Food was very expensive- i paid $10 for a small coffee which was 3/4th the size of a small coffee at a coffee chain and a small oatmeal. In addition, the coffee tasted burnt and the oatmeal was too watery. Quakers instant oatmeal is better than this. This place is meant for people who work on wall street.

It has a menu that appears french but at the end of the day it was not quite authentic. The sandwiches were good in their own right and the salads had good portions but if you're expecting an authentic french experience it misses the mark on a few dishes. The coffee is good, the service is starbucks quality, and the food delivery took forever but all in all I would go back for their unique flavors and the cute patisserie ambiance.

Hands down the best pastry shop I have ever had the pleasure to patronize. Every selection is tasty, creative, well presented. I can't say enough to emphasize how excellent each experience is when I come here. Great for treating yourself, or impressing any visitor. Even my In-Laws are impressed with it - and they are French! Absolutely excellent.

I was very upset when my favorite pattisserie closed so I looked online and found financier pattisserie. For the price it's definitely worth it. The strawberry short cake is very well made and yummy-no complains. One minor complain is that when I went to open the box I almost dropped the whole cake because they didn't tape the box. They just closed it. It would've been nice if they would've taped it up like my old pattisserie. Other than that no complains, now I found a french bakery to replace my old one and the good thing about this one is that it has several locations. I just thought of another thing, when I went to pick up my cake, I thought that my cake had already been paid for (I placed my order online) but the cashier said that your order is not complete until you come up to pick it up. I was glad that I took my credit card with me. This never happened with my old pattesserie. I always ordered and paid by phone. Also the cashier never gave me a receipt. What's up with that? They need to fix this!

Their coffee is great (well, how can you not like illy?). The service is very mixed. Some staffers are pleasant, some are surly. The prices are inconsistent as well. For example, the cost of the caramel mochacino with tax is 4.01 or 4.26, depending on who is running the register.

Great pastry and coffee...when they get your order right. I can't count the times when I ordered one thing and got another. Just this afternoon I ordered a lemon tartlet and got a pear tart. And no, I don't have an accent. Also, I frequently have gotten a cappucino, regardless of what coffee I ordered. For $7+ I expect to get what I pay for. We need more coffee shops in the Financial District instead of just this one and Starbucks.
