Overrated: Ceci n'est pas un croissant!
By tropicatomica on 11/26/2006
Ceci Cela is considered one of the best patisseries in the city, but if that's the case, New York is in trouble. They consistently fail the test of a good French bakery: the croissant. I have gone back too many times, and I have yet to eat a good one there-- they're always stale, dry, flavorless, without flakiness on the outside or tender butteriness on the inside. In France, this place wouldn't last a week. The French staff should be ashamed.
Great hidden gem

wonderful pastries and tarts. great quality although now a bit overpriced. Still almond croissant as well as some of those fruit tarts are just as delicious. Decor is very east village, and the back-room sitting is tight. Coffee isn't great, but can vary depending on who makes it for you.

I went to ceci-cela last week and it was delicious. Best truffles I have ever had. And their chocolate croissants....yummm. Just as good. I would recommend both but they still have so much I haven't tried yet. I am going again next week. I just got myself a certificate for $15 when i only paid $7. They still have some until tomorrow so go to halfoffdepot. Check em out...
