    This place has the best croissant in NYC, hands down, no questions asked. It's well worth the journey.

    All of their soups are delicious, but their chicken soup is my favorite. With some artisan bread and butter, and a coffee, and a great dinner is served!

    As much as I LOVE their coffee, I look forward to having their tea, on my next visit. Of course, as usual, the staff is wonderful, and the pastries divine.

    A saving grace in queens. This place has some of the absolute best bread in the city. Bakes in house. Almond croissants/coffee are next level. But so is everything else.just don't expect to dine in.

    Baguettes are top-notch as are the croissants, pastries, etc. But my tip is about the scrambled egg breakfast on weekends. Not on the menu, but it exists. Comes with side of bread and butter. 🍞☕️😍

    Great staff until today, some prick kid threw the sandwiches in the bag then placed the soup on its side so it leaked.

    The line can be a bit chaotic and unorganized but it's worth it. If you see seats open up at the communal tables, try to snag them. The espresso, croissants, quiches and homemade jams are all musts!

    If you are in the mood for tea, get the "Rainforest." Add some honey and it is like a dessert soup of complete refreshing breath of fresh air. Utmost excellent tea I have ever had.
