laduree breaskfast substitute

Tragically, Laduree has moved its opening day from today to August 26. My birthday is tomorrow and my mom and i were looking forward to starting off our day with some macarons and coffee. Any idea for a subsitute? i am thinking we should just go to patisserie claude for croissants. We dont want anything heavy as we are having a big lunch. I live in the west village and have tried bosie tea parlor and found it very disappointing (twice!). any ideas for where we can go instead?

thanks all
alyssa

    Payard at the Plaza Hotel has great macarons and good cappuccinos.

      Mille-Feuille! Great croissants, possibly better than Claude. Good macarons, too.

      I haven't tried their coffee yet but you can easily go to Third Rail, which is also nearby.
