I just discovered this darling little bakery with an array of healthy sandwiches made in fresh baguettes (which you can buy while) quiche, soup and amazing sweets! I came in specifically to check out their sweets and coffee- I spied a a platter of huge chocolate cookies with large melted chips in them. I couldn't resist. I was told it... More

Stayed at Manhattan. Wanted to take early picture from Brooklyn Bridge. Decided to take breakfast here. Not so many options, but all the available food was great. Typically the Almondine croissant is delicious!! If you are in the area, you won't be disappointed.

Came here twice. Once alone and then I had to bring my wife to enjoy too. The food is great. A couple of tables to sit. It's right around the corner from Main Street Park which has the greatest views of Manhattan, Manhattan bridge and the Brooklyn bridge.

After more than two years of visiting Almondine every second day, not only does it feel and smell like Paris; the collection of baked goods, breads, sandwiches, soups, specialty seasonal items and coffee is better than France. Easily the best bakery in New York City - all boroughs. The world class owner pastry chef, Herve is without a doubt a... More

Great stop after walking across Brooklyn Bridge. Had chai latte and almond croissant-both were delicious. Sandwiches and other pastries looked just as fresh and delicious.

We stopped here after walking across the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan, after reading about it in a travel magazine. Per the article's recommendation, we had a croissant, and it was possibly one of the best pastries we've eaten anywhere.

We stopped here after walking across the bridge. We enjoyed the french macaroons and a creme brulee. Lovely little spot. It seems that bakeries are a NY past time!

This cozy, little cafe/bakery has it all: delicious patisserie, a very friendly and accommodating atmosphere, and GREAT coffee. The sweet and charming Thai server literally runs around the place with a big smile to keep everyone happy. She was my personal lifesaver when I forgot my iPhone in the place, and she charged it up to make sure she could... More
