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

13 of us spent the afternoon in Brooklyn and we stopped into Almondine for some delicious pastries. The bakery is small and there was quite a line but it moved fairly quickly. My mouth was watering from the heavenly display cases filled with scrumtious pastries, cookies and cakes. Some of the gluten free people in our group bought the “Almondine”... More

Waalked in looking for a cake, i wanted something different. I bought a lady finger cake with a vanilla citrus cream and fresh berries. The cake was a hit with my family as we had friend visiting from L.A. and they all raved about how delicious the cake was. Presentation and detail of the cake itself really places pastry chef...
