Meli Cafe is Open

Meli Cafe & Bakery is finally open.  After watching its progress pretty much the whole summer, I was glad to see it's finally come to life a couple of weeks ago.  My curiosity got the best of me, as always, and I walked in to see what it was about. 

In a nutshell, it looked a bit underwhelming with the display not fully stocked, but I also went in at the end of the day so that could've played a big role.  From what I saw, they sell simple cookies, doughnuts, coffee and these really pretty coffee cakes that caught my eye.  They looked gorgeous, perfectly round in shape with a nicely browned exterior.  I wouldn't mind taking a bite out of this and plan to try it soon. 

In the meantime, if anyone has any valuable feedback to add about this new bakery, please chime in.

Meli Cafe & Bakery - 32-02 30th Avenue, Astoria, NY 11102

N/W Train to 30th Avenue


  1. They also have bagels, muffins, breakfast platters, a deli section, etc. Usually have some deals each day.

    They have been doing a small coffee and plain bagel for $1.50 deal, but be warned that they mean PLAIN bagel. Nothing on it or anything or you are getting charged full price.

  2. Thanks for the tips Jonah. Noted :)

  3. The owner also makes his homemade honey - comes from upstate - hence the name Meli (honeybee). Great muffins!

  4. The doughnuts are pretty wonderful, a bit thicker than at most places, but still very moist and tender. I went in before they had officially opened and they gave me and my girlfriend a couple of free glazed ones for our curiousity. I haven't ventured further than that, but they seem a cut above most of the other bakeries on 30th Ave.
