I enjoyed everything here, just enough. My boyfriend and I ordered a hot chocolate and a cold chocolate, and my hot chocolate tasted really good, but his cold chocolate tasted like chocolate water. The desserts were good though! My apple tart was too big to finish but I enjoyed every bite, and my boyfriend’s passionfruit/chocolate mousse was good. I’d definitely come back to try more desserts.

These little gems are popping up everywhere. I've never sat down to eat, but I am always drawn in by the bakery windows. No doubt Mr Kayser has an excellent team of bakers. Deserts are light, well flavored and always hit the spot. I normally buy two of whatever I want, because I know I'm always going to want more! 


Eric Kayser has “flooded” NYC with his famous French boulangerie- and I’m glad he did. Maison Kayser makes one of my favorite baguettes - crunchy on the outside, flaky on the inside. Don’t even get me started on how amazing the white chocolate brioche is. I bought it on a whim, scared that it would be too sweet, but it ended up being just the right amount of sweetness - reminiscent of breads you can find at Asian bakeries. There is a special place in my heart for the Upper East Side location as it was the first one that opened in the city AND they have a lobster pasta on the menu that I’m not shy about ordering despite it’s price.
