Sanford’s Affordable Weekend Brunch in Astoria

Posted on March 14, 2010. Filed under: American/Nouveau, Astoria, Brunch, Burgers, Cheap Dining | Tags: , , |

Elvis would have gone crazy for Sanford’s peanut butter banana pancakes. As he isn’t here to try them, I ate them in his honor. Usually packed on a weekend morning, this popular Astoria restaurant was once a humble diner rid of any lines or long waits. Now with a sleek makeover and a revived menu, the place is bustling with hungry patrons from the moment they open the doors. Sanford’s has been a community staple since 1922, but has recently experienced a surge in business following their renovation last year. Customers don’t seem to mind the 20 minute wait as they cram into the restaurant’s tiny entryway on a Saturday morning. The amiable staff and appetizing aromas that flow effortlessly from the kitchen leave no doubt in the diner’s mind that it is a well-run operation. Perusing the menu you will find classic dishes as well as a few inventive selections like the banana pecan whole wheat pancakes, crab cake benedict and the charity burger, of which a portion of the profits are donated to the Ronald Mc Donald House. The whole wheat pancakes are fluffy and rich, smothered in fresh bananas and crunchy pecans, while the more savory crab cake benedict is made with 100% real crab meat. A weekend meal wouldn’t be complete without your choice of cocktail with a free refill, compliments of the chef. At Sanford’s the $13 prix fix brunch allows you to choose from either champagne, wine, mimosa, bloody mary, or a bellini in addition to a free bottomless cup of coffee.  The atmosphere is hip and draws fellow diners of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, reflecting the essence of Queens life. Diners will find their plates graced with deliciously well-prepared food of generous proportions that will leave merely a dent in their wallets, providing enough cash leftover to ensure many repeat visits.
