Maison Kayser

Last summer, I had read about a new bakery opening on the UES.  Similar to Laduree, Maison Kayser is a well-regarded French bakery/cafe with branches around the world and they've finally opened a NYC branch.  If you need to know anything about me, its my love for bread and baked goods (mostly bread though heee).  So of course I was super interested in scoping out this new bakery known for its bread.

A friend suggested we meet for dinner at Maison Kayser and I was super surprised to find out that they offer full meals at the cafe!

As I rolled myself in, I was immediately greeted with a beautiful display of tarts, pastries, desserts, breads, rolls, croissants, and all sorts of goodies.

Then when I looked to the right, I saw the large and spacious dining area:

As I dragged myself away from the display cases, my attention was next attracted to the big windows showing the bakery in the back.  Where bread is born!!!  Fresh baguettes were still coming out of the oven even at 6:30pm.

When I finally sat down, I was greeted with a pretty extensive menu for a bakery!  The waiter also told us that they can do some kid friendly items as well (for my friend's toddler daughter).

After ordering, first order of business the waiter brought over a sack of fresh bread for us to munch on.  So. Good.  Extra butter please!  My friend's toddler daughter definitely enjoyed the bread as well.  Good thing there was more than enough to go around because I wouldn't hesitate to steal bread from a baby. 

Fresh bread to kick start our meal
To start, we ordered the French Onion Soup and the Butternut Squash Soup.  Both were served in large and deep bowls!  Definitley large portion.  The French Onion Soup was tasty, but the cheese wasn't melty enough and was kind of hard to eat with the soup.  A bit of a bummer, but meh I like cheese in any form really...

 For our meals, we ordered the Fig and Goat Cheese Tartine and the Croque Madame.  The Fig and Goat Cheese Tartine came with chestnuts on it so that was a tasty surprise! Both came sliced and ready to eat.  Tasty!

Although we were totally full, we just couldn't resist the call of dessert.  We ordered this pudding thing with caramel sauce on the bottom and apricot preserves on top, dark chocolate mousse, and raspberry financier.  Everything was promptly cleared out.

To add the my enjoyable meal, I loved the striped shirts of the waiters! Very adorable, casual, and french heheeeee..

Love the striped shirts worn by the waiters!
Overall, I loved my time at Maison Kayser.  It was relaxing, tasty, and delicious.  The waiters were great with my friend's toddler so this is definitely a family friendly place.  And they had a ton of great breads and baked goods, so its also a Little Ms. Piggy friend;y place heheeee.  I can't wait to go back!!
