“Delicious croissants - just like Paris”
Reviewed 30 December 2011

I am constantly searching for a Parisian tasting croissant and this is it. The croissants have the right buttery, flaky taste - they melt in your mouth!!! If you go to the back of the patisserie, a small number of tables provides a very cozy place to indulge. The service was wonderful. I can't say enough wonderful comments about Ceci-Cela and can't wait to return! .

“pain au chocolat was the highlight”
Reviewed 25 August 2011

dropped in here to sample their croissant, pain au chocolat, and coffee. verdict: top marks for the pain au chocolat, and their croissant is superior to patisserie claude. coffee was a light roast and quite high octane in terms of caffeine. . .try to share, as the calories will rack up very quickly. cute seating area in the back, but like most nyc shops, very cozy
