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

  1. 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.

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