Quaint bar/restaurant Sunnyside

 Sunnyside, 46-10 Skillman Ave (917) 779-9220

Quaints atmosphere is warm, the service is friendly, the food is inexpensive, but overall it’s just, simply- promising. This bistro offers the locals of Sunnyside a place to gather for a casual brunch on a sunday afternoon, a nice dinner in the evening or a relaxing drink on the patio. Unfortunately, there is much left to be desired on the menu.The meal selections are sparse and the quality is ok, good at best. This cafe/bar has all the potential of a diamond in the rough, but doesn’t live up to its shine. The unusual interior sports a rustic wooden floor, rust colored walls and beautiful pews that once sat religiously in a near-by synagogue, now converted into benches. Waitstaff is sufficiantly attentive and pleasant. The bar and wine selections are adequate- and the after dinner drinks are decent. The dinner menu offers about six different entree choices and the brunch menu offers a few staple egg & toast dishes, caesar salad, BLT, and banana french toast. Both menus lack in ambition, with a little inventiveness, Quaint could go so much further. Alas- it seems they traded free range omelets for instant scrambled eggs. It also shuns the popular prix fix brunch so beware, ordering a la carte can add up. The perks of Quaint are its unique decor, outside patio and friendly service.

I totally agree with you assessment of the restaurant — beautiful place but lacking in culinary originality.
