The place


La Bergamote’s new and expanded Chelsea location represents a truly authentic French patisserie, featuring breakfasts of fresh croissants and steaming bowls of café au lait served in a tranquil European atmosphere. Oversized glass display cases are packed with fresh breads and rolls, several types of croissants (including chocolate, almond and ham & cheese), brioche, diverse sandwiches (including smoked trout, saucisson, croque monsieur, etc.), quiches, house-made chocolates, truffles and pâtes de fruits.

But the most extraordinary offerings are the more than two dozen types of pastries, ranging from crème brûlée to mousse noisette, eclairs, mini-patisserie, fruit tarts, and numerous others. Large cakes include the heavenly triple chocolate mousse and exquisite Bergamotier. The owners hail from the city of Nancy, and they clearly pay attention to all the details, including their top-quality espresso machine and hand-painted wall murals and framed artwork. You’ll find a great value and top quality assured here, and the multinational staff is happy to describe the ingredients in the various confections and let you feel free to linger while enjoying your meal. A second location with table service opened in Midtown West in 2008.

- From

After a walk on the Highline this place fit the bill for a rest and treats stop. Four-something in the afternoon, a busy day behind and more to come this was the perfect choice. It conjures up old European pastry shops in not so affluent areas. The coffee was good, the server patient while I tried to figure out which pastry would make me happiest. Lots to chose from. My choice was deeply satisfying, ample in portion and lovely to look at. The cafe was not too crowded. There are also hipster bakeries across the street but this suited a bit of slow down without the pretention. It would be a dangerous place to live near!
