Sunday breakfast/brunch near CitiField?

ChrisPlatt Sep 6, 2010 05:01 PM

My group of long suffering Mets fans is going to a Sunday afternoon game in a couple weeks.
We'd like to meet up and enjoy some relatively inexpensive but decent fare before the game.
There will be some teenagers present, so menu should have some American standards.
We will be arriving in two cars, so a parking lot or ample on-street parking is a must.
I recall there are a number of diners on Astoria Boulevard. Which one is best?
Or something else to recommend perhaps? Remember, it's breakfast...

    Buccaneer Diner is on Astoria Blvd. Not a great diner but passable.
    Jackson Hole, on the service road of the Grand Central would probably be a good option.

    Buccaneer Diner
    93-01 Astoria Blvd, Queens, NY 11369

      not sure what direction you're driving from..but nearby in east elmhurst--is Cannell Patisserie..if you haven't been it's the best french bakery in Queens--really delicious stuff..here's a link for their breakfast pastries..very good croissants..it's in a strip mall parking lot..so parking is no problem--but not sure if you want to fill up on sweet stuff and coffee's---

        Great sandwiches and quiches, as well.
