Francois Payard has a world wide reputation as a pastry chef, having worked at many great restaurants, published at least three excellent dessert cookbooks, and establishing several cafes around the world, including at least three in Manhattan, New York.

I had visited the FP bakery inside the plaza, and it was wonderful. They make the best macarons that I have ever had. Just the right amount of sugar. This is a great place to go to for dessert.

Our family comes here often to buy quiches, breakfast sandwiches, and various other items. The food is consistently tasty and is even better when enjoyed in the cafe with a cup of their hot chocolate, which is some of the best hot chocolate in the city.

Killer macaroons! I got an assortment and each one is delicious and gluten free. A huge hit in my book.

Despite my previous experience from the Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich, I tried another flavor. I like the strawberry cheesecake flavor better because it tastes good and the macaron is softer than the ice cream, though the macaron itself loses its texture. The outer shell (macaron) is supposed to be softer than the middle (ice cream) in a macaron ice cream... More

Wife and i enjoyed a piece of excellent pear tart!! Went back next day to buy the entire cake and sold out by noon (apparently the norm for Sundays) but the lady behind the counter was very sweet about it. Bought a couple of croissants and sandwich instead and they were also excellent.

Why go to a horrible coffeshop or diner when you could get better right here! Seriously, try it! If I ever get to France they'll have a hard time beating these guys.

100% recommended. Great bakery, great ice cream and nice and friendly staff. We had a great time there. You can eat a tasty burguer in JG Melon and have the dessert there.
