La Boulange is located right next to the Palace Hotel, where we stayed for four nights. The atmosphere was really friendly, with the staff greeting regular customers by name.
Salmon egg frittata with greens $6.75. Similar to a quiche, but without the crust. So much salmon in this... mmm.
Almond croissant $2.95. My grandma loves almond croissants and always orders it at bakeries. She said this one had the most almonds she's ever seen on a croissant. I took a bite of it and I liked that the inside wasn't airy at all.
Egg & cheese sandwich with fresh fruit $7.25. There's a choice of avocado or salmon for this sandwich and I chose avocado since we already had salmon in the egg frittata. There were nice chunks of avocado in this, otherwise it was quite a standard egg sandwich.
Orange blossom shortbread $5.75. Very milky and so fresh it crumbles in your mouth.
Addison salon, where my mom, sister and I got haircuts and were therefore stuck there for 3 and a half hours waiting for each other. Addison gives a wonderful haircut by the way, I definitely recommend him.
Luckily, we found another La Boulange right next door!
This one had a bakery inside.
Ham & cheese sandwich $4.75. This tied me over for a good 2 hours. The bread was so good and I still can't believe the sandwich was under $5. Darn you, New York City and your expensive prices!
