WONDERFUL PRODUCTS IN BRYANT PARK

We enjoyed the kiosk in Bryant Park as well as the full service restaurant across the street on West 40th. Both have delicious food and it just depends on whether you want to dine indoors or experience eating in the park and observing all of the activity. The pastries and breads are excellent as... read more

We liked this Le Pain Quotidien, we liked sitting in the park just watching people, the basic but organic selection of the menu and the quick service. It is a tiny small place in the park, you can't sit inside, ideal for a breakfast in Bryant park.

We stoped at this lovely location several times at diferent times of the day. Either having breakfast or a cup of coffe or snacks. Everything was organiz and delicious. Croissant is delicious, hot dog is very good. The best thing is you can eat this lovely food at Bryant Park under the trees, LOVELY.

A very good option for a light lunch in NYC, we stopped in several 'Pain Quotidien' bakeries / restaurants during our stay. You can just buy pastries, croissants, muffins or bread, or sit for a light lunch. You can find quiches, breads with dips (humous), quinoa, chilli con carne... all very tasty and fresh. Vegetarians can also find something to... More

Always pleasant. Delightful choice of meals, cakes, breads. Great place to enjoy a light meal, catchup on emails, drink cups of cappuccinos, lattes or hot chocolate in unusual handleless cups sized medium or huge. Love their watermelon juice in summer.

We had a great breakfast with plenty of choice from croissants, fresh fruits, granola and eggs. One of us had the salmon breakfast and the other the frittata. Service is good and not in your face all the time, has a relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant style is very european and the food follows the same style. Weekends are busy so... More

Relaxing atmosphere with a buzz. The hot chocolate was authentic and spot on. Pastries great quality. Visited a couple of these during our stay and they were all consistently good.

My wife and I stopped here for breakfast as we were staying nearby. This cafe is setup very nicely and we were seated at a cute corner table. The menu is very nice, with granola, cereals, croissants, fresh fruits and eggs. My wife ordered the salmon breakfast with soft boiled egg, a mocha, and I ordered the Petit Dejuner with... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
