Has really good pastries but because it’s near Columbia University seating could be a problem because students are always there. Cash only.

Lovely little place in the Columbia University area near the famous cathedral. Very popular, lots of local students and professors and older locals, a very neighbourhood vibe. Excellent friendly staff and fabulous cakes. Will definitely go back again.
