Girlfriend picked these up around 5:30pm. Wasn't much left available at the time and it's small. We got 3 fruit tarts and they are delicious. The crust was crumbly and the fruits were fresh. I wish there was more custard as it was light and not too sweet. Overall a good pastry 7/10. More...

Ordered lunch from Beny's and we loved it. The sandwiches were delish; I had the Le Mozza with mozzarella cheese, tomatoes and pesto and the cheese was so fresh! ! Cant wait to try their pastries, which they had them as an option for delivery. More...

This is a little gem of the French cuisine in Prospect Highs . Everything without exception just plain delicious! The only complaint that I have about this place that I have is that they getting closed at 7 PM. You will not be disappointed by stopping by there and getting anything from them. More...

The pastries are great. Really delicious. I wish that they'd update the vibe a bit though. From the street this place is truly unremarkable and the layout inside is pretty bad. But they definitely deliver on the pastries. A French friend of mine said it was like being at home. More...

I've lived in the neighborhood for about two years at this point. There's been a fair amount of staff turnover but they've all been very friendly, and this is my go-to spot when I don't want to go to far out of my way. It's right next to the Clinton-Washington subway stop, and their coffee is delicious. I love their macaroons and their signature breakfast sandwich. Sometimes there's a bit of a wait but that's just the nature of visiting a tiny shop like there's, but it's definitely a spot I recommend to friends in the area. More...

This place kills me!!! Their chocolate almond croissant is by far the most incredible croissant I've had in NYC (I've done my research too, bien cuit you've been trumped! ) they're baked incredibly fresh - I know people tend to always say that about bakery spots, but I will be there constantly and they will either have just dropped in a fresh, warm and flaky bunch or, I'll have just missed the last round in which I determinedly will wait then for the next ones to arrive. Always worth the wait. On another note, it's a small spot only a few counter serve areas to sit, enough space to sit but not really work for extended period. Other items on the menu are nice but the croissants are the real lure to this spot. More...

I'm torn between giving Beny's three or four stars but I'm just going to go for the four because I love their croissants so much! I love coming into Beny's for a quick snack before work and as small as the place is, I've never had trouble getting a seat. It's super cozy, and the music is always relaxing and fun. My favorite things here are the decor, their croissants (both plain and chocolate!) and their coffee. Aside from that, not much else is worth their prices for my taste. The times I've tried their macarons they just didn't taste fresh. Also, could be that the cashier gave me the wrong flavor but if not, some of them do not have the flavor that is advertised. Another thing is their fruit tarts. They look sooo good and they should be delicious but they have this very distinct taste that I can't get past, the best way I can describe it is, they taste like they've been in the fridge too long, and this has been the case with every flavor I've tried (banana-chocolate, lemon, berry and apple). Again, they are delicious, but just don't taste very fresh. I have also tried their quiches, which are definitely delicious but also have this stale "fridge" taste. As for the service, they have very friendly people behind the counter but most of the times that I've walked in, there's no one there. Oftentimes, the staff is in the back and when they are, you have to wait a few minutes for anyone to come out front and realize they have customers. Not always ideal for a quick cup of coffee before work when I want to be in and out.I will continue going to Beny's for their AMAZING croissants, their coffee, and friendly staff members but unfortunately, wouldn't recommend much else.

My boyfriend and I are obsessed with their croissant with goat cheese and raspberry marmalade. FREAKING FANTASTIC! That's the only thing we've tried there so it's difficult to rate the place overall but we are happy with that one particular pastry. The staff are always nice, the place is clean and the rest of the pastries on display look beautiful. I'll report back on the rest of the pastries if I ever put the croissant down. More...

This is place is small but amazing! Such a homely ambience. Friendly staff and great service. If you love fresh bread, all kinds of Italian/ French sandwiches, yummy quiche of all the imaginable flavours and a huge variety of deserts. Coffee is fresh and affordable. Comes in three handy sizes. A must visit joint if you are in Brooklyn More...

I came in here randomly while in the area looking for a fast brunch fix. Everything in the displays looked amazing and prices were great so I had a hard time choosing. I was waited on right away and decided to go with a ham and Swiss croissant. (Only $3.50) It was made fresh and out in no more than five minutes if that. I ordered Togo, but there was a small seating area for eating in as well. My croissant was AMAZING. Seriously the best one I've ever had. The bread was perfect and the ham was sliced in thin small pieces. Just delicious. I'd come back for sure for breakfast and to try other pastries. More...

I've been coming to Beny's for 5 years, and it never disappoints. Their pastries are some of the best in NYC, and super reasonably priced. The cafe is small so don't plan on a long, extended brunch here on the weekend but it is reliable, scrumptious and affordable. Nom nom! More...

Um, where has this place been my whole life? Delectable pastries made on site, the lowest priced La Colombe coffee I've ever seen, and rotisserie chicken and potatoes just like in Paris? I'm sold. I had a coffee and an almond croissant, which was perfection. Another for the list! More...

Customer service was top notch, the man and woman behind the counter were both very polite and friendly. I got the popular chicken sandwich and potato wedges. The chicken sandwich was really delicious and the bread was the thick crunchy kind but it wasn't so hard that it cut the roof of my mouth. I felt like I got a lot for my money and I would definitely buy it again. I had to take one star off for the potato wedges, they weren't all that great. I think they were cut too thick so aside from the flavorful outside...it was just a mass of plain potato. The chipotle sauce they give you does remedy this a bit but I wish I had more. So while I'll definitely be back, it won't be for the wedges. More...

First time "yelper" over here- had to save it for something great. Beny's is wonderful. The croissants are the closest thing to France I can find and the coffee is always fresh. Not to mention everyone I've ever encountered working there has been so friendly- even if there are a few people in line. Totally worth every penny. Was walking around and stopped in just as they we're about to close and the barista gave us some free pastries to try with our order. Great gesture- and now I'm hooked. Hope they don't go anywhere!

Awesome pastries, good coffee, friendly service - Beny's Delice is my go to whether for a quick latte on the go or a mellow afternoon enjoying hot/iced drinks and snacking on one of their french pastries. The best part is that their menu is so varied for such a tiny place and their service is always courteous and friendly.Note - they recently moved to Fulton Street which I'm glad about because although they are a little further away from me, more of the world needs to see what Beny's has to offer!

The baked goods are so outstanding I am surprised this place has not become a brand that others carry. Quiches and other prepared foods (e. g other Savory pastries & goat cheese ricotta pie) also delicious. And that is ignoring that I think this place originated as a dessert shop and half of their display case is full of desserts -which are also very good. More...

