Ate brunch on a Saturday morning at Cafe Triskell. This is a very small restaurant that provides beautifully prepared food from a balanced French influenced menu, served by friendly, accommodating servers. Various crepes, eggs were perfectly prepared in a timely way. I'm a nut for food being served hot and that was the case here. I will return when I'm... More

The crepes we ordered were excellent. I was amazed of what we ate and we didn't feel stuffed. Wasn't impesed with the pumpkin soup but the crepes were excellent.

Oh, Cafe Triskell, where have you been all my life? This is quickly become our favorite brunch spot in Astoria- cozy and homey with amazing French fare. It helps that we love the staff too. The highlight for us is always the Skewered Brioche French Toast- homemade brioche lightly battered and cooked to perfection, dusted with sugar and served with... More

This place is excellent: which is to be expected from a place that only takes cash and has a limited menu. I've gotten the crepe with pear, goat cheese, almond, and honey twice now-- and I absolutely love it. The fries are awesome as well. Highly recommended. And I love the ambiance.

I wonder who are the people leaving positive reviews for restaurant Triskell. Either they are friends of the owners or the owners themselves signing up under different names. The service was great but the food there was less than average. The crepe I ordered was dried and not very tasty. I much prefer the traditional ones I've eaten before. My... More

As we approached Cafe Triskell, my husband said "we can't go there, it links like a dive." But we were pleasantly surprised. The onion soup was the best we ever had and the chicken cordon blue was scrumptious. And let's not forget the banana crepes with Nutella and chocolate sauce. Good wine list and good service. We'll be back.

This tiny and very casual cafe was fantastic. Really delicious. Nice wine and the French Onion Soup, Croque Madame, and Pear Crepe were truly outstanding. I understand why the soup has been recognized as the best in NYC. Highly recommend. Nice service. And terrific value. Note it is cash only. But at such value, we did not mind that at... More

Savory and sweet crepes cooked to perfection. Lots of other wonderful French dishes, too. I used to LOVE the croque monsieur, but I no longer eat meat so I stick to the crepes. The poached pear crepe is light, sweet and simply delicious. Super small place, but cute and with the trip.

We went here for brunch prior to going to the Museum of the Moving image and they had very good crepes, iced tea and lemonade. I have to say they were quick and I liked the breeze blowing on me. We would have sat outside, but it was raining on and off, so didn't want to get wet. I will... More
