While strolling through Manhattan we stopped in for breakfast knowing nothing other than they served breakfast and coffee. We were promptly seated by the host, Jerry, who is perhaps the friendliest host you will ever encounter. He warmly welcomed us to the restaurant and did not even hesitate when we asked about recommendations for our evening meal. My sister and... More

While visiting friends who have an apartment on 5th Avenue and 68th my husband and I stopped by the outdoor location of Le Pain Quotidien just at the far end of Central Park. Our friend suggested the quinoa scone. This sounded delicious to me as I love quinoa and thought it would be a healthier choice. The scone was surprisingly... More

I went in for lunch and was very pleasantly surprised. I had a very refreshing Watermelon/Berry mix drink, which I really liked. Also had the Farmers Plate, and that too was very good.

I was amazed to discover that this was a chain, it feels like an authentic French cafe. Great coffee and pastry. Superior brioche french toast. Attentive service.

Jerry was a great host. Attending to everyone and looking after all the details! You felt like eating at home! Love the "big table" concept. I wish they would have more long tables for people to "share".

Great Cappucino, great pastry and healthy organic options in a very casual fun setting. Friendly service and unusual menu items that are fun to try and surprisingly good.

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.