Beny's Delice is a great spot for coffee, sandwiches and Viennoiserie. I love that they roast La Colombe, since it's my favorite brand! While the pastries are a bit expensive, the coffee is very reasonably priced. ($1.25 for a small coffee.) The decor is very hip, and the customer service is just what is should be  -- friendly, quick and to the point. Best place for coffee on the Fulton Street drag.Also, the bakery wafts the smell of melted chocolate down the street, which is worth at least one extra star. More...

21 October 2014

I used to go here every day when I lived in the neighborhood and I was there the day it opened. While it hasn't been around all that long it feels like old Brooklyn to me. I think this sounds kind of dumb now that I've written it... but whatever. It's not over-priced, the croissants are among the best in the city (I'd love to hear who has better), the food is sometimes imperfect (but you're buying from a fridge! ease up a bit!), but overall great. The coffee is drip, but it's also cheaper than other "roasters"... Anyway, I love this place and wish there was another one close to me. More...

Thanks to a month of dig sitting and walking to Prospect Park, I stopped at this place four weekends in a row on our way home. Delicious pastries, wonderful individual quiches, and a ton of other stuff I have yet to try. Post dog I wandered back for breakfast and had tasty eggs and salmon. Lots of people in the know stop on foot or in their cars on the way up or down Vanderbilt. Highly recommended. More...

15 July 2014

A little out of the way, sitting on a relatively quiet stretch of Vanderbilt near Atlantic, but Beny's is worth it if you're looking for a quick and tasty breakfast/brunch. - La Colombe coffee, at atypically reasonable prices for NYC- delicious little mini quiches, and some very attractive pastries (I have abstained from the latter to date, but it wasn't easy.)  Everything looks like it's made in-house, and there's some really cool stuff, even if you are like me and think macarons are weird.- well-sized yogurt/fruit/granola parfaits, with several options to choose from (also a bargain at $4, I might add!)There are a couple small tables inside and outside (in good weather), and the service is friendly and quick.  Nice little spot, with good product at even better prices.

This duck sandwich is amazing.  It's also a perfect size.I bought a bunch of petite fours - each was tastier than the one before it. Also bought 2 macarons - pistachio & chocolate.  I was supposed to save a few things for tomorrow but I ate all of them!I may have to come back every week. More...

I ate an almond chocolate croissant from here today and it was perfectly moist and delicious. Exactly what I had remembered from a few years back, and until today forgot where it was located which happens to be not far from my new apartment.

Best almond croissant in new York City?  Walking in here to get my morning coffee on cold winter mornings, it is HARD to walk back out the door. Warm, cozy, super friendly service (very special mention goes to Nora, volunteer french teacher to all of Prospect Heights), and that amazing smell of freshly baked croissants. Oh, and the coffee is great. More...

M
28 March 2014

Beny's is a great little place to grab breakfast, but make sure you have time to spare because they don't have the quickest service. It took me about 15 minutes to get a quiche heated up and a cup of tea. It's a cramped space but it's not a problem if you're taking your breakfast or snack to go. As for the food, it's delicious, the croissants are flaky and soft, the quiches are yummy and the pastries are heavenly! The only reason I rated 4 stars and not 5 is the speed of the service, definitely not the place if you're in a rush! More...

23 March 2014

My friend and I went here for a 4pm meal, we were in search of coffee and a small bite.My iced latte was quite good, my friend loved her ham & swiss croissant and teeny salad. I ordered the savory french toast. It had a poached egg, bacon, spinach, a small slice of toast, and syrup. Flavorful and delicious, perfect small size. I also picked up an apricot tart to go. It was good, although not the best I have ever had. The food here is reasonably priced and tasty, I would go again when in the area.The tables are too close together and thus you may learn too much about people at neighboring tables (and accidentally hit them in the face with your ass) More...

Small and delicious selection of French pastries including macarons and mille feuille. Great local joint run by the very friendly owner right on the edge of prospect Heights. Grab yourself a coffee while you're there for your after dinner desserts. Macaron flavors include pistachio, hazelnut, tiramisu, strawberry, blueberry, peanut butter, lemon, and chocolate. Just get one of each and walk away! More...

Beny's is a chill, terrific coffee house - the kind of place you can keep going back to and enjoying. So far, I've enjoyed the:- Chocolate almond croissant, which is tasty and delicious- Lemon and pecan tarts are just perfect- Coffee, which is superb.

Wow, the baked goods are out of this world. Best croissant I've ever had, and the best baguette I've been able to find in NYC. There's not much seating - it's mostly just a take-out counter, but I still plan on coming back and crowding into a seat to have breakfast here. Plus, the woman who runs it is always smiling and joking with her customers. It's an all-around pleasant experience. A real neighborhood gem! More...

Lovely mini quiches! Fantastic coffee! Lovely bread pudding! The cafe is cute. There are bar stools along the wall with wall lined shelves to eat off of. It's more of a spot to grab and go rather than stay in and eat. Quaint and trendy.They have lovely pastries and savory sandwhiches also. The quiches are probably the best things here. If it wasnt for the shotty customer service, this place would have gotten 5 stars from me. More...

13 January 2014

I have been here on several occasions and everything I've had was wonderful. In particular, their regular croissants and the chocolate almond croissants are some of the best I've had anywhere. One day I went in for breakfast and wanted something simple, and I ended up getting a really delicious and ample sandwich, which consisted of really good ham and eggs on a rosemary brioche roll, served with salad (didn't really need that but nice effort) for something like $3.  Looking forward to trying their quiche. They are cash only, which is sometimes a pain. More...

I would like to officially make a complaint to Beny's for being so damn close to where I live. Do you have any idea how difficult it is for me to resist the urge to go in and buy something deliciously fattening from you every week The nerve of this place! But in all seriousness, Beny's is a small, simple, yet charming cafe with food and pastries bursting with flavor. The staff is also friendly and wonderful. Their chocolate almond croissants and fresh baguettes alone are worth a weekly visit. I've tried a lot of their breakfast food, and while I find most of the food I've had too greasy/heavy for my liking (just a personal thing), I'd highly recommend the savory french toast. You can get a half or full portion, and it's poached eggs on top of a bed of spinach with pancetta bits and french toast. Delicious! They have tons of tasty desserts and pastries, so It's really hard to resist when you're standing in line and these pretty desserts are calling your name. Chocolate bomb, strawberry frasier, mille feuille, tarts, macarons - they all make eyes at me. Now that I've managed to gain some self control and NOT go on a weekly basis, I can honestly say that I fantasize about those chocolate almond croissants several times a week.I have yet to try their lunch specials, but I have tried their tuna nicoise salad and LOVE it. Not only is it delicious and healthy, it's GIGANTIC. And it's noticeably better at this location than the other one in Clinton Hill. More...

