Enjoyed two breakfasts here on a recent NYC trip; baked eggs were the favorite; good pastries and French-style hot chocolate; good service; would love to return

It is a beautiful space with a long wooden communal table surrounded by tables and chairs seating either two or four. The French pastries and bread are delicious and the coffee was full bodied without bitterness. Unfortunately, for most of our brunch, one waiter was handling about ten tables. While he eventually got some help, most of the customers waited... More

I had a very good chopped Cobb salad for lunch. It was on the expensive side, about $16, but was really enough for two people. Plus salads at other restaurants on the Upper East Side were going for $26. The salad comes with two slices of homemade bread. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. Overall it was an enjoyable... More

We had breakfast here most morning because the food was delicious. The guacamole toast, Brown rice pudding, eggs, waffles and hot drinks were perfect. Pricing isn't too bad and the service is excellent.

We had one coffee and one tea and paid $15 including the tip. The restaurant is lots of fun to visit and food, specially breakfast is very good. However, prices are becoming very expensive.

I keep going back to this restaurant from time to time, as I live in the neighborhood, and keep hoping it will change. But no. Yesterday went there, and ordered their "stew" for lunch, which was on the specials' list. The waitress said it was like a chicken fricassee. Essentially what came was a bowl of thick chicken soup, served... More

A very reliable, ok-priced and enjoyable restaurant chain. We like much on their menu (goats cheese salad, avocado toast, cheese board, their pastries). Somewhere we look out for around the world.

Ordered a lentil and avocado salad. Had a long wait (even though the place was not full) and what turned up was a load of little leaves with lentils, hardly any dressing (very unusual for restaurants in the States as I usually have the opposite problem) and what could only be described as one quarter of a small avocado chopped...

Very good, fresh food. We had only a breakfast there. The experience is good. I recommend it but only if you miss FRANCE (or Belgium : the founder Alain Coumont). You can also take away.

I popped in here to grab a bite to go in the middle of the week. I got an almond milk latte and the brown rice pudding. The latte was not very good. Very bitter, but at the same time somehow tasteless. I could tell low quality almond milk was used and not the typical Barista favorite of coffee shops.... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
