Croissanteria, East Village, Manhattan
It was very sad for me to discover that Croissanteria has closed for good. Yet another favorite indie business is gone. Croissanteria is fabulous! They make a really good cafe latte and there sandwiches and croissants are amazing. They make their baguettes, croissants and pastries on location throughout the day and you can even see the ovens. The Bread Pudding is really good!
They are both a café and a restaurant and they are located in Alphabet City which is really part of the East Village. I definitely recommend Croissanteria and there's much to see and do in the neighborhood. Oh, and yes they have free wifi!
