Euro style bakery/cafe
We are coming to NYC to research bakery/cafes. We're opening a second location of our cafe, www.nadozcafe.com, and want to see some examples of the latest best in design and
upscale bakery/cafe products. We are especially interested in cafes that beautifully display their products, with a wow factor. And, we'd like to sample the best pasties/desserts/food items similar to crepes, paninis, sandwiches on artisan breads. Your suggestions are appreciated.
Wichcraft does have some tasty sandwiches, although in terms of atmosphere/design, there is not much going on.
I would suggest:
La Bergamote in Chelsea
Tisserie in Union Square
Payard on UES
City Bakery in Chelsea/Flatiron
Le Pain Quotidien (many locations, Belgian chain)
Bouley Bakery in Tribeca
Cafe Sabarsky on UES
Balthazar has a really nice cafe/bakery, Sullivan Street Bakery does excellent bread and sandwiches as well as roman style pizzas and pastries, Blue Ribbon Bakery is worth checking out. I would also suggest le pain quotodien (spelling?) which is a very successful bakery/cafe chain. Bouley Bakery is really nice too. And for the best croissants, go to Ceci Cela on Spring Street.
