a great place to stop and refuel

I just adored this place. We visited on a rainy day and were well rewarded with the best tartlets, caramel and salt and strawberry. The best (and I have tasted many, in many cities). The coffee too was good. Worth it, even though it seems to be a chain.

From the waft of buttery goodness that hits you as you walk through the doors to the friendly, helpful servers, our experience at LPQ in the Flatiron District was fabulous. We sat upstairs in the far rear outdoor patio, which was a lovely departure from the streets and traffic of this district. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and we... More

While we were in NY, we dined here 5 times. I must say, the food is good, but service is so unstable. Servers would forget our order, would be late in bringing our check, etc... But overall, we are fans of LPQ, and love their fresh tasting, healthy salads and tartines!!

Great food; organic/healthy choices. Fresh juices, tea, and coffee. Loved the oatmeal; soft boil eggs, waffles w fresh fruit etc. A great way to start your NYC day.

Great coffee and pastries/tarts in a good environment and location. The waitress really didn't seem with it at all though and forgot to bring one of us our pastry which hew reminded her off. After seeing it on the counter for another 10 minutes, I just got up and grabbed it myself. Couldn't any attention to pay the bill so... 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.
