we had to bring home three loaves -which I could have carried more... wonderful, for me it brought back my 40th birthday in Paris!
My friend and I did a taste test of 2 chocolate croissants. One was from Bien Cuit, and another was at another coffee place, just up the road. There was no comparison. Bien Cuit was near perfection: the pastry was flaky, the chocolate was yummy, the sprinkled almonds were perfect and there was a sweetness drizzled all over it [I... More
Bien Cuit is like a bit of Paris, nestled in the historic district of Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. I wanted to try their bread and from the moment I walked in the aroma of bread and pastries was amazing. I decided to have lunch and chose a baguette with salami, coppa, Gruyere cheese, topped with a grainy French mustard and cornichons... More
There are a few good places to Coffee and baked goods on Smith Street. The recently opened, oddly named, Bien Cuit (a branch of the Greenwich Village spot) is one of the better ones. The Coffee is excelllent, the array of baked goods ($$$) is splendid and tempting. Their croissants are every bit as good as many I have had... More
Went to the new Bien Cuit today at 35 Christopher Street New York. Great looking place with one staff member only to serve everyone. I waited for 20 minutes to get 2 croissants and a baugette. I wanted to try them so I waited.Out of their almond croissants at 11 AM, ok ok I guess I can understand that.BUT 1... More

Servers are friendly and attentive. The only down side is the room itself, which... More
Bien Cuit have opened a branch in Christopher street , between 6th and 7th Ave . Their breads and croissants are simply delicious! The coffee is excellent served in real cups . An old fashion place , where they don't rush you ,and you can read the newspaper or catch up with your mail., without being rushed.
best croissants i've had in a long time! Stopped in here because it was right down the street from our hotel and i'm a sucker for french bakeries. They didn't have a huge selection but what i had was amazing. The ham and brie croissant and the chocolate croissant!
I just come here for the pain au chocolat and sometimes for the bread, both are great and not too pricy. The remainder of the things are too pricy. A 4-inches large quiche, probably cooked two or three days earlier costs up to 13$: forget about it...Just go there pick you croissant and go home....
