just moments from where I was staying I initially went in to see what they had and saw that they had salmon salads with quinoa which was perfect for me for $10. Their cakes looked nice too but I opted for a scone. I went...More

I visited on a Sunday afternoon, but I can imagine this as a great place to bring a date after a meal, and enjoy a coffee and dessert. My visit enjoyed an iced Americano, and an individual cheesecake. The quality was all there (you could...More

Title sums this place up. Some of the chocolates looked absolutely superb. However the macarons were not very nice at all and really not somewhere I would make an effort to go back to.

A beautiful shop with some of the best French pastry around. Lots of temptations. You can even sit and savor your treat at one of the small tables.

Perfection! Well, I guess a one word review does not truly explain the joy you experience when you walk in the door of this quaint bakery. There is truly attention to detail in everything they design. If you are anywhere in NYC, you MUST make...More

Just a great place for a almond croissant, coffee, maybe soup. Visiting over the holiday and loved the chocolate, books, and goodies from the bakery. Looks like a lot of locals eat here so I want trip advisor travelers to learn about this place.

A chance find in passing on a dreadfully wet day in New York. A wonderful welcome from the young man serving. He was very friendly and happy, his enthusiasm was infectious! The sandwiches, flans and pastries were wonderful. A great place to spend an hour.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
