Located in Astoria, Queens, The Queens Kickshaw is a neighborhood spot serving coffee, cocktails, beer, cider, and comfort food with a twist.

We opened in March of 2011. It is a labor of love for partners in life and business Ben Sandler and Jennifer Lim. They have been living in Astoria since 2008, and wanted to create a place and community that reflected their love for their neighborhood.



We are proud to serve some fantastic products from these New York based farmers and food artisans:

Argyle Cheese Farmer (Argyle, NY) - buttermilk
