Located on a nondescript section of Park Avenue, Café Bon-Ami has served as a quick place to go to get home-baked pastries and a great cup of coffee on a Saturday morning. On warm days the café opens a patio on the front that connects to the small indoor dining area. The cases at the café are stocked with a selection of home baked goods, many stored in the dishes in which they were baked. On this visit we got a pair of muffins. The morning glory muffin was healthy and moist with the taste of raisins and warm cinnamon. The corn muffin was toothy with coarse cornmeal and handfuls of cranberries. Both were bigger than fists and more than filling.
The owner of Bon-Ami was amicable and you could tell he was proud of his café. It’s an excellent little neighborhood coffee house. If I lived within walking distance in Stadium or Forest Hills, there’s no doubt that I’d make Bon-Ami a good friend.[where: 02910]
