    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.

    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.

    This patisserie does a great croissant, but also try their gorgeous plum tart, frangipane-filled pear tart, or seasonal treats like a tiny, charming Bûche de Noël.

    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.
