OVERPRICED CROISSANT SHOP!

Don't get me wrong -- the layout is quaint. The patisserie does not taste like you're in Paris or anywhere near France -- but it wil do -- but not for the $$$ they are asking...the cashiers do have a Parisian attitude though. The staff could use some sunshine1

We took a sampling of a few pastries. The raspberry tart, nutter butter, and Oreo were delicious. The latte was just ok.

It is a perfect place to rest your feet and enjoy the casual ambiance watch the people go by as you enjoy your food. We had Tomato & Chicken Soup (yummy as it was freezing outside), and family style shared - garden salad, a sandwich, quiche Florentine, and a salmon salad. It was just right for the three of us....

The service here was really great and the menu is so interesting. The salads are lively and delicious and the sandwiches are unusual and so tasty. It's just a nice experience all around.

We live in the neighborhood and love having a light lunch there while we're shopping. The bakery is excellent and the small menu offers quality choices. While the menu is limited the seating is even more limited, as a party of four would be a crowd there. We happen to love and prefer to sit at the bar where you... More

We tried the much touted chocolate croissant,supposedly a specialty of theirs...All dough and hardly any chocolate filling. Not worth eating.Macarons were nothing special,certainly not on par with Laduree or Payard.Will never bother again.

Good informal lunch in a shopping area. Nice view of columbus circle. Small, but nice menu. Dishes very tasteful. A little pricey, but terrific location, close to everything. Huge lines for lunch, but nice service of texting when your table is ready. You can walk around instead of waiting in line.

This place is located on the third floor overlooking Columbus Circle and Central Park. We just popped in for a drink before heading to JFK and it turned out to be the perfect end to our trip. I was really impressed with the service and friendliness and they sat us side-by-side so that we could both enjoy the view even... More

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.
