Why locals recommend it
The high-end bakery in Union Square is known for their breakfast pretzel croissants—don’t knock ’em till you try ’em—and light lunches. But they're really famous for their hot chocolate and pastries like muffins and scones. The chocolate chip cookie is the bomb, too. Make sure you get the homemade marshmallow in your hot chocolate! The marshmallow just about fits in the mug!

Yes, Sex in the City was shot here. Yes, they have the best hot chocolate and cookies in town - and a pretty fabulous salad bar. Not open for dinner, great for lunch or an afternoon snack.

Great breakfast and lunch spot. The pretzel croissants and hot chocolate are amazing. A little pricey.
