We stopped here after walking across the bridge. We enjoyed the french macaroons and a creme brulee. Lovely little spot. It seems that bakeries are a NY past time!

This cozy, little cafe/bakery has it all: delicious patisserie, a very friendly and accommodating atmosphere, and GREAT coffee. The sweet and charming Thai server literally runs around the place with a big smile to keep everyone happy. She was my personal lifesaver when I forgot my iPhone in the place, and she charged it up to make sure she could... More

Vi walked across the Brooklyn bridge and wanted a bit to eat. Found this lovely french cafe down by the river. They had good coffee and lovely pai and cakes.

Good spot for a hot lunch. Vegetarian soup was much appreciated on a cold day. Cakes looked good but I didn't actually have one.

A real taste of being in a French cafe in Brookly of all places. Although it is in the popular Dumbo area, it was quiet enough when we visited to be called a hidden gem.

This quaint bakery is near Dumbo. We had some delicious pastries after walking around the waterfront. It is a nice place to stop and refuel.

Perfect for a breakfast stop, afternoon cafe au lait & croissant or pick up and go desserts. Reasonably priced and best of all VERY FRIENDLY SERVICE which in my opinion is the hardest to find and most important nowadays. Bravo to the girls working the counter. Made our day a good one.

We popped in for coffee and cake, service was good, and cake was nice too, it's tucked away under the bridge , so one you just accidentally walk passed rather than a planned visit. Full of rich locals, they make their own Easter eggs, and the locals love em . O ya tip across the road is a posh Belgium... More
