I have eaten only brunch and dinner here, but I have to say that brunch is always outstanding and dinner has been hit or miss. I love their Benedict either with bacon or smoked salmon. I appreciate that they always include a great little salad to help cut through all the fattiness of the Benedict. If you order OJ, it... More

Food is very good. From crepes to salads to sandwiches, all nicely presented and very good. Service is not great.

There's a trick in New York for deciding between two similar restaurants across the street from one another. Does the waitstaff speak the language of the place the food originates? Do the people in the back? If I'd followed this advice, I wouldn't have sat through one the worst brunch experiences in Queens, à Cafe Henri. What's interesting about Cafe... More

Stopped here to visit our son on our way to LGA. We had stayed in a midtown hotel for 5 days while attending our son's graduation from NYU Law. LIC is one subway stop from Grand Central, but another world away when considering the noise and the pace. Cafe Henri is across the street from Vernon Jackson and was almost... More

The breakfast at Cafe Henri is quite a notch up from most diners. We ate breakfast here several days and the whole family was satisfied. Recommended.

Outstanding little cafe. Great service, atmosphere and food. Wonderful pastries. We had the French toast omelettes and crepe in our party. No one was disappointed. We love this place.

Cute place, friendly staff. The food was good, good enough for a local cafe. I had Mussels, the taste was good, tasty broth. The mussels were well cleaned, properly prepared. Albeit their size was quite small. The onion soup was okay, room for improvement. I would not travel far, nor make a special trip for lunch
