Bouley Bakery & Market-- Too Crowded, Pricey

I went in to grab a sandwich for lunch and discovered that this place is too small to handle the volume. The customer waiting area is cramped and confining-- there's no place to stand when you're not waiting in line. Some of the pastries weren't labelled or priced, and the staff behind the counter didn't know the pricing. I learned the hard way: $5.50 for a raspberry macaroon is pricey, even by Tribeca standards. I won't be going back.
