New in Sunnyside

Parrot Coffee on Queens Blvd. at 46th St, just opened yesterday. For those not familiar with the Parrot Coffee (longtime exclusive to Ridgewood) they have cold cuts, many kinds of cheese, grocery items, olive bar, refrigerators with plenty of goodies - homemade taramasalata and eggplant-tomato spread, puff & phyllo dough, butters etc.
Not much unlike Massis and it doesn't appear to be fully stocked yet, but much more conveniently located right at the 46th St. 7 stop. I was told that they'll be open until 10 pm 365 days a year.

In other news, the newly expanded supermarket on the S side of Queens Blvd. (Key Food or whatever they call themselves now, they kept changing the name) is making a very good prosciutto/ lard bread. Comes in a small size also.

  1. Thanks for the heads up. We saw the new signage but didn't think it would be open for a while. Will be checking it out after work tomorrow!

      I don't think they're fully stocked yet, although the store is by no means empty, I just think they have more goodies to spread around. I'm really happy they opened here.

    2. That lard bread is AMAZING! I've started calling Pavlov's bread bc it never fails to make my mouth water.

        The best I've had was from Cherry Hill in Sheepshead Bay but I admit that this is coming pretty close. Counting the trip, it's fantastic to have this in the 'hood.
