Okay

A decent place to relax, eat, and take shelter from the cold day we were there. Prices are not too bad. The chocolate croissant was a bit disappointing with very little chocolate. The pecan bar was very good. Coffee was average.

Grabbed a few sandwiches for the ride home. Bread was a little stale but it was late in the day. I had turkey and cranberry. And it was delicious. I really should have caved in and tried some of the great looking desserts. But it is a long ride home with a sugar buzz. I would recommend this place earlier... More

Cafe was always very busy but we always managed to get a seat. Breakfasts were good with a great selection from croissants to hot muffins with egg and sausage or pancakes with bacon and maple syrup. Good value. Coffees were good too. You can also get take-away so it is handy to stop on your way back to your hotel... More

This is a great place to stop and have a coffee after dinner or shopping. The desserts are also incredible!

Found it, just 4 spots from Hotel Carter. Eating again now, and having breakfast tomorrow! ! I highly recommend it to everyone.

Very crowded most of the time, but good pastries and acceptable coffee; prices are a bit high.. Tremendously convenient if you're walking around with out-of-towners who need to sit down for a while.

I stopped in yesterday to have a coffee and a raspberry linzer tart that I saw in the window. I ordered American coffee and received a frothy coffee which wasn't very good and the linzer tart that looked great in the window was more on the stale side. The staff were very friendly but not impressed by this location in... More

I really like this simple eatery, smack in the middle of Times Square. Had lunch and breakfast there several times. Pastries are delicious, salads are simple but fresh, but the best part is that it is THERE, and not McDonald!

The choices to choose from are quite varied and quite tasty. The soup was extra good and the main dish hot and delicious. It was busy so we had to wait for a table to sit down, but the high turn over made the wait very short. Would visit again.

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.
