Manhattan – Upper West Side
201 W 83rd St between Amsterdam Ave and Broadway
Manhattan, NY 10024
Carbophobes, beware: You"re in serious sweet-tooth territory. Upper West Siders and tourists mob this café, especially on weekends. Brunch is served until 4pm daily, and light sandwiches and salads are always available. But the real draw is the sugary siren song of display cases packed with cookies, brownies, cakes, pies and more. Art Nouveau posters, exposed-brick walls and French windows attempt European flair, though many of the desserts are unabashedly American, from apple brown Betty to chocolate-covered Oreo cheesecake. It's no surprise that scenes from the syrupy Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks comedy You"ve Got Mail were filmed here.
