P is for (Margot) Patisserie

We're staying in my Upper West Side neighborhood today for a visit to Margot Patisserie. Although it's close to home, it's not one of my usual stops. When my friend, Jane, suggested it, I thought it was time to stop in and see if it had the best coffee in New York City.  


We were there three weeks ago, on what may have been the last snowy day of this season. It's hard to imagine that three weeks ago I was trudging around in boots and today is a balmy sixty eight degrees. I ordered a hot coffee, light for this sampling. The company was good and the coffee was okay. It wasn't bad and it was served hot -- I've found hot coffee isn't always as hot as I like it -- but it doesn't make the cut for best coffee in New York City. While I didn't sample the pastries, they are definitely photo-worthy.   

The cookies looked delicious and I especially liked the packaging. 


Yes, two cookie photographs. They looked that good. 

I was particularly intrigued by the smiling faces tartlets. I'm a fan of lemon and if I wasn't pastry abstinent, they would be my choice to sample.
 

Thanks all for your kind Passover good wishes. I joined friends last night for a wonderful Passover Seder. It was an evening to be thankful for so much, but especially the Exodus from Egypt so many thousand of years ago. The evening was particularly sweet for the presence of the latest generation, two lively little boys and their adorable four month old cousin.

So much coffee and so little time! As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care.

The smilet face tartlets are clever .m. . and cheery. Too bad the coffee won't be your favorite. Glad you enjoyed your Passover Seder.

Like all the goodies there, and I like my coffee very hot also. Glad you're having warmer weather, it's starting to warm up here in Chicago area also, and I have put my boots away!

Your neighborhood is ideal for these A-Z challenges because it offers so MANY choices. Keep up your quest for NYC's best coffee. What a noble quest and fun for you too.

That is too bad about the coffee as I am a real coffee lover. Yes the weather is just beautiful finally.
Happy Passover and enjoy the weekend. :)

This place reminds me of what I term a "phoo-phoo" place, more show than substance. Glad your Passover got off to a good start!

You are a strong lady for passing up all those goodies at these coffee shops. I would have broken down by letter C.

Wonder how many coffee shops there are in NYC? You do have lots of choices. Kind of envious.

I love coffee and those pastries make me drool! Happy Passover, Carol. Yes, we have so much to be thankful for!

I got my boots out once, to play with the kids at school in the small amount of snow we got all winter.

Glad the weather is behaving much better for you. We had two beautiful
days in the 70's.

Carol, your willpower is amazing, something I lack with bread and sweets. Beautiful choice for your Alphabet and lovely pastries.
