    chocolate almond croissant - crunchy not flaky but quite delicious.

    the hidden back room (it took me three years to realize it was there!) is great for quick lunches or mid-day meetings over tea

    It's hard to go wrong here, but the Financiers, Linzer Cookies, and Paris-Brest are especially excellent. For a quick lunch, don't overlook the smoked fish sandwiches, usually in the fridge.

    Magnifique! Definitely my top French bakery at the moment. The croissants are good but the apple and plum danishes are outrageous.

    Small quaint little bakery. Highly recommend stopping in on a break from shopping in SoHo for some pastries. Paris Brest and Napoleon are both worth it.

    Definitely not the best croissant in NYC. Payard makes much better croissants.

    Known as the best croissants in NYC – you cannot forego the Pain au Chocolat croissant with its flaky, buttery outer layer and gooey chocolate immersed throughout the entire pastry.

    Croissants are the big draw... the pain au chocolat, ham & cheese and flat almond are my faves. Love the palmier when fresh—a perfect combination of butter and sugar that shatters with each bite.

    By far the best croissant I've had in the states. The loveliest French bakery - essentially a little transplant of Paris in Manhattan :)

    The ham 'n cheese croissant is a delightfully savory way to start your day. Get one by 10 or 10:30am, after which, they're often sold out.

    Apricot Danish and large cafe au lait from Ceci is the perfect way to start the day. I wish they hadn't switched coffee brands from la colombe.

    This is definitely the most cozy cafe in NYC, so tiny and French! Croissants are good, but they don't taste like real fresh French ones.