Saw all the great reviews for this place so I had to check it out. Many recommendations said to get the chocolate almond croissant so I tried that as well as a latte, and let me tell you, both were extremely delicious for much cheaper than your typical thousand dollar prices at Starbucks. If you're close, definitely stop by this place and try whatever entices you, I'm almost positive it will be amazing. More...

Not sure why this place gets a B sanitation grade but don't think I really want to know. It's a french cafe that offers both sweet and savory options at affordable prices. My savory faves include the quiche, cigar rolls, and soups. Everything is pre-made and must be reheated for dining in, so be patient or your food may only be half-warmed. All the desserts are tre fancy, some looking too pretty to eat. They also offer fresh breads. Open 7 days a week and takes plastic. The only downside is the lack of seating. More...

so good. evening stop to celebrate my birthday after dinner. much better than cake. tried three things, all magically delicious: pistachio macaron, chocolate almond croissant, and fraisier. coffee was good, too.

I can't praise this place enough, but the biggest plus is the quality of it's croissants and other patisseries. They're better than many I have had in Paris, and France in general. The prices are excellent and the atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable, despite the small size. The other food has character and plenty of flavor, and it's probably a good thing it's not closer to home, otherwise we'd be gaining extra pounds. A New Year resolution already: come here more often and sample more of the interesting range of what they have to offer. Coffee's pretty good too. More...

This is my early weekend treat! Cafe au lait at $1.25 isn't only cheap but leaps and bounds better than most I've had in the area! Their croissants and mini quiches are my poison, especially the ham and cheese variety. Hankering to try their sandwiches and they all look so good. have had some of their petite cakes and tarts too (me thinks the latter's better). Staff's funny and hardworking so what not to enjoy, right? More...

Small, cute breakfast place.Service is really kind and fast.The pastries were fresh and delicious.The cakes were not fresh at all and just ok. Apparently they DON'T make anything there, so pick only what's daily delivered and is fresh.We asked what was fresh and what wasn't, but they replied that they are not aware of when things are made!Anyway, great pastries and nice ambience More...

Beny's Delice is made in minimalist French style with solid wood furniture. There are a few tables outside which is great to sit on a beautiful summer day. We've tried a few pastries/baked goods there and everything was yummy. What is better than coffee or tea with one of their pastries on weekend around noon? I've never seen this place very crowded, I assume they are new to the area. More...

I ate the sandwich with prosciutto, fig, goat cheese, and arugula.  They served it with a mixed greens side salad.  Both were delicious.  The bread was fresh and crispy.  The portion of arugula was large, which allowed its nutty flavor to shine through.  The fig was more of a preserve than actual sliced fig.  It was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had, and at $9.50 was reasonably priced. Due to the $10 credit card minimum, I bought a $1 pastry that the cashier had described as a chocolate eclair.  By the looks and the flavor, it contained no chocolate at all.  It was mediocre on all accounts, with sugar as the dominant flavor and a certain over-refrigerated quasi-stale texture.  But it's clear that this was just a dud, as the pastry assortment was varied and visibly high in quality. The ambiance of the place is both hip and quaint, with wooden furniture and a chalkboard menu on the wall.  It is tiny, but has several tables where people were working on their laptops.  As someone who lives in the DC area, this place represents the intersection of quality and value that I envy about Brooklyn.

The staff here is the real deal, and they continue to deliver with amazing pastries, including astonishingly delicious macarons. The mini-fruit tarts are baked to perfection.Coffee and pastries aside, my go-to item on the menu is the duck salad - smoked duck on a bed of lovely greens, including green beans, potatoes, etc etc. It's tasty and healthy. I could have it for lunch every day. More...

When you're sick of paying $2+ for an 8oz coffee and $4 for a scone Benny's Delice is an oasis of tasty, affordable goodies. Small and charming, I love stopping in on early mornings for a pain au chocolate and coffee. So good and refreshingly not pretentious. More...

I feel so lucky that this place opened up by my house about a year ago. There isn't a single bad thing on the menu but I'd recommend the chocolate almond croissant and the macarons as highlights. I haven't had better elsewhere.

I love this place, not only do they have great pastries but they have fresh bread.  It is really great to have a place in the neighborhood where you can pick up a baguette or dessert on way home  from work without having to stop at the supermarket.  You won't always be able to get a seat but if you do it is a good place to take a break and relax a bit.

I live just around the  corner and I thought I should give this place a chance ,i used  to get my coffee at another place on Vanderbilt. .. But oh my... This place is amazing!  The pastries , macaroons and quiche... You got it all there. The place is kind of hiding at the end of the street but I'm very happy I ended up there. You can also order tarts or get some wine. Love it!The service is awesome too. A guy who's there in the evenings is very helpful and nice and will explain it all to you if you are not sure what you want. I'm there  every night after work now since they're open late . Great food great service and a very cute little french bakery. Love this one More...

Hands down one of the best coffees I've had in a long time. The macarons were on point too and at $2 per piece (big size), it was a steal! The barista was really friendly and helpful when E and I paid a visit. And I was listening to him interact with another customer and he was really pleasant all throughout the exchange.Great little French shop right on busy Vanderbilt Ave. More...

Came here for Friday lunch and absolutely loved it! Duck sandwich is the way to go! The sandwich comes with Brie and arugula, and everything just melds perfectly. The flavor intensity of the salted duck is contrasted by the lighter Brie and semi bitter arugula. In terms of texture the creamy, melted Brie is a great complement to the crispier greens and tender, chunky duck pieces. The sandwich is so simplistically elegant!Filling-to-bread ratio, which is the most important sandwich metric in my opinion, was great, too, and you're getting plenty of meat with your sandwich! My teammate who got the grilled lamb got a colossally loaded sandwich with the filling 3x the height of one bread piece!Service was also really great here. Quaint coffee shop feel with friendly staff! Will definitely be checking out their desserts (especially macarons soon)! More...

I came here because I have a slight macaron obsession, and I would have given a 5 star review if the guy behind the counter wasn't so rude. He refused to exchange $2 in cash for change for my friend so we could catch the bus because "they needed their quarters". There's no way I was letting this slide. After some Customer Service 101, he gave in. But, seriously, we had just traveled across town and spent about $20 on macarons. Put your customers first!Now, the reason I excused him and still gave this place a good review - the macarons! They're bigger than most, but still light, fluffy, and creamy. They got our order wrong, but we ended up loving the chocolate, lemon, strawberry, and blackberry. They don't have a huge assortment, but their other pastries and quiches look just as tasty. I doubt one jerk really represents how the bakery is as a whole, so I would definitely come back here! More...

