The original Karver location opened in Brooklyn’s Sheepshead Bay last year, and the second location opened in Downtown Brooklyn in February. There is a third location set to debut in Manhattan in March.
Karver’s menu includes danishes, croissants, fruit tarts, and eclairs, as well as breakfast sandwiches that can be customized with a variety of breads. The bread options include flavors like ciabatta, everything bagel, squid ink, caramelized bacon and onion, and Kalamata olive.
“The food is exactly what I want to eat every day,” Payard says of the menu.
The bakery portion of Karver is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday. The brasserie portion is open from noon to 7:30 p.m. on Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.
