We stopped in for breakfast on a Saturday morning for cappuccinos and pastries. The seating area didn’t seem to be heated and was quite cold. The cappuccinos were more Cafe au lait and little froth. The croissant was very good but the Almond croissant seemed...More

The coffee is excellent and that is why I have been going every day on my recent visit to Manhattan. Generally I would recommend takeout only. The eating area is cramped and very noisy. I am very familiar with the Kayser brand and i am...More

Good choices such as baguettes with butter and jam, French pastries, basket of pastries and croissants, etc. You could also get different egg dishes (scrambled eggs on toast, eggs benedict, etc) and French sandwiches on baguettes (ham and cheese, turkey...More

Their croissants are probably the best in the city and their pastries are right up there but I go there regularly for breakfast. I have not tried a better breakfast place in the city. Their club sandwich and their baguette Monge are great.

We were seated outside by the hostess and asked fir coffee. “I don’t take orders”, she said and walked away. Two other tables were seated and their orders taken before we flagged down a waitress. “I’m not your server but I’ll take your order and...More

Beautiful looking and expensive pastries that were okay- lacking flavor which was very disappointing- the coffee was good- hot chocolate not hot- almond croissant over baked and not much almond