This place serves really great coffee and breakfast items. They've got an assortment of quiches, all of which are delicious. I can't speak for their sweet pastries as I havent tried any (yet), though Im sure they're just as great. Staff is really friendly and always greets with a smile. Things are moderately priced too. B rating on window likely refers to bits of croissant flakes lying about the tabletops - harmless! More...

Lemon, tiramisu, pistachio and raspberry are our favorites.Just remember, they aren't good for traveling o a hot summer's day :( More...

Every time I am here I always try to get a chocolate almond croissant and it never disappoints. Often I overspend at this spot and buy way too much. The breads are great too. I don't know of bread bakeries in the city so this is where I go when I want great baguettes. If you speak French, this is a great place to go and parlez too as a lot of the employees speak French.

Stopped into this cute little patisserie/coffee shop hoping that it would be bigger to be able to sit down and write my blog, but it was kinda small.  Yeah waaaay to small to pull out the 17-incher so I just got a latte to go.  Although the latte wasn't the normal creamy that I really love, it did have a nice foamy texture that made up for it.  Plus it was served by a nice barista VERY hot--the latte I mean.  It's very charming in here and the goodies look very fresh and perfect.

I don't always drink coffee but when I do.............. I don't really enjoy it. At all or that much. I think it has to do with the fact that when I was younger I had a really weak stomach. On top of that my father always tapped the breaks often which just made situations worse when we went on long trips in the car. To combat the issue my mother had her used coffee tins in the backseat which I could throw up in when I went to vomit. Sometimes I would just dry heave and that smell of coffee would go up my nostrils. Maybe it's that smell and taste that I associate with unpleasant moments. Regardless of my odd story, when someone I know wants coffee I bring them to Beny's. Beny's is coffee I can stand which says a lot about them. Also I enjoy some tasty treats they have. Whatever you get it's usually a sure bet. So when in the area and you need your caffeine fix (You junkie) head to Beny's. More...

To quote a friend, "Holy shit. Holy shit. Holy shit. This is the best macaron I've ever had. Have you tried this? Holy shit.

AMAZING ALMOND CROISSANTS. take that balthazar - Beny's got you beat. maybe a teensy bit pricey for sandwiches? its very similar to Outpost on Fulton which charges $6. 50 for a sandwich + side salad,  but Beny's are $8.50 on average. That being said, if you actually want a table, an outlet, and some wifi, Beny's is totally your best bet during the week. also, about a million other sweet treats, good place to stop if you're going to a friend's for dinner and promised you would bring dessert.

The Vanderbilt Avenue outpost of Beny's is a great addition to this part of Prospect Heights. It has great coffee, a friendly staff, and delicious baked treats and prepared foods. Particularly good are the quiches (my favorite is the ham & cheese) and the lentil soup. Since there isn't a lot of seating I end up getting coffees to go, or I stop by to pick up mini-meals when I feel too lazy to cook or go to a real restaurant. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the limited seating, though I guess there isn't much the place can do about that! More...

Yum all sorts of treats! The sandwiches and other lunch-type options are also very good.

It's like a little bit of France landed on Washington Ave. Everything needed for a gourmet lunch or a beautiful spread for an impromptu cocktail party. The menu board offers great gourmet sandwiches and a glass display is stocked with beautiful quiches that come in individual and mini sizes, a few pre-made mini sandwiches and quarts of soup as well as picture-perfect pastries. There's a cooler with fresh berries, handmade dried sausage, D'artagnan fresh sausages and cheeses and a small well-curated selection of French mustards and fancy sodas . for those eating in, there is a selection of wine available as well. Everything I bought was delicious and I'd come back for sure. More...

This Beny's is just as good, just as French, and just as reasonably priced as the original locale on Fulton Street. More often than not, it's staffed by a nice guy named Michael. He'll help you navigate through all the excellent pastries, snacks and more. However, after several visits I've found it nearly impossible to go wrong: the croissants are impeccable, the desserts are exquisite, and the savory snacks are delicious without fail. If you find yourself on Vanderbilt, stop in and grab a snack. Pick one up for me as well; I gave you this nice recommendation, and quite frankly, it'd be rude not to. More...

My husband and I bought a Groupon for Beny's Delice that bought us $20 worth of food for $10. We didn't expect too much since we have never been there and Yelp reviews gave it a kind of 'eh' feeling. Let me start off by saying that we live steps away from Athom, Little Skips, etc. We've been to Athom 2 or 3 times but didn't love it, and it's easy to grow tired of Little Skips since we order the same things over and over again. We wanted to try something new.I had mozzarella, tomato and pesto on a baguette. My husband had a daring hot dog sandwich(?) with Swiss and Dijon mustard. Both meals came with a salad. My sandwich? Kind of eh. I prefer the one at Skips - the mozzarella there is more flavorful and they have prosciutto on theirs. The added salt really makes the sandwich. Turns out my husband's sandwich was delicious. So much so that he took half home and excitedly ate it for lunch the next day. The salads included were delicious. I ate all of mine and half of his.When were done eating, we ordered dessert (+10 points because I love pastries). I tried the Chocolate Pear Tart and he had the Raspberry Macaroon. I wasn't a fan of the pear tart. The chocolate was dark and overwhelming and the crust was missing sugar. I won't ding them for this though, because I don't *love* chocolate. I figured since the Groupon covered it, I might as well try something I don't usually eat. The macaroon was *ridiculous*. Like 'Holy Crap I Think I Died' delicious. I bought another 4 to take home. They are super sweet so eat in moderation or you'll give yourself a tummy ache.What really made the experience was Mike, who was both cashier and server. Although the place is small (only 4 tables), we didn't feel crowded or rushed. We had not idea what we wanted and he answered every question and offered suggestions for food, drinks and desserts. All in all, our bill came out to $4.50 after the Groupon, which kind of sucks since there is a min. on credit cards (which I totally respect) but no ATMs or banks around. Mike let us slide but remember to bring cash if you're spending less than $10. If this place was anywhere near my house, I'd be here on a regular basis. If I was in the area on a spring or summer day, I would definitely stop in again. More...

