January 18, Staff Report
Passengers arriving or departing from the Kew Gardens Long Island Rail Road station will no longer have to travel far to get a cup of coffee.
After six months of renovating the space where Odradeks Coffee was once located, the new proprietor of 82-60 Austin St. held a grand opening of “Expresso Cafe” yesterday. The name of the shop is a play on words referring to the LIRR station that is less than six feet away.
The hours of operation for the remainder of the winter season are Monday through Thursday, 5:00 am to 8:00 pm, Friday from 5:00 am to 1:00 pm and Sunday from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. The cafe will be closed on Saturdays for Shabbat.
Cups of espresso will be served from a state-of-the-art Faema coffee machine, while pastries, desserts, sandwiches, organic fruits and garden salads will also be offered. Customers will also have access to free Wi-Fi.
