Almond Danish in the Flatiron, Sunday Style

We’ve talked about skipping our weekly Sunday doughnuts at Doughnut Plant to get a danish and coffee and eat it at the tables in the Flatiron.  So with our Lavazza coffee, we grabbed a table and enjoyed the beautiful morning.

I didn’t feel the least bit guilty, even with the guy behind us doing muscle competition poses in front of the camera for 30 minutes.  He must have been making a You Tube video.  He kept going and going.  Clearly very in shape.  This guy doesn’t eat danishes on Sunday mornings.  Which is really too bad for him.

Eric Kayser in New York. Pastry Time.


We stumbled upon the only NYC Eric Kayser bakery last December when we were strolling the UES during the holidays.  But I’ve seen the coming store in the Flatiron and near Bryant Park for months now.  And the Flatiron store is open!  We’ve actually been twice, to pick up bread for dinner.  But today we ventured there for coffee and pastries.  The coffee tasted a little like Lavazza right around the corner.  And I’m not one to ever blink at the cost of a cup of coffee in New York, but $3.50 for my to go cup seemed a tad high.  Alas, I needed coffee to accompany breakfast.
