An unplanned stop on our visit to NYC - we were going to eat elsewhere but they were booked. So we tried this and it was very good. Small eating area but our party of 5 was seated very quickly. Portions were just right -...More

Great place. Great food. Perfect espresso. I’ve been to over 20 countries and I’ve never had poached eggs so great. Really out of this world. We were welcomed by our waiter Yasin which was the best service person I came across in a long time....More

I had the smoked salmon, poached eggs, red onions and capers. Lovely, fresh and nicely presented. I even got a compliment from the server on my leather jacket! It’s a much better quality and value than my hotel breakfast was.

The pastries and cakes are to die for at Maison Kayser. They have a restaurant area featuring a full menu and an area next to the bakery where you can enjoy your coffee (that is very decent as well btw)

A very pretty cafe with delicious pastries and much more. We enjoyed it so much we came back for a second breakfast on our last morning before boarding the train for Washington at Penn Station.

It is a fancy dessert and coffee place. I did like their walnut tart a lot and also got another dessert slice which was quite tropical in taste. Good coffee, but also busy. Not bad overall, but i think I had higher expectations.

I love madeleines and I make madeleines all the time at home. Savory and sweet, big ones and little ones. I have been to Paris seven times and was there last month. I needed something to eat this afternoon. These chocolate madeleines, tasted like a...More

I wasn’t familiar with this mini-chain from French baker Eric Kayser until I spotted this small cafe near my hotel on Bryant Park. I enjoyed their espresso shots, lattes and bakery items, including a Salted Caramel eclair and a delicious holiday brioche called a Gibassier....More

We came here before going to a museum for coffee & pastries. We each got something else so we could share. The choices we made were delicious & very fresh. Nice place for people watching too.

Cannot help you on that one really so I recommend you check directly with them. I can tell you that it's a very busy place due to the lovely food. When we went in November there were more New Yorkers in having lunch with... More
