Friendly accommodating staff but the American drip coffee was weak and had no taste. There's no excuse for this but sadly this has become the norm for a lot of places. Not too many places know how to make a decent cup of coffee anymore. Definitely not worth your $2.50 per cup. I didnt try the desserts but they looked fresh and delcious.

Wanted to come to this place when we visited New York, needed a warm spot to escape the snow and their delicious soup of the day was just what we needed with a tasty multigrain roll it was amazing all for under $20. A great place with lots of locals.

This is a new place on Amsterdam, and it is a great addition to the neighborhood. They have an excellent selection of pastries (croissants and others), and the breads are varied and very tasty. The staff is friendly, and I like their concept: you can serve yourself on a little tray and then you just bring the tray to the cash register to check out. Fast and efficient.

They have a relatively large space with various large tables as well as counter space. They also have delicious freshly squeezed orange juice, prepared on the spot with a juice-maker that comes straight from Europe.

An excellent place, and a great breakfast option.

I wanted it to be so much better than it was. The items we tried (Bacon Epi, Baguette, Coffee Cinnamon Brioche) were good but not great. I would certainly try it again and would stick to the more mainstream items like the bread rather than the pastries.

We had pastries and skim lattes - all very nice. Coffee served quickly. Plenty of space inside, nice window seats to watch the New Yorkers hurry past.
