stopped in there this morning for coffee (9th ave and 20th) and couldn't resist the pastry even though I already had breakfast. It was superb, I was really blown away. Rivals anything I've ever had in europe. Everyone else in there (French and francophilic friendly crowd) was gushing about the just-baked madelines - but I had to draw the line somewhere.
Pretty good hot chocolate (not too sweet) so-so coffe, clearly the latte drinks were the way to go as everyone else (who seemed like regulars) were lapping up big bowls of them.
