Not having Bliss cafe for the last week was a real downer for Kew Gardens. Our only cafe, place to sit and read the paper with good music, people and atmosphere, place to get a good coffee or tea, bagels and muffins in the morning and sandwiches and soup for lunch, a place to sit down and relax or quickly run off to your train with your goodies. After a small hiatus due to some minor building related problems Bliss is back on the scene and better than ever. The changes they have implemented while closed make it much more attractive and clean now, especially that warm weather is upon us and their outdoor tables are a great spot to hang out at. Bliss has also started a Spring Special for the month of May for its customers giving them 10% off their bills! Just mention that you read this article!
Also, Bliss's hours have been extended for the weekends and they will be open past 9pm every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.
One more exciting thing - the owner is thinking of having a small wine and cheese board selection for evenings. So, we are doing a small survey for them in order to gauge interest in this. Please respond here with your thoughts of having a small selection of wines, and several cheese plates with bread and fruit, etc, available at Bliss in the evenings. I for one am ALL over it and I really hope she does it soon.
Bliss Gourmet Cafe is located at the Kew Gardens LIRR station at 82-60 Austin Street. (718) 849-7647