I went to Beny's Delice twice and I love the Beny's Delice croissant. The croissant was flaky and warm just the way I like it. The egg, ham and swiss tasted especially good with the red pepper sauce. I usually don't like eating red pepper at all, but this is an exception. You must order it if it is your first time there. The macrons were yummy. I tried the pistachio and hazelnut flavored ones. It was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Not too chewy with lots of filling. I liked their freshly squeeze orange juice better than their latte.  The pastrami panini wasn't so great. The bread was way too hard for my taste. More...

7 January 2013

Finally, a Groupon success story. I went in for a deal, and am now hooked.The lemon macarons are really tasty here. Sweet and tangy like a lemon square, with a little crunch to the shell and fluffiness from where the meringue meets the lemon custard. I'll have to try other flavors. Very nice with their fresh coffee. The lamb sandwich had big, tender pieces of lamb and roasted peppers, and was served with fresh mixed greens. Their peppers taste like they are pickled and roasted in-house as they still have a fresh texture (not mushy like ones in a jar). C'est vraiment savoureux.The quiche here was nice too, although I should have asked them to heat it up more. The Croque Madame was made using fresh, crispy baguette, thick slices of ham, and savory gruyere cheese. I personally would have toasted a little bit of the cheese to make it less oily to the tongue, but it was still very tasty. No complaints. The egg was cooked just right-- crispy egg white and a runny yolk to be absorbed by the bread.  I look forward to trying more of their order-and-fire items, like their cassoulets and the classic escargots. More...

This is my go-to coffee place due to its closeness to my apartment, great coffee and reasonable prices. It's particularly awesome that a cafe au lait costs the same as a regular coffee (though, they usually foam the milk in a regular coffee, as well). Their pastries are consistently great--a personal fave is the chocolate almond croissant...my mouth is watering just thinking about it. I also like their seasonal desserts. During the winter, they have log roll cake-type desserts that have flavors like chocolate-chestnut or pear. Their tarts are also very good, though a little pricey.I don't usually eat their lunch/dinner items, but this past week I did try their soups and baguette (which were comforting to a sick boyfriend :-) ). The soups are rather thick, so I usually ended up diluting them and adding my own spices. Another item to try is their quiches--my favorite is the mushroom, spinach and truffle oil one. More...

If only this place is near where I live... Came to this plave for the first time because it was cheap on Groupon. I'm a coffee lover and their coffee is strong and smooth. Unlike those water down coffee you get from bakeries. The chocolate macaroon was delicious. It's sweet, but with that cup of coffee along with it, it's just perfect. Chicken Panini was perfecto. It's enough to satisfy two stomachs :D More...

I love love love this place. Their croissants are rich and crispy and authentic. The chocolate almond is almost too much to handle. Their coffee is great and they (almost) always use steamed milk, even in the regular coffee, which I really appreciate.And all their other food - sandwiches, little tarts, dinners (lamb curry and mashed potatoes!), the delicious lentil soup that I'm eating now - is always great quality and usually exceeds expectations.The one on Vanderbilt is great too. Just a really wonderful, charming, local place with great food and coffee. They've never lead me astray/ More...

This place is definitely a place you'd want to spend your mid afternoon eating lunch. Their chocolate and almond croissant was heavenly. ugh This place is amazing. Usually I have a long review for a place like this but I think you should seriously try this place for yourself to understand what I'm talking about. 5 stars across the board from every Yelper who has reviewed so far. Beny's, you're doing something definitely correct. Keep it going!p.s. Groupon is having a $10 for $20 deal! Hurry up and snatch your coupon now!p.p.s. their wifi password is their phone # More...

I love coffee shops and can usually be found at one in my free time. Beny's ranks as one of the BEST little coffee shop and eateries I've ever been to. - Coffee is superb and on par with well-known gourmet coffees (Joe the Art..., Stumptown, Intelligentsia, etc.) I'm very particular about my lattes and coffees, and the staff is very accommodating to my requests.- The food... amazing. I used to never eat ham, until I discovered Beny's Breakfast sandwich. Their combination of ham, cheese, egg, and that RED PEPPER SAUCE, all in between a perfectly light and flaky croissant, is God's gift on earth. I devoured 3 in a week. Also, their food is very French and delicious. For food, I highly recommend their choquettes and almond chocolate croissants. I can't wait to try their cakes. Their selection of sandwiches, salads, and entrees also sound amazing - I liked their grilled lamb sandwich and le hot dog, and plan on trying the duck sandwich next time, among other things. - The ambiance? PERFECT. It's a small, cozy place, with just a few tables, and an overall simple and rustic feel. I've spent hours holed up at Beny's and it will never get too loud. There's Wi-Fi (with $10 min purchase) and outlets if you want to study, but it's also a great place to chat with friends over lunch. Overall, Beny's is a fantastic addition to the neighborhood. I look forward to frequenting this adorable place! More...

I just posted a review on Beny's but didn't realize it's the one on Fulton. I went to the new one on Vanderbilt Ave. just a few blocks away. So here it is:I recently got a Groupon and wanted to try Beny's (the new one on Vanderbilt Ave). It happened to be near my wife birthday so I asked if they make cakes for occasions, which they do. So I ordered a dark chocolate cake. The manager Mike took down the info and gave me some suggestions.When I picked up the cake, I almost had a heart attack. It was SO BEAUTIFUL, looks exquisite and expensive! And the price was more than fair. My wife loved it and thought it was from Dean & you know who. Haha, THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER! Custom made, fresh, beautiful, great price, and most importantly, DELISH!!!I bought a few other items too, and yes, their croissants and almond croissants are to die for! These are super nice people that make good food. Fantastic French-style pastries with great price. Their pastry chef David is God!What a wonderful addition to the neighborhood! I'll be back!Oh, people, if you needed a cake for special occasions, ASK THEM! You'll thank me for it.Haha, I hope I don't sound like a fake customer. It's just that their food intoxicates me and my wife LUVS me for that.Is that so wrong? :)Love you Beny's. And thanks for the wonderful experience. More...

My friends and I rolled past Beny's Delice on our way to Weather Up (there will be a separate review for that place).   This pastry/sandwich/croissant/cake nook on Vanderbilt is quaint and friendly.  There were so many options.  It was not possible to try everything in one visit.  There is no doubt I will be coming back!My crazy curly haired friend scarfed down her eclair in literally three bites.  So I assumed it was delicious.  I opted for their mini tarts.  The cashier server guy was patient enough to go through the different types of mini tarts with me, even though it was pretty self explanatory except for the chocolate brulee one.  There was a piece of raspberry, strawberry, and so on and so forth placed on top of the yellow filling for recognizably purposes.  I think he thought I was an idiot.  I blame the shot I took at Cornelius (they have $4 drafts, $2 shots of whiskey, and $1 oysters).  I too scarfed down the two mini tarts and wished for more to fall out of the sky.  We bought madeleines and my porn star stached friend who does not like sweets took one bite and proceeded to finish his cake.  Even if he wanted more from the bag, my crazy curly haired friend and I ate them all.Give me more of Beny's Delice(ious) goods.

