Le Petit Prince- New Bakery in Astoria

Rufo | Sep 14, 200604:10 PM     21

I went to Le Petit Prince at B'way b/t 33 & 34. Had some very nice, little cookie/cakes that were simple and delicious. Vanilla or chocolate flavored that were soft, nutty, and perfectly moist.

I also had a croissant this morning. It was the best I've had in the neighborhood, which isn't normally saying much as most of the others are crescent shaped dry bread, but this was buttery, flaky and had a nice density to the soft layers in the middle. I am no croissant expert, but I really enjoyed it.

They don't have a lot on display right now, but I have been there twice and they had more the second time. Haven't tried the coffee yet, but so far it looks like it might be a nice addition to the neighborhood. At least, it is not the same type of standard Astoria cafe fare. Anyone else check it out?
