This bakery and cafe has long been a favorite of artists and writers. It is always busy. The pastries will satisfy your sweet tooth. A good place to go before or after visiting the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.

I found out this place by chance. It's a lovely shelter 2 minutes walk from Central Park, Columbia University and St. John's Cathedral. Warm atmosphere, free wifi, good coffee, delicious pastries. Here the time is forgotten. The last but not the least: good prices!
