The famous Astoria brunch place, Queens Comfort, also has this coffee and donut shop down the street. It’s generally much less crowded than the original (which almost always has a line during brunch), but it’s also a lot more casual - since you order at a counter and the majority of the menu involves extravagantly decorated donuts. They have a good biscuit breakfast sandwich and daily-changing specials, and if you’re looking for something quick or a meal with kids, this place works well.
