    Top-notch cold brew, white-chocolate brioche you wouldn't expect to blow your mind, and curry & pavot baguette which is a thing that is great. If you have a dog, sit outside and feel good about life.

    Food is excellent - I recommend anything with bread! Seating at the restaurant is tight so I prefer to take out. Nice grab and go refrigerator at the front of the store with sandwiches and salads.

    For brunch, must have the croissant and baguette with butter. Also the egg tartines are divine. The eggs are so creamy and the toppings simple but flavorful.

    enjoy a meal outside while sidewalk people watching with your own bottle of vino (BYOB). if you need something on the fly, go to flatiron wines just a few doors north.

    A great spot for breakfast on the weekdays or a place to rest mid-day from errands in the area. Can't go wrong with avocado toast (with eggs in the am or crab in the pm).

    Dined here recently with Eric Kayser himself. The man is truly passionate about his baguettes, his family, and making a lasting impression on every neighborhood Maison Kayser is located in. Amazing.

    Almond croissants, baguettes, carbs galore. If you have time, eat outside on a warm day and people watch. Otherwise, you can get pastries to go on the right half of the store.

    Very cute French bakery connected to a restaurant. Bread was definitely one of kind of you're into bread. I had their desserts--do creme brulee and almond chocolate croissant. Yes, just do it!

    Great fresh, healthy food. Pastries are to die for, and the baguettes are sooo good. All this and if you sit outside an awesome view of the Empire State Building!

    You can get table service, or take-out. This French bakery is charming, cozy, and offers divine baked goods! It's in a great location too, just off Madison Square Park.

    They've got an assortment of loaves and pastries, but beware: once you bite into one of their baguettes, that bag of Pepperidge Farm Light Style's going right in the trash, whole wheat be damned. Read more

    Even if you're not hungry, you should always make room for the mini breads (fig, cheese, or olives). Wonderful, cheap snack

    Hidden gem! Good place to sit and have a conversation with someone. If you're in a rush, their Bakery is great for food-on-the-go

    I love the chicken and quinoa salad here so much, maybe more than the baguettes. Cold, tart, and creamy.

    A decent chocolate chip cookie with dark chocolate & pecans: the Cookie Noir. Alternative to a Birdbath Bakery/City Bakery cookie

    If you want to stray from your standard street-side pastry in the mornings and to pay a little extra for something good, this is the place to go! Am now hooked on their financier framboise.

    The Viennoise au Chocolat is to die for. Also, check out the sandwiches, which bring a little corner of France to the US.

    The plié is the best combination of chocolate and bread that ever crossed my lips. Even better than the babka at Breads.

    Truly French croissants, pains au chocolat, baguettes of all shapes and sizes. Egg dishes are ok-croque Monsieur is solid

    Bread, pastries, etc. One of the only places that reliably has chocolate almond croissants--don't miss them!

    Grab a sandwich to go and eat it in Madison Square Park or in front of the Flatiron Building. It will cost you twice as much to eat it there.

    Pretty sure that every item has butter on it. But then again, its also what makes French cooking so good!

    The chestnut tart is absolutely remarkable. Indulgent filling mixed with varying textures, all without being overly heavy.

    skip the restaurant if there's a wait. buy their delicious breads and desserts and enjoy them on your own terms.
    Almond croissant is slightly eggy, try the adagio instead - chocolate mousse. Chicken Poulet club is delish.

    The cocottes are sublime. You can see the egg cooking in if you dig into it immediately.
