On Fancy Cakes in the Financial District

Financier, on Stone Street NYC
Photo by myself at Stone Street and Hanover Square, in the Financial District.

I love this part of town near Wall Street, which has an 'ye olde' feeling about it.

Above, Financier is a fancy patisserie. Its name playfully alludes to the name of a French cake, as well as its location in the Financial District.

I regret not stepping inside, though I'm probably slimmer for it. Their assortment of elegant cakes and French pastries is impressive. Chocolate mousse cakes, sacher tortes, berry tarts and petit fours are just some of their decadent concoctions.

They also serve a large menu for breakfast and lunch, cater parties and create one-of-a-kind wedding cakes.

Lucky for everyone, they accept online orders, for pick up, only. (I doubt their perfect cakes would travel well in the US Mail).

For their website, which includes photos of their creations and menus, click here.

OMG - I had lunch there once during a short business trip to NYC! I remember having a little trouble finding that place but the food made the search worthwhile!

Great shot, Kitty. Makes me want to stop in for a bite of breakfast and slip out the door with a little pastry for later :)

Financial District looks sooo Old English!

Looks like you could eat at Harry's Steak House downstairs and then pop upstairs for dessert. I wonder if I could have resisted....

Was it before people came to eat when you took the photo or was it after all left? It still makes an interesting picture.
