If a cozy and romantic Manhattan restaurant that makes you feel like you're in Paris is your goal, Ceci Cela is the place to go. As you enter this cute little hole in the wall, you are immediately confronted with a drool-worthy pastry case. The delightfully furnished eating area is in the back. When you enter this area, you are suddenly transported to the quiet and romantic side of Paris. I believe this little gem opens at 11 am and breakfast/brunchy items are available, but we were so taken by the almond croissants and peach Danishes that all other food items disappeared from our consciousness! The almond croissant doesn't look like a standard french-style croissant...they're less bouffant, but wow, are they wonderful, and truly unique! Two pastries and a cup of coffee was a great way to start our morning. The service was cordial and professional. No matter what you order to eat, a visit to Celi Cela will make you smile a lot!
