Super fresh French baguettes and various breads/pastries made on the premises daily! There is a unique buckwheat baguette and a great Almond croissant. Staff are friendly and there's ample seating to enjoy your coffee indoors; wooden tables and bar stools, tables in the back and a marble bar with a few stools. The breakfast sandwiches are pricey and hit or miss. The best bet is the egg muffin sandwich.

My favorite new neighborhood place! I had only been here in the morning, to get a pastry (the best almond croissant I've ever had), and a coffee to go, but had yet to try dinner. So glad I did! The sea bass appetizer with ciabatta was awesome, and the lobster with corn dish was perfectly cooked-not rubbery like lobster sometimes is. My boyfriend loved the lamb sausage dish, which I tried and agreed it was definitely yummy. The cherry trifle with sour cream ice cream was heavenly! I will definitely be making this a regular dinner spot now as well.

Brilliant from the cocktails to dessert. A pleasant spot when it is not too crowded. Nicely detailed space that feels as if somebody cared when designing it. Both cocktails I had were delicious, a nice modest selection of good beer too. Food was outstanding. Every dish was a full mouth immersion experience, starting with the bread basket. This might be the best bread and butter in all of NYC. Baked right there in their own bakery it had this way of making me weak in the knees. Crispy crusts and soft centers spread with this carnal house butter (ask for multiple pallets, you will want one for each piece). I had the beet salad, glazed carrots and chicken and dumplings, with the cheese cake for desert. The carrots stole the show, which is an accomplishment because everything was excellent. The chicken and dumplings was rich without being heavy, served in a delectable mushroom broth. The carrots though is what left me starstruck, almost meaty, ginger glazed with a hint of butter. One of the best single dishes I have had in months, maybe years. The desserts were also well crafted. I had the cheesecake and my tablemate had the brownie, neither was too sweet and the cheesecake was so fluffy that you felt lighter after eating it. All around a superb experience and is worth a trip out of you way.

From the outside looking in, Runner & Stone looks like a bakery but get a little bit closer and you'll see that it's much more than a little bake shop. During a recent walk through the neighborhood, a friend and I popped in for a cocktail. I decided to be brave and try The South Brooklyn, an orangey-cocktail made with gin and rye. I usually shy away from rye cocktails, but this was delicious and perfect for sipping (hey, it was pretty strong!). Oh and those baked goodies? A-MAZING! I was eyeing the lemon poppy seed bread throughout my visit and got to take home a slice along with some other pastries. The cheese danishes rock, as do the chocolate croissants. I'm actually pretty sure everything here is simply delicious. Overall, Runner & Stone is beautifully designed, very clean, service is friendly and while I didn't eat anything and just eyed the people's plates next to us, I KNOW their brunch is amazing. So I'll be returning ASAP! :)

We talking about one of New York's finest chefs and bakers who have been flying under the radar. I can't go without ordering the chicken and buckwheat dumplings in an etherial mushroom broth. Whatever the fish of the evening, I expect it's always delicious., has been every time I've tasted. Nothing disappoints, the wines are interesting and fairly priced, as are the cocktails...and the bar stocks Widow Jane Bourbon and Rye, one or the other I always enjoy with bread slathered in butter mixed with caraway seeds. Ask and ye shall receive. I recommend with great confidence in that the many friends and family I've "sent" have praised and thanked. Then there's the breads and pastries. I think I just described tonight's dinner. Checking with my wife. Enjoy.

Just went back to Runner & Stone again. The food was again delicious -- I had the Wggs Benedict again -- so good. The baguette is AMAZING! However the service is still not good. Such a shame because the food is so good. Also I love the design. I want to go back for dinner, but the service makes me hesitant. MY OLD REVIEW (I forgot to post) We had brunch the other day. My dish, a fish cake wrapped in bacon (genius) with a beautifully made hollandaise, poached eggs and their incredible baguette was wonderful. The lobster omelette was good, but I thought small. They have incredible looking pastries and I took home an almond croissant for my mom which she described as perfection! The service was lacking! If you're not going to put salt and pepper on the table (and I seriously hate this concept because it makes the guest and the waiter work harder) at brunch, at least ask me if I need it. The waitress was pleasant enough, but not on the ball. I hated working brunch when I waited tables so I can sympathize, but it was not easy to get her attention and it was not busy. I will be back! Duck pastrami hash is calling my name!

Beautiful setting, really liked the glass/concrete contrast, which felt like a real oasis from 3rd Avenue's generally dingy feel. Had the chef's omelet ($17) for lunch, which had corn, lobster and scallions -- a good idea, but it didn't really come together for me. Bloody Mary was sufficiently spicy and coffee was good. I'd try it again, but maybe not for brunch (which, admittedly isn't my favorite meal).