I tried the plain croissant, mini-brioche and pain au chocolat: loved them and can't wait to go back for more. The prices are reasonable and the baked goods as delicious as the ones sold at Ceci Cela, in my opinion the best patisserie shop in NYC. Too often, I'm disappointed by many French-style pastries sold in good cafes or gourmet shops in NYC; they  are greasy, or stale and dried out,  or obviously made with margarine, not butter.Beny's did not disappoint. I just wish it was located closer to me in Fort Greene. It's in Clinton Hill. I look forward to trying their little quiches. I go to Paris every year,and know good places there (industrial baked goods are everywhere, even in France) but in the meantime, Beny's will be my local treat. More...

Super cute, super delish and was totally our go to for our recent vacation. We were staying directly above the cafe and it was an oh so cool experience to just walk downstairs and get such a delish breakfast every morning. Their croissants are freshly made and SO flaky and yummy. My husband LOVED the hotdog egg croissant sandwich and I got the chicken, bechamel sandwich put onto the croissant and will dream about it I am sure. Lots of amazing cheeses and french novelty items in their mini market as well. Délicieux! More...

This new French cafe sells all kinds of wonderful croissants, sandwiches and breakfast foods. There are only two types of croissants in the world, heavenly and not worth eating. They get it right here.  The bread for the sandwiches is also excellent, it seems like it could be made there or they have an excellent local baker. The interior is cute, they have coffee and some other dry goods for sale, about 3 tables inside and one rustic wooden bench with table outside. There is also a wooden tree guard on the street that functions as a bench. So you can sit outside there as well. The pastries are all so pretty it is hard to just have one. I loved the chocolate croissant best and I also love their sandwiches. I often pick one up on my way into work. More...

Beny's would be welcome in any neighborhood, but it is almost miraculous to find it in its relatively obscure location on Fulton. Beny's does everything it does with a great attention to detail and deliciousness. High standards and great value are found here - what a rarity. The sandwiches are all great but the Pan Bagna will change the way you look at the lowly tuna sandwich. Just had the seasonal cucumber gazpacho yesterday and it was fresh on the palate and full of flavor. Can't wait for the hot days of summer to come around so I can enjoy it even more. But the desserts and really the highlight at Beny's. Treat yourself to a tart tonight. More...

Super cute new Patisserie in Prospect Heights has wonderful french pastries and bite-sized delights! (eclairs, croissants, quiche, fruit tarts, sandwiches and more) Also has coffees and teas and cool French products like instant crepes mixes, spices and cookies.

I am so, so,   *so* happy that this place opened on Vanderbilt.  I had never been to the Fulton location, but the Vandy one is two blocks from my apartment.  I can't wait to try everything on the menu.  I love a good french patisserie, and Beny's is awesome.  They also bake bread and have a respectable food-imports section.  The place is unpretentious and the crew is nice and personable.  All wins... but once I had a croissant, that's when I knew we were meant to be together.  There are few things I love in the world as much as a proper croissant, and Beny's are hella good.  Crispy outside, chewy inside, and with that little bite that makes them perfect.  Beny, if you ever leave me, I'm going to kill myself.

"Would you like some iced coffee?" asked the barista understandingly, as I staggered up to the counter on a recent disgustingly muggy weekend morning, en route to the beach, but feeling like anything but a bathing Brooklyn beauty. How did she know?! Iced coffee was in fact exactly what I wanted - that and one of their fantastic croissants. Beny's had already become a morning routine, but now my love has turned into out and out devotion. Great coffee, great pastries, great staff - consistently. More...

When they first opened, the owner used to experiment with the menu, making things for take out for dinner. Once he made this coq au vin that I still dream about, it was that good. Now they seem to have settled down more into a sandwich/crepe/croissant/salad kind of vibe, which is still pretty fantastic. Everything about this place is awesome, except possibly the lines in the morning. More...

I adore this place.  Beny's is my favorite coffee in Brooklyn by far! Plus! They have the most delicious [almond/chocolate almond] croissants [which they will warm up for you! ] and breakfast sandwiches.Sometimes there is a little bit of a line and it takes a few minutes for your drinks/sandwiches/salads, but it's totally worth it.It's dangerous to have right around the corner.

Beny's brings a little charm to a charmless strip of Fulton, and it's right by the subway so you can get a coffee to tide you over while you stab pens into your thighs waiting for the C train. I haven't tried their 'spresso but the drip coffee is La Columbe and very solid, and I like how they steam the milk for your coffee instead of keeping a lukewarm rancid container out all day.Once when I was here a woman was taking pictures of some guy's dog on her smartphone and the guy snapped "Don't take pictures of my dog!" While the guy was surely what we sociologists call an old jerkwad, he probably has a point about how friggin weird it is to take pictures of a stranger's dog. Discuss. More...

I get these croissants at Spices and Tease and they are glorious! Especially after being warmed up a bit.

Get the almond croissant. It's the best $2.25 you'll spend all week. When I know I'm about to have a particularly grueling day at work, I stop here before hopping on the C at Clinton-Washington. I haven't tried any of the lunch items, but their sweets are perfect.They're not the quickest getting your order, but they make up for it with smiles and friendly chit chat. More...

Great little spot. Very good pastries. The espresso is sometimes bitter and other times very good. Today it was amazing.

If you get one thing, please for love of butter, get the croissant. It is amazing - so buttery, chewy on the inside flaky and crisp on the outside. They make croissant breakfast sandwiches which are delicious as well. You could probably put anything in the croissant and it would blow your mind. Another item to die for are the little brioche balls with large granules of sugar on the outside. Its killing me that I cant recall the name - they are usually in the top display case all the way to the left. They are just a little bit sweet and savory which is an amazingly simple but unbelievably tasty combination. If Im going over someones house I like to get an assortment of pastries and quiches from Beny's. The carry out packages look good and its perfect for curing empty handedness.Pricing is fair and the goods are worth every penny. More...

