2. Mille-feuille Bakery Cafe

Mille-feuille is a dream come true for a French software architect who loved to bake and one day, ditched his day job to get formal training at The Ritz Hotel in Paris.  He then relocated his young family to New York City where he opened his first bakery on LaGuardia Place in Greenwich Village in 2011.  So successful was this tiny bakery that he opened a second bakery on the Upper West Side.  Macarons are such a passion that the owner, Oliver, even offers French Macaron Classes–a hands on session to lean how to make the perfect French Macaron.
