Sure the pastries are delish, and the coffee great. But I recently had a wonderful lunch there. For around $8, I got a 1/2 a sandwich, a salad and an amazing soup of the day (curry corn I think). Anyway, it's tiny so getting a seat indoors is no guarantee. In warm weather, however, local moms and scenesters spill onto the sidewalk.

Patisserie Colson has the best coissants and pains au chocolat In Brooklyn. The owner of the shop trained under the famed Hubert Colson of Begium. How could anything be bad?

I really can't understand the review that says Colson's pastries are terrible. I go there all the time and the pastries are always great. The morning rolls are fabulous, yeasty and sticky and delicious. The croissants, though not the best I've had anywhere, are certainly better than most everything that passes for a croissant in this neighborhood (or this country for that matter). I love the pear and goat cheese turnovers. Their cookies - the financiers and the madeleines - are super (especially the financiers). Their oatmeal is great and the baked oatmeal is a treat if you are on the go. In the summer, you've just got to try their ice cream. They make the best ice cream in the slope. Not overly sweet, not goopy rich and thick, just perfectly creamy. And they serve them in these delicate fresh-tasting cones that I thought were homemade, but apparently they are not. Lunches are great, though I liked it better before they changed the quiche (it used to be bigger and not as crusty as it is now). Their sandwiches are perfect. I don't drink coffee, so I can't comment on that, but my husband says the coffee at perch is much better.

Maybe their coffee is good, but as for the pastry... not a chance! I tried 2 pastries... a rice pudding pastry and a mini-pumpkin pie. Bloth had thick, sticky-chewy crusts, and utterly inelegant fillings. I couldn't finish the $3.50 tiny pumpkin pie. The crust might have required two sets of teeth to chew; it was practically choking me. The "dollop" of what I imagined would be fresh whipped cream tasted more like "creme". I thought I was going to get a smooth, light pumpkin filling. Nope... thick, gloppy and crude.

Neighbors seem to go there, as I see many of them hanging out over coffee (decent) and maybe the inoffensive but far from top quality croissants and muffins. But they couldn't be ordering the pastries... certainly not the pumpkin pie! I defy anyone to order it twice. And it tasted very old, too! I'm assuming the crusts are the same on all their pastries.

Colson's "Patisserie" seems to be just another overpriced coffee place, with sub-par pastries and a fancy name.

I'll stick with the new place on 7th ave. between 8th and 9th streets (Zana??). Their pastry is a thousand times better!

I've come here with my fiancee, and it always feels like we're stepping through the doors into a beautiful, cozy bistro in Paris. The aroma always gets me when I walk past the place on the way to the subway. Pastries are great, service

I'm very addicted to Patisserie Colson which has become one of my favorites sources for great coffee and pastries. The place has a really nice European warm design. Staff is friendly and helpful.\r
