I visited this place in the past, same quality. Small, clean. The young lady at the counter not very friendly. The food is fantastic, any sandwich on a french bread or croissant really tasty and fresh. Variety of desserts with a quality touch. Highly recommended!!!

I had just been released from Columbia hospital and since we don't get into the city often we decided to stop to get something for breakfast before heading home. The croissants, especially the chocolate, were divine. This was so worth the trip! We'll be stopping...More

Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
