Just to say that while Financier might be a nice place to have a coffee, I have just been burned for the second time by buying an inedible stale cake there for a holiday. The first time it was a large sacher torte purchased at the Gold Street location. This time it was a small flourless chocolate cake purchased on Fulton. I don't usually purchase cakes except to bring to someone's house so I don't know if the problem is that they make a large quantity for the holidays some time before they are sold. No one finished the piece they took and and no one wanted the leftover cake. I am not going to complain again to them as last time they pretty much said "tough".
I will just say to myself "fool me twice blame on me" and not buy another cake there.
