Qathra is a new coffee house/cafe on the ever burgeoning Cortelyou Road scene. It orders it's bread from Balthazar and serves it's food with a Middleeastern twist. On a pretty fall day- it is crowded and the lovely garden beckons. I had a creative lunch sandwich of hummus, avocado and sprouts on an everything focaccia(pictured). The sandwich was under $10 and enjoyed the outdoor garden. The service is decidedly more friendly than the other folks on the road. Brownies which are baked in house(also pictured) looked delish. Other baked goods come from Balthazar and the busy cafe is definitely embraced by the hood. Cortelyou Road area.
