Moonstruck Diner Coming to Astoria

Could it be? Yes, it could.  Moonstruck is coming to our hood - maybe tooonight.  Ok, so this recent stomach virus has made me a little kooky (or I have a bad case of cabin fever).  Anyway, on my way to dinner the other night, I noticed that the old Cafe Kolonaki space has finally got a new tenant - Moonstruck Diner, which has several locations in Manhattan.  I've tried it on occassion and while it's not anything to brag to your mother about, their dishes are simple and consistent - and they serve a 24 hour breakfast, like all good diners.  I remember eating there when being out late in the city and having an intense craving for an omelet.  They make a good one.  I hope Astoria's new location is just as dependable - it looks like we'll discover that soon enough.  Chime in as usual if you know more about it.

Moonstruck Diner - 33-02 Broadway, Astoria NY 11106
N/W Train to Broadway


  1. Goodbye Kolonaki...


  2. Yeah, it's been a long time comin'

  3. I had the rare fortune to be the very first customer of the new Moonstruck, stumbling in at 7:30 this morning. My impressions: service, friendly; portion, appropriate; price, r-r-reasonable.
    My eggs and sausage were perfectly tasty, and though my "grapefruit" juice looked and tasted suspiciously like "orange," it was clearly fresh-squeezed, and included in my breakfast special. Fine by me.
    And the rye toast--extraordinary.
    So far these guys are one for one with me.

  4. Suwweet Sen - glad you had a good experience. I too want to try it soon.

  5. I ate there two times already and am very pleased. They combined the Ethos and Kolonaki spaces and made them into one restaurant. The two rooms have different looks; one rustic with a bar/counter, and the other contemporary and open feel. The food and service was very good, and they deliver! I definitely plan on being a regular there!

  6. Awesome Anon - glad to hear about your great experience. I can't wait to try it myself.
