Meli Cafe & Bakery Came and Went

Last weekend when I was running errands on 30th Ave, I noticed that the short lived Meli Cafe & Bakery was papered up again.  It only seemed like yesterday when it looked this but for a very different reason - when it was opening. 

Meg confirmed the same suspicion the other day and then I got further confirmation from one of my Tweeples.  Feel free to chime in if you know more about it and if it's going to come back or what will take its place.  Personally, I still miss Pinocchio and would love to see it back.  I crave their gyros, and I know that a lot of people really loved their pizza. 

See you later Meli - do let us know if you'll return.

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

N/Q Train to 30th Avenue


  1. Didn't pinocchio reopen across the street as pitaria?

  2. They had a sign up last week that said they were temporarily closed for construction. Seemed a little weird to me. What kind of construction would a relatively new place need to do that required papering up the windows and shutting down for an extended period of time.

  3. Yeah but Pitaria isn't the same. I heard not so great things about it. I miss Pinocchio.

    Jonah - I agree. It's totally fishy. Construction can mean one of 2 things. a. construction, b. the place is done. We'll see...

  4. I miss Pinocchio too. I stand by my opinion they they have the best pizza ever. Sadness.

    This is a shame. I really like them. They had great bagels, of all things. Nice people and I was really happy they were there. I do hope they are doing some remodeling. They seemed to be doing well. Very odd.

    I heard a rumor that it is going to be a Burger King.