I LOVE THIS PLACE!  It's my favorite neighborhood spot, and even if I didn't live in the hood I would seek this place out.  Hands down best croissants ever.  I was obsessed with the almond croissants for a while, until I tried the ham and cheese.  They take a fluffy, crusty plain croissant back into the kitchen and some magical person heats it up with warm ham and Swiss cheese.   Amazing.  Delicious coffee, very friendly service, what more could you ask for in the morning?But this place has so much more to offer.  They have yummy sandwiches, soups and salads and on occasion foie gras.   And pasta!  I've seen foods here I've never seen anywhere else, in interesting combinations.  Haven't tried their pastries yet, but since everything here is homemade and what I have tried is incredible, I have no doubt that their pastries are superior too.Try this place.  It will make you feel so good!

I kinda wanted to hate this place. For one, I somehow didn't have it bookmarked so it wasn't on my itinerary for my jaunt down Fulton. Secondly, it has a cutesy name and there's a ramp to the counter, which proclaims they only accept cash. Third, it's kinda tiny and French and epitomizes what folks tend to demonize about Brooklyn.Unfortunately, the $3.25 blueberry tartelette I bought at 3pm on a hot Thursday afternoon was staggeringly delicious and not all that minuscule for the price. The prices seem steep, but given the freshness of the blueberries inside and the properly prepared nature of the treat, I'd consider another stop-in for a treat to go. Flippin' coincidences ruin my  attempt at eating better. More...

If the only thing I could eat for the rest of my life were Beny's chicken sandwiches and croissants, I'd be happy. Probably wouldn't live very long, but I'd be happy.

Classy. Frenchy. Non-obese macarons for $1. Delice! The Green tea chocolate is good and so is the Peach apricot. The chef also makes something called Petite doucher filled with raspberry jam and lemon cream ohhhh goddddd. So good!There isn't much seating space in here but I happened upon a slow moment where I could enjoy the sunshine by the window and admire the black and white floral Parisian like walls melding with the deep wood seating and interior. Must try their savory items next and update! More...

We literally stumbled on this place while killing some time in the neighborhood. Well, actually I think I saw the dessert case from across the street. And what a dessert case it was! Tarts, tins, souffles and macarons all neatly placed in rows and lit up beautifully. The woman behind the counter was just as enamored with the little treats as I was and offered friendly advice about the different flavors. The strawberry macaron paired perfectly with an iced coffee on a warm day. The place itself is quite small with extremely limited seating. Beyond the bakery set up they also offer salads and sandwiches. As long as you're not there during a rush though, you should be able to find a nice wooden perch with street views. More...

Beny's Delice has good food, but it is not the best gourmet cafe in Clinton Hill. Choice Market on Lafayette St has better food at lower prices. The cigares at Beny's - small rolls of food - are very good - I like having warm goat cheese wrapped in prosciutto. However, most of the food here just doesn't have a very unique flavor. More...

This cute little joint smells absolutely amazing. My first visit, I told the two pleasantly chatty, lovely girls working behind the counter so, and they exclaimed, "Imagine WORKING in here! "And I did. I imagine that I would slowly work my way through the surprisingly extensive menu of edible delights available in such a tiny place. I imagine that I would consume entirely too many sweet and savory crepes, sandwiches, tarts, salads (nicoise!) quiches, AMAZING croissants, friands* and other pastries. I imagine I'd try to cut down a bit by switching to the smaller versions they have of nearly everything (mini-pies, mini-cakes, mini-quiches and tartelettes**). And then I imagine I'd forget I was cutting down, and dig into the fresh pasta dishes, prepared lasagna, and even the soups when I felt so inclined. I imagine I'd be fat. Fat and happy, and drinking delicious drinks out of bendy straws. Bendy straws make everything better._____________*A friand is apparently French ham, sauteed mushrooms and béchamel wrapped in pastry. I didn't know what it was either, but I can now report that it's $5, very tasty, and served with a bit of salad when you eat there. **I heard your mother is a tartelette. You can't get mad at me, it's just something I heard. More...

Beny's is the best. It's like a bakery in France: not just for breakfast/treats. You can get breakfast, lunch, or dinner from Beny's.  The owner, David, is the man.  The counter staff is great, too.  Everything is high quality. More...

For appreciators of the croissant, look no further! I tend to find most croissants in the US a bit rubbery/greasy/not good, so I'm particularly pleased to find this gem of a patisserie.  I've tried both the pain au chocolat and the standard croissant, and it's not too complicated - they're crispy on the outside and buttery on the inside (just like a good croissant is supposed to be). The chocolate in the pain au chocolat is delicious as well.  I'm tempted to say this little patisserie sells among the best croissants I've tried in the US. More...

Very cute bakery with good coffee. I actually really like the savory items here as much as the sweet. The various ' cigars' are all delicious. They also have a menu with pasta and sandwiches, but haven't tried any of those yet. Sweets: they have an almond chocolate croissant! That way you never have to choose between them. Well, actually you do because it's sold out a lot. Anyway, any of the croissants are really good. My favorite dessert here so far is the thing I can't remember the name of (dohh!), but has pastry cream, sponge cake and strawberries in it! It's delicious ( it's the strawberry frasier, I went back to check!) More...

As close to Paris as I've come this side of the atlantic.  The croissants are buttery and flaky and, if you get there early enough, still warm from their oven.  We frequent all the bakeries in the neighborhood, and there's a pretty high standard being observed, but Beny's blows them all out of the water.  My 16-month-old daughter is a particularly enthusiastic fan of the little chouquettes.

I live by the Washington Ave entrance of the C stop, but I often trek over to Clinton Ave to in the morning grab a cup of coffee and a croissant aux amandes from Beny's.  Their croissants are some of the best I've ever had; the plain are crispy and light as a feather and the filled ones are overloaded with delicious interiors without a sacrifice of texture.  Their miniature quiches are also fantastic; the eggs are the perfect creamy consistency.  I've also enjoyed their sandwiches and fresh baked bread.Sorry that a large coffee is $2.25 here.  Unfortunately, making a good cup of coffee involves using generous amounts of beans, so it is necessarily more expensive.  This stuff is not even in the same category as the $1 cup of hot water they serve at 916 Fulton Deli Grocery or whatever you're comparing it with.  Beny's can hold its own to the coffee from Grumpy, Gorilla, or South Side, and it's cheaper than those places to boot.

Everything here is amazing.  The pastries, the cookies, the coffee, the bread, the entrees . . . like many other reviewers of this place, I find myself going here multiple times a week because although its tiny the selection is vast.  (Breakfast?  Croissant.  Lunch?  Tuna Sandwich.  Dinner?  Lasagna. Dessert?  SO MANY OPTIONS!)I can't rave enough about this place. More...

