The Queens Kickshaw

This place has been on my list for years, but laziness and inconvenience has prevented me from venturing out to Astoria for it. After a visit to the Noguchi Museum yesterday, we popped in to The Queens Kickshaw for some cortados. I am also a sucker for grilled cheese and tomato soup so how could I resist?






Overall a fine spot. I enjoyed the food more so than my cortado, which had a somewhat bitter aftertaste. I can't really judge the place based on one coffee drink, but I'd definitely go back for the space and grilled cheese alone.

  2. I absolutely love the way you photograph food and the way you use light is always inspiring to me! Are these all shot with film or your iPhone, or a mix? Oh how I want to grow up to be you. :)

  6. Lovely! How are you finding your Sony A7R? You're one of my favourite photographers and I'd love to get your thoughts - I'm looking to grow up and enter into the world of full frame!

  7. Dear Alice,

    I'm loving your Instagram photos a lot! And I've tried to get the same natural tone as you, but somehow it seems impossible. I use Snapseed and VSCO. Will you please give me some tips on how to get a more natural tone? Thanks a lot.

  8. I'm amazed how many good coffee places there are in NYC. The first and only proper coffee place in my little town opened a few months ago. It was so darn difficult to fork out £2.20 for awful coffee.

  9. I've always wondered, did you need to ask for permission when taking food/cafe photos?
