Breakfast in NYC is usually either a diner or Starbucks. We were so lucky to have Maison Kayser around the corner from our hotel. This was a phenomenally creative, delicious, and very French experience in the heart of Manhattan. With an upcoming trip to Paris...More

I had breakfast here. I had some yogurt with cereals and berries, a croissant and a latte. They were playing french music, a very nice atmosphere. I also bought a broccoli focaccia to take with me and eat for lunch. I recommend :)

Good coffee and croissant however spoiled by very slow, unattentive service. Will not be coming back.

Love love love these shops/restaurants! A well-known bakery chain in Paris, Maison Kayser appears to have established a solid foothold in NYC now too. Food is great, whether breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack. They also offer takeout food, including a large variety of healthy/vegetarian...More