The best! I have to refrain myself from going there every day. The pastries are sooooooo good! Sometimes we go there twice a day in the week end. ..  My daughter can't get enough of the "pain au chocolat" and if you come in the morning they are so fresh that the chocolate inside is still soft.. The croissants and such are a very good price for REAL french pastries and bread. Then the cakes are to die for. And the mini quiches! I haven't tried everything yet... More...

What can I say: "Fantastique", "extraordinaire" or simply excellent!pastries are outstanding( I mean tasty but not sugary! ) croissant and other viennoiseries freshly baked and now, offering entrees to go like the petit sale aux lentilles, lasagna, or homemade soups (try the mushroom or the tomato).  The true spirit of a french bakery arrived in Brooklyn! BRAVO! More...

What a wonderful place.  The pastries are really amazing - all of them (I've tried almost all of them) and the food is actually really good.  They do a few classic french sandwiches as well as some interesting twists like the french 'hot dog' (really nice).  They have GREAT quiches and mini quiches, as well as great soups, salads, and some other pasta type entrees that they change up once in a while.  On top of which they have a great coffee station where you can get just about anything you want - from an Iced Soy Latte to a shot of espresso, etc...  Staff is super friendly and presentable.  The owner seems like a cool guy, and the place is always clean.  Another great addition to Clinton Hill's developing Fulton street.

I've been enjoying the coffee from Beny's for months and have been just looking for an excuse to get my fork into their yummy looking desserts.  Thank you Christmas eve.  I got a great selection and brought them to a dinner on the 24th,  What a huge success.  Everything was absolutely delicious!  On the 25th I brought fresh croissants and pastries to my sisters and again, everything was amazing. Thanks to their great hours through the holidays, and their yummy yummy treats, everyone had something to enjoy! More...

Thankfully, this gem is right around the corner from my apartment. I love coming here in the morning before hopping on the train and grabbing a coffee and almond croissant (absolutely DELICIOUS! ) Their other stuff is great too - quiche, desserts, lunch menu--you name it, and it's awesome.To top it off, the staff is super friendly and helpful if you can't pronounce the name of something that looks super yummy ;) More...

Listen up folks. I've lived in this neighborhood for 13 years and it's about time I don't have to trek to Philadelphia or TRIBECA to drink coffee made La Colombe beans. So: once or twice a week I'll pop in, chat with the super nice Tess or some other dude who calls me Ma'am and order a massive decaf and a croissant. The coffee: splendid. I've discussed. The croissant - can stand up in a ring with Ceci Cela's. Will it win? Perhaps one day ... dream big, Beny's Delice croissant! But in the meanwhile, thank you for being so freaking delicious, so close to home. I'm curious to try some of their savoury options - I feel like Brique might be in the offing (are you listening fabulous proprietors?) and while the sandwiches might be a bit costly ($7.00 for a pan banga - which is tuna plus goodies, but not diamonds, for chrissakes!) they do look damn delicious. Beny's is a cultural moment. Go. Relive junior year in France or that hot lover you had to ditch because s/he was PYSCHO and smoked too much.And hey, Beny's, perhaps you can drop the prices of your freshly made products after 7PM or something to 1)Make it possible for everyone to try your gorgeous food, despite price; 2)Brand the idea that your food is fresh and that freshness has a shelf life; 3)Because Provisions and other spots do the same. Good for: Clinton Hill; those who understand the art of moderation; the morning after fanciness. Yeah baby, most important point! More...

This place is simply fantastic and serves authentic, traditional French offerings. I come here weekly after tennis and treat myself to something savory and then to a delicious pastry. Everything is made fresh daily and the proof is in the final product. Just as wonderful is that apart from the staple mainstays, the selections change daily so you always run into something new. Friand, Croque Monsieur, Kefta Pie, Pan Bagna, Tuna Nicoise, Gratin Dauphinois, Religieuse, Napoleon, Eclairs, Baba au rhum, Tart tartin and the vast assortment of other tarts,.... I could go on and on about all the wonderful things to offer but honestly just take my word and rest assured that the product is impeccable and no matter what you choose you will always walk away pleasantly full and satisfied.  Very nice to have something like this in the neighborhood!

A great addition to the neighborhood. Stopped in over the weekend to pick up some croissants for Sunday breakfast and grabbed a baguette earlier this week. Both were excellent. The insides of the croissants were the perfect soft delicate texture with just the right amount of buttery goodness. Great baguette- crispy on the outside and wonderfully chewy on the inside. I may have to start stopping by weekly to grab some croissants for my childhood Sunday family breakfast ritual. Oh and the décor inside - so freaking stylish! Love that wallpaper. More...

First Yelp review ever!I just moved within Brooklyn and landed on the Clinton Hill/Fort Greene border, and have been pleasantly taken with so many details of the neighborhood, residents, and business. So much so that I felt I must silently project my opinions out into the digital realm, starting with Beny's Delice...I've only been in here 2 or 3 time, but on all visits I was thoroughly impressed with the service and the goods. Both sweet and savory pastries are fresh, delicious, and authentically French. The coffee is very tasty, and the barista (Beny?) will steam a small pitcher of milk for each cup. Not only that, on my first visit I requested an iced coffee and he ran next door to buy a bag of ice! It's a cozy environment as well, tastefully decorated, and everything is moderately priced. A nice addition to Fulton Street, I hope these guys do well! More...

ok, showing someone around ny and need somewhere inspiring and tasty near the c train in brooklyn.  and what do i find?  this tiny wooden haven with delightful pastries and real french baguettes--crusty on the outside and oh so chewy on the inside.and can we talk about the design?  how sexy is that ceiling?  i want that in my restroom at home.  not to mention the fab wall paper.  as for the hand-rail slash bar at the entrance:  genius.so there were talks of metro cards and cobblestone streets over a chocolate mousse that seduces your tongue with its silky texture and jasmin tea, which he iced for me, the dear man (who also let me use the restroom in the back) and i can't think of a better way to have introduced brooklyn to a wide-eyed californian than to spend a few hours at this gem of a hole in the wall.

Just opened last week, early July. Two French guys did a really good job making this former hair salon into a (desperately needed) pastry and coffee spot, right by the C Subway entrance. One of them (David) takes care of the savory (had a delicious friand, a traditional treat from Eastern France / Alsace, which is a flaky turnover style filled with meat, he made his with a cumin and goat cheese). The Tomato surprise was beautiful and yummy.The other guy (Gaël?) takes care of the sweets, and the fraisier was just as good as it looked. The decor is at once bold and understated, floral black and white wallpaper fill the lateral walls, while divider panels in diagonal, giving a glimpse of the kitchen where all the magic happens.
