Right around the corner from my place, Ceci-Cela is a lovely French café and pâtisserie. Since I have been in SoHo, I have gone there a handful of times. My editor is a big fan as well. This quaint and charming café showcases a wide array of delectable, tempting French pastries in its window. When you walk in, you’re greeted by friendly baristas, adorable signs, romantic Parisian songs and even more scrumptious sweets. There’s also a seating area in the back for patrons who want to quickly eat their to-go order or sit down for breakfast/lunch. Complete with hanging plants, vintage art and exposed brick, it’s quite precious.
My review will focus on the iced latte, but I have also had the almond brioche and chocolate croissant. The almond brioche was delicious but a bit overpriced for its size. The chocolate croissant was so wonderful! I love croissants but I don’t typically order them. I tried my friend’s croissant and fell in love.

Review: Lovely! Such a good latte- not too sweet, not too milky. I can always rely on Ceci-Cela for good espresso and yummy pastries. On my last morning in Manhattan, I plan on picking up a coffee and chocolate croissant. Je t’aime beaucoup, Ceci-Cela!
