Everyone knows that a coffee shop is the best place to take someone on a first date if you’re looking to get to know them a bit more.

In Astoria, Queens, there’s an abundance of coffee shops to allure you into their window side chairs, or comfortable booths.

Its regular users are fond of the ambience of the café, with its small spaces, and enjoyable atmosphere, both you and your date are sure to start off a conversation that will keep going for a couple of hours.

For a European twist on your usual coffees, The Coffee Pot is the place for you. The only downside to this particular café is that it doesn’t really have indoor seating, so it’s more of a summer café, where you can sit outside, and enjoy the warm weather with a different kind of coffee that tastes nothing like you’re used to.
