Manhattan – East Village
86 E 7th St between First and Second Aves
Manhattan, NY 10003
Stepping into this quaint, homey East Village pastry shop and café will instantly transport you from the busy streets of Manhattan to a small village in Europe, where people sit around ruminating over espresso and custard frittatas all day. The menu changes daily, depending on what’s available at the local farmer’s market (Michelle Obama, you’d love this place), but sample treats include rose almond cookies, lemon cornmeal cakes and olive oil cakes.
