Exporting the French culture to New York, Maison Kayser is your local French bakery away from home. Serving authentic chewy French baguette sandwiches alongside a handful of pastries, Maison Kayser has become a destination for a morning coffee, for a quick bite and for a traditional French gourmandize.
Located on Lexington Avenue, Maison Kayser is a crab and pastry shop proposing everything French from cakes, viennoiseries, yogurt and sandwiches; I stopped for a quick morning bite.
Sandwiches are hard, actually way too hard to be edible. A loaded filling made of premium ingredients nicely balanced and carefully layered to impress; its the bread! The chocolate cookie/brownie is very good; a new discovery for me where the bottom of a cookie, the heart of a brownie and the top of a cake unite into one.
Pain au chocolat with chocolate chips, açaí yogurt cup, espresso and I was ready to start my day!
