached out to the lease holder and will pass on more information as we get it.

UPDATE: We heard back from the owners! Here is what they told us:

We will be offering all types of coffee beverages, espresso, etc.  fresh breakfast pastries, and a few choices of fresh sandwiches, fresh juices along with several choices for cold beverages. We proudly will be serving La Colombe for all of our coffee products.

They hope to be open in a couple of weeks, but the way things work in NYC, it could be later. They are really happy to be living in Astoria and are thrilled to be opening a coffee shop here—and yes, they LOVE coffee! The name of the cafe is Caffino.

so excited for this! the astorian gods have heard our coffee shop prayers! now I just want to know what “Green Apple Cafe” is a couple doors down from Caffino…it’s been there for like two years now and never opened. just in this semi-construction space…I feel like it is a front for some money-laundering scheme.

Super stoked to be getting La Colombe in the neighbourhood! Hands down one of the best coffees available here. Fingers crossed that it has plenty of seats and night owl hours.

If anything, Astoria needs a good coffee shop. If the town can support it, they should be around for a long time.

I love that this is happening. I live right around the corner and aside from the barbershop, mediocre pizza and dry cleaner, that half block has been a real rotating line up of uninteresting businesses. Here’s hoping it’s open late!
