Great quick lunch

We were hungry but did not want a big meal because we were having an early dinner. Perfect size portion. Turkey chili. Chicken parm flatbread. Mushroom tart. Panini mozzarella red pepper. Service could have been better and friendlier.

The service sucks. The food is mediocre. The waitress didn't even bring cream with the coffee then once she brought the coffee, she never came back. I had to go find one of the wait staff to get my check.

It's always good here and there are an array of choices, very good service, and a warm atmosphere. I came with my husband and son to celebrate first time voting at 18. It was nice.

For 32 years, Bread & Chocolate has been a community institution on the northwest corner of Washington, a couple of blocks down Connecticut Avenue from Chevy Chase, MD. It is an amiable, popular café where neighbors, from parents with strollers to men and women with business to do, meet for breakfast, coffee and lunch. Late weekend mornings, when the tables...

I tried this place for carryout dessert. Ordered the bread pudding and they heated it up for me to go. Very tasty. The cupcakes looked good. Expected to see more chocolate on display???

Out of breakfast potatoes at 12:30 Sunday brunch? When there is a Safeway across the street and a Magruder's next door, one cannot be out of potatoes to serve one's guests. As to the food we did get: meh.

This is the default coffee shop in Chevy Chase DC to hold small committee meetings, meet old friends or eat breakfast solo. Friendly service, decent food offerings (a special brunch menu on the weekends) and very respectable espresso and cappuccino.

Visited this cafe for breakfast a couple of times whilst staying at the nearby Fairmont Hotel, just on the edge of Georgetown. Staff are very friendly and the guy in charge is spot on - knowing exactly what's happening everywhere in his establishment. Great attention to detail. The breakfast menu is superb - all freshly cooked and delicious, no complaints... More

A locally owned chain, bread and chocolate is fantastic -- wonderful coffee drinks, if you can break away from Starbucks, omlets made to order, cool desserts, and their own creation, birchermuelsli, that is great. Family and dog friendly!

I like this place to meet friends for lunch. It is casual and the food is dependable good. It's a pretty standard menu with few variations. I enjoy the quiche entree, and of course the hot chocolate is delicious. It's a good choice for a casual meal.
