Cafe Henri
Cafe Henri contributes to why the number 7 train is aptly called the international express. We want you to start your Sunday here because brunch should be a time to relax and appreciate the time spent with family and friends and there is no better place to do just that than at a French-inspired bistro in Long Island City. With a straightforward, uncomplicated menu, choosing an item will be an easy choice but if you want our recommendation, go with the eggs benedict or the sumptuous French toast – neither will disappoint.

After your ephemeral escape to France, return to Queens in style by perusing the exceptionally unique, Lockwood in Astoria. First opened in 2013 by passionate owner Mackenzi Farquer, the store has items that you will not find elsewhere nor online. Goods range from purely aesthetic to well-designed functional pieces for the home. Fortunately, after you finish exploring Lockwood, there is more just 100 feet away in Lockwood Paper which is a stationery-related specialty haven that will have an item that will be perfect for your office or workstation at home.

Sunnyside Gardens
Take the 7 train to 46 Street Bliss Street and head towards 43rd Street. Once there, you will feel the charm and quaintness of a small town between 43rd Street to 52nd Street in between Skillman Avenue and Barnett Avenue. This micro-neighborhood titled Sunnyside Gardens built in the mid-1920s and modeled after the English Garden City movement consists of passionately gardened walkways, brick rowhouses, and lush trees. Meander the nestled and quiet streets and you will realize why this neighborhood was landmarked as a historic district. Easily one of the unearthed jewels of Queens, you will find yourself coming back again for a Sunday morning leisurely walk.
