Decided to have Saturday brunch here and glad we did. There was a little bit of a wait when we arrived around 11am but only about 15 minutes. The venue is quite small and there are lots of tables in a small area and was quite loud. Saying that though the atmosphere was still enjoyable. The menu was good and... More

This is a small and usually crowded restaurant. The food is good. Good omelets. The atmosphere is ok. Not fancy but decent food.

Hard to get a table on the weekends but if you manage to, this is a great spot for breakfast or a leisurely lunch

I have eaten only brunch and dinner here, but I have to say that brunch is always outstanding and dinner has been hit or miss. I love their Benedict either with bacon or smoked salmon. I appreciate that they always include a great little salad to help cut through all the fattiness of the Benedict. If you order OJ, it... More

Food is very good. From crepes to salads to sandwiches, all nicely presented and very good. Service is not great.

There's a trick in New York for deciding between two similar restaurants across the street from one another. Does the waitstaff speak the language of the place the food originates? Do the people in the back? If I'd followed this advice, I wouldn't have sat through one the worst brunch experiences in Queens, à Cafe Henri. What's interesting about Cafe... More

Stopped here to visit our son on our way to LGA. We had stayed in a midtown hotel for 5 days while attending our son's graduation from NYU Law. LIC is one subway stop from Grand Central, but another world away when considering the noise and the pace. Cafe Henri is across the street from Vernon Jackson and was almost... More
