In croissants (unlike in friends), flakiness is an attribute, and the buttery whorls at this pint-size pit stop are baked daily to flaky perfection. This is a morning joint where Flatiron suits line up for their caffeine-and-carbs fix; a peppy place wedged onto one of those cab-bleating corners New York specializes in. It’s cluttered but cheery, with a briskly run counter, five café tables, and a kooky attempt at French Country Home décor—plastic vines, waxy berries, and spigots tacked onto stucco walls. A wrought-iron birdcage sits in the corner with stirrers and Sweet 'n Low. Hefty baguette sandwiches include Black Forest ham, half-moon slices of green apple pressed into creamy brie, and a feed-your-inner-rascal concoction of peanut butter, banana, and honey. Crumbs Bakery supplies some baked goods, but the redavelvet cupcakes are done in-house. Of which we might say, "J’adore, indeed."Recommended Dishes
