Love the eggs and the little pot they came in..with some truffle oil and asparagus, probably the best place for breakfast around! Especially because you can smell the bread from several blocks away and they give you a basket full of their delicious breads...very nice and great coffee too!

I've been going here at least once a week since they opened on the UES. The scrambled eggs have been perfect, but lately they've been served lukewarm & too runny. They could also benefit from sound-reduction--it's NY not Paris!

I've been several times of the last couple of months, since I live in the area. I had a few issues during the first month or so that they were open (food was a bit slow coming out, waiter being overwhelmed and not knowing the full menu or dessert options). Since then, it seems like they've really gotten their act together - I love coming here! The food is consistently great and I love the atmosphere. About the bread, anyone who thinks this isn't the best croissant in the city should probably head back to Starbucks. And the baguettes...wow! I haven't had bread this good since I was in Paris. I pick one up almost every time I'm walking by. As a tip, be careful with the mini-financiers. I think I'm addicted...

I grew up eating the baguette Monge and pastries from Kayser in Paris so I was so excited when they opened in New York, and in my neighborhood. The store is pretty and somewhat true to the ones in Paris. However, pastries and food are not as good and so overpriced. The baguette is too thick and floury, and the restaurant food is very boring. Staff always seems overwhelmed. Out of nostalgia, I will probably buy a baguette or a financier once in a while but I know it'll be a gamble and a treat.

another place for the ladies to lunch...an alternative to Le Pain! And it is -- just as loud, maybe more expensive. BUT - it looks cleaner and the food is presented in a more pleasant way - Service is 'spotty' It was crazy busy late lunchtime and the ladies were very demanding - no surprise. I did bring home pastry and the apple tart did not disappoint... Another place to go! Yay

I went with a friend for a late lunch. Although the food quality was good, it was sparse. Only two tine pieces of feta on the watermelon salad The frisee salad was missing a poached egg, a standard ingredient. We had no clue who our waiter was because each time someone helped us, it was a new face. The coffee, which took forever to come, was only luke warm. I'm not going back.

I went for lunch recently and was in awe of the crispy, chewy, amazing bread. The baguette was perfect and the raisin walnut as well. The salads are good and the date goat cheese tartine was as well but the main player here is the bread. If you like sweets try the white chocolate brioche, it tastes like sweet challah. Yummmm.
