As a bakery (and baked goods) lover, I find it pretty baffling that consistently mediocre to bad quality Martha’s Country Bakery would be named the best in Astoria.

So glad to see my jams Yoga Agora, Ornella, Pye, Martha’s, & The Brass Owl! And I ordered Sac’s pizza last night.
Oddly 60 Beans is the only new cafe in Astoria that I didn’t fall in love with (OK Cafe & Astoria Coffee get my biz), but I’m glad it works for someone ;)
