Kicking It at Kickshaw

It's report writing time in my neck of the woods city. Three times a year, I buckle down and type for hours and hours about my lovely second grade friends. Thankfully, my school lets us work from home on election day to (try to) get them all done. 

I spent most of the day working at my favorite Astoria coffee shop, The Queens Kickshaw. There are so many things I love about the Kickshaw... 
Fancy cappuccinos...
My own personal nook...
The most delicious egg sandwich (ricotta, gruyere crisp, thyme, and maple hot sauce on brioche)...
The perfect atmosphere...
Curried pumpkin seeds...
My love...
And the most delicious pour over coffee (Honduras Finca Liquidambar Catuai)...
Reports can be stressful, but the perfect setting can really make all the difference.

  2. That would make reports WAY more fun! Quarterly progress? Or something else?

  3. I LOVE Queens Kickshaw. Only gone there for lunch; never gone specifically to use as a coffee shop, although their coffee is the bomb. If you go in the afternoon, you've really got to try the black-bean-gouda-pickled jalapeno sandwich. It's ridiculous (in the best possible way).

  6. I've been dying to get there, but just haven't made it yet! I was actually supposed to go on Friday but started coming down with something so we just ordered pizzas from Vesta (not too shabby, either!). But I've heard the grilled cheese is awesome here.
