The other day, I was walking around Gramercy with a few eating buddies when we happened upon a quaint and cozy cafe called Pan de Sal. A quick glimpse through the picture windows revealed brightly colored walls and the thing that was a dealmaker for me – an extensive cupcake and dessert spread! In the name of research, of course, I had to stop in and see what all this dessert was about….
Our little peek in was worth it, as we were rewarded with a plethora of mini cupcakes:
– as well as macarons, cakes, tarts and croissants. I decided to go with a mini red velvet, a popular choice at Pan de Sal:
My eating buddy treated himself to a heartier meal – a coffee and chocolate croissant:
I snuck a taste of the croissant, which was flaky and fresh. The chocolate filling was generous – oftentimes skimpy filling is a big issue (in my opinion) for chocolate croissants; no such worries here!
The decor was very bright and cheery, with this extensive mural adorning the walls:
I especially liked these super-cute wedding cakes on display – especially the pink one!
Overall, the dining experience at Pan De Sal was warm and cozy – a perfect place to stop by for a quick bite on a weekend! If you’re in the neighborhood, stop in for a dessert or beverage!
Super cute cafe with friendly service.
