About Us

Founded by two women who combined their money and their dreams to bring a little bit of France to New York. When a small space became available right next to the Lycee Francais New York, Michele and Aksana knew they had found the perfect location.
At Chez Les Frenchies, you will find a collection of the best French products; Michel Cluizel Chocolat, Mariage Freres teas, Malango coffee, OLIVIERS & CO olive oils, your favorite childhood French cookies and candies, as well as, other French grocery items.
Discover fresh-baked croissants and baguettes, macarons, French pastries and other viennoisserie.
Enjoy our homemade French food with recipes passed down through several generations. 

Although envisioned as a place for friends to gather, COVID has changed the focus and shifted plans. Now you can stop in and pick up a delicious quiche to go or enjoy our outdoor dining space. Take home fresh bread made in France that you can bake at home or have pre-baked for you. Of course our extensive drink menu with coffees, teas, hot chocolate and wellness lattes are always ready to go. Ask us about catering for families or for small gatherings...


Your favorite places, your secret addresses and even your daily routine? 
Les Frenchies on 75th Street, between York Ave and FDR, next door to the LFNY, for the best croissants in town along with those from another bakery on 78th Street. But in addition to the croissants and the “pains au chocolat,” the quiches and the coffee éclairs, there are the hostesses Michèle Saint Laurent and her business partner, Aksana Ivaniuk. My friends and their children stop by Les Frenchies at any time of the day. More than a bakery with a terrace, Les Frenchies has become the small neighborhood French grocery store. It is filled with a smiling, family and happy atmosphere. Les Frenchies are the heart of my discreet village. It is priceless. The best address in the neighborhood..." -  J.C. Agid
