Summertime calls for brunch outdoors amongst beautiful scenery. This summer especially screams brunch all weekend long. With safety restrictions being lifted, people can’t help but to get out! We were cooped up for so long that now it is time to socialize. It’s time to meet up with friends for bottomless mimosas and boozy breakfasts. Hit up The Shady Lady in Astoria, Queens to get your brunch fix on.
The Shady Lady is a popular brunch spot all over TikTok these days. TikToker @imani_bailiee reviewed brunch with friends. The Shady Lady is in the midst of the bustling city. Brunch goers love their chicken and waffles, breakfast sandwiches, and omelettes. Brunch also includes your choice of warm drinks or bottomless cocktails such as mimosas. What more could you ask for?! This TikToker scored The Shady Lady a 9 out of 10 which is pretty amazing.
Although the Shady Lady is popular for brunch, they offer lunch and dinner as well. Chicken and waffles are a brunch and dinner item so that’s what I got. My friend ordered the Shady Burger which people rave about all the time. Both dishes lived up to their hype! The cornmeal waffle and chicken cutlet were crispy together. The Sriracha-cayenne maple syrup complimented the meal perfectly. As for the Shady Burger, you must try it. Topped with burbon ketchup and roasted garlic aioli, this is one of the most flavorful burgers ever!
Queens locals and New York residents have to check out the Shady Lady this summer. Whether you go for brunch, lunch, or dinner, you’ll definitely leave with a happy belly! Friends and families, let’s rejoice over yummy food! Here’s to summer 2021!
