    Cute little sandwiches! Sopresatta, butter, and cornichons is great and prosciutto with tomato, pesto and mozzarella was just as good. Also awesome selection of macaroons.

    French Inspired gem hiding at 68th and Madison. This is the ultimate spot for an afternoon pick me up. Quite small but the variety of sandwiches & pasteries are wide and the coffee is rather excellent

    The coffee is solid (Le Columbe) as are the mini cookies (3 for $1.75 - try the chocolate chip) and mini baguette sandwiches.

    For an upgrade on the average grab-and-go tuna sandwich, try their poached salmon sandwich w cream cheese and cucumber. Don't forget a mini-palmier for after!

    Cute little neighborhood gem with sandwiches, soups, salads, pastries and good coffee. Not to be missed for a quick bite or coffee/tea if you're nearby.

    The goat cheese salad is delicious (though slightly pricey) - tomatoes,sweet potatoes, goat cheese nuts and craisins. Perfect lunch.

    Tuna panini, chocolate eclair and the perfect iced mocha make for a perfect mid afternoon snack after all that walking in nearby Central Park.
