Starting this Monday, Kew Gardens commuters will have another place to pick up their morning coffee and a great meal before boarding the train to work.

Roastnco, based in neighboring Forest Hills, is opening a second location at 82-60 Austin St., only a few steps from the Kew Gardens Long Island Rail Road station.

“We are so excited to announce that our Kew Gardens location will officially open on Monday, June 4! We can’t wait to meet everyone,” the company said in a post on its Facebook page.

Roastnco first opened its Queens Boulevard shop in 2016 and has been serving up fresh coffee along with breakfast items in the morning and rotisserie chicken later in the day. On its website, the company notes that it prides itself on “combining a friendly atmosphere with excellent ingredients and locally outsourced products.”


The Forest Hills Roastnco has a four-star rating on Yelp, with diners leaving positive reviews for various sandwiches and salads such as the insalata integrale, which features roasted butternut squash, quinoa, goat cheese, toasted pumpkin seeds and cranberries on a bed of mixed greens, drizzled with aged balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil.

You can find the Kew Gardens Roastnco near the Manhattan-bound platform of the LIRR station. Visit Roastnco‘s website for more information.
