Great food, well prepared and nicely located. Prices are a little high but that's to be expected since it is part of the Boloud empire. Terrific for a casual bite. No seats so you have to eat standing at tables but this is a great place for what it serves. Great hot dogs.

They have great coffee (from Fonte in Seattle) and good cakes and pastries but they are a bit too pricey. The store is nicely set up though and has a good selection of foods.

Looked this place up online, thought would be a good place to pick up sandwiches and salad for a picnic. Ordered a breakfast sandwich, LOADs of smoky ham, egg, brie...plus also ordered a pork sandwich and greek salad with feta, which had a great fresh lemon dressing you could tell used fresh lemon juice. 2 sandwiches, a salad and iced coffee came out to about $25, which isn't the cheapest place around but food was good quality and fresh, beats saving $5 if i had gone to a corner deli. Just around the corner from subway exit near Lincoln Center as well as an entrance to Central Park (try the lawn at sheep meadow for good view), so great location.

We stopped here to buy a few things for romantic picnic in Central Park. We couldn't of found a better spot. I wanted smelly cheese and delectable pates and that's exactly what I found here. Try the truffled duck pate! Be warned...it's not cheap! But worth the price for a foodie like me!

Nearly $13. for two Tiramisu Éclair and they were not even worth and average rating. Add that to the less than friendly counter girl, she was sharp with her answers, having a conversation with her co-worker giggling and so while completely distracted from the transaction. I am a firm believer in paying attention to the customer, greeting them AND saying thank you AND maybe even something else nice but maybe I just expect too much. Maybe I don't.

I have had other items here and they have been ok, nothing memorable and nothing I would go back for. Prices are too high for a subpar product. Better pastries can be found at Eric Kayser on Columbus Circle.

Counter people should start paying attention to the people paying money or visiting their shops. If your management needs help, then get it!
