This is a place airstream trailer with the funny nickels should stop. Find out how many of those funny nickels buy here. Better wait until you have a twenty dollar bill. Overpriced. Return? No. Recommend? No.

The baked goods are second to none! I heard about this place on NPR on one of the cooking shows and had to try it. I can't remember having such delicious baked goods since I was in Europe. I may have to move to Astoria!

This restaurant makes me want to move to Astoria! The outside (Ft George Bldg) is so cool, and you open the door and are accosted with the aroma of breads, coffee and baked goods. It is rustic industrial inside, not huge, but open and casual. Very comfortable. We used wifi while we were there. There is such a unique and... More

The portions weren't as big as I would like, but the food was great. The food is a little eclectic and unique. My kids mentioned there was no meat on the menu; so a vegan type menu. We definitely aren't vegan, but the food was great and even the kids loved it.

A quick stop on a late afternoon produced few choices for our sweet tooth but intrigued us enough to come by the next morning. Sure enough, the counter was filled with tasty looking treats - a few savory and many sweet. We ordered two drip coffees and a savory croissant for the morning break. The croissant was slightly small, overbaked... More

What a comfortable, airy, happy place to eat. Contrary to another review, my Danish and lemon bar weren't nearly as sweet as ones you would get in any normal bakery. Our salads were fabulous. They were fresh and good size.

Blue Scorcher is a great bakery using the best ingredients and has some pastries that are both unique (in my experience) and superb. In addition, using all organic ingredients (local whenever possible), Scorcher also makes breakfast and lunch items that are just loaded with good taste. Daily there are pizza by the slice that are among my favorites; also the... More

After reading a recommendation of this bakery, I took the opportunity to visit Blue Scorcher while in Astoria. I went for the baked goods, and picked 5 different items to try. I have to say, I'm impressed on a few levels. Each of my choices was excellent: I started w: a potato nut cinnamon role, which looked good in the... More

I ordered a mocha and blueberry cheese danish, so sweet I couldn't finish either one. If u like sugar thus is the place to go. If you like balanced flavor and good service go elsewhere.

The aroma of baked bread and fresh herbs greets you at the door - makes you feel like you're coming home. I had the beet salad with gorgonzola cheese and warm hazle nuts tossed with a tangy vinegarette - large and satisfying - one of the best salads I've ever had. The bread, especially the wheat tartine and the raisin... More
